Okay, enough of that. On to the fiber! I've been meaning to share my small, but delightful haul from the Fiber Fest a couple weeks ago. So without further delay, I give you this yumminess:
Don't you just want to squish it?
2 ounces of Alpaca from Cheltenham Cottage:
8 ounces of Merino from Custom Handweaving:
1 pound (!) of 3-ply Peruvian Tweed Alpaca from Village Spinning & Weaving:
As yummy as a chocolate croissant!
I can't wait to try the fibers, and this yarn! No photo, no amount of perfect lighting, would do this yarn justice- you'd have to see and feel it in person. The colors are gorgeous, and it feels amazing! Soooo soft! MJ and Mary-Heather can attest to this. I don't recall (really, I don't) exactly how many times we went back to this vendor to fondle these yarns (they had vats of it), but as many times as I needed to, to be convinced to buy some! I'm calling this my chocolate croissant yarn, named after the unbelievably gooey and delish chocolate croissant MJ and I picked up that afternoon from a cute French bakery by the beach. Sadly, I don't know the name of the place, but I think my nose could point me back in the right direction. Now...what to make??
