Considering that I’m on a paid vacation right now (called being on Notice for termination… yay layoff!) – the purse strings were a little cinched for Rhinebeck this year – well that and omg all the yarn/fiber that I have… not much in the way of purchases this year!
I went in looking for a nice bulky yarn for a tunic sweater eventually but never really found anything that I wanted next to my skin. So I wound up making two purchases, both spinning fiber.
First stop was a sushi roll batt from Into the Whirled. It was nice to see Cris – saw her last at Maryland Sheep and Wool but not during the summer like in years past.
Chromatic Composition on Falkland. I’ve spun from a few batts before but never from Cris. I can’t wait. I think I’m going to navajo ply this for a neat gradation yarn.
My second fiber purchase was from Cormo from Foxhill Farm:
I’m not sure if this will see a trip to the dye pot or not yet.
And that’s it! Hopefully in the upcoming days I’ll have a few FOs to talk about and of course a review of Sandy and a pattern/yarn combo that we did with Picnic Knits!
