the thing I searched for during my first 'walk-about'.
Of course, retail sales drive the economy and I like to do my bit - so I also bought ---all this.
This yarn combo
this sweater. Or, one as much like it as I can design myself so I don't have to purchase the pattern. It is knit with one strand of DK weight held with one strand sock yarn to give a gauge of 18 sts. I love the sunny colours -nice to brighten a winters day.
The sales clerk at the 'yellow-yarn' booth talked me into this.
This lovely pattern started calling my name just the night before the show, when I read Glenna's blog.
She released the pattern just in time for the fair and mentioned that it would be available at Tanis' Fibre Arts booth. Another must-have for my list.
A sucker for slipper patterns I bought this.
Also a sucker for anything green, I copied Wilma and bought this shawl kit.
A shawl with a straight back is rare and something I like in a shawl. Who wants that more common of shapes with the shawl arrow pointing to the butt?
