Maryland Sheep & Wool 2008!
Posted by Amber on May 11, 2008
Yay for new yarns!
This year was very much like years past — drove up with my friend bloglessStephanie and her friend bloglessCristie; saw lots of fun things, ate a delicious lamb sandwich, and then promptly fell asleep on the way home.
I didn’t hit any of the meetups, and for a change only ran into a few people I knew (instead of EVERYONE). I also didn’t go as crazy buying yarn – I just have so much at home that I can’t wait to knit up; so adding more super cool yarn (especially when I couldn’t/wouldn’t cast on for new projects until returning from Texas; and already had a project earmarked).
Spirit Trail Fiberworks;100% Bombyx Silk Laceweight:
I sent my mom the URL for that photo; she asked me “what’s that giant silver Kentucky thing under the yarn?” … “A quarter.” My mom’s not one to read the spinning blogs :-)
Brooks Farm, Willow (30/70 bamboo/wool):
I’m thinking of making a cute summery cardigan. Probably top down, so I can get as much sleeve as possible.
Green Mountain Spinnery, Sylvan Spirit (50/50 wool/tencel):
Although it’s a single ply, I’m going to use it to make the Tangled Yoke.
So that’s it. I figure I still have a few things (actually, pretty much everything…) from the last sheep and wool. Must get knitting!! The yarn needs to fulfill its yarny destiny!
