Sheep & Wool 2008

So, we went (quite a while ago) and got stuff:

I went with a pocket full of money and someone to carry stuff for me…I ended up with what you see here.  While there was much to see, there was very little I wanted to buy.  Very little actual wool yarn.  Lots of sock yarns and lots of pretty wool blends, but hardly any plain old wool.  I was pretty interested in the organic merino from Greenwood Hill Farm, but didn’t get any.  I think I’ll be ordering some through their website.  It was beautiful stuff.

Since the festival was such a bust, I’ve started looking for DK and Sport weight wool yarns online.  They’re surprisingly hard to find.

The scarf up there is a basic feather and fan pattern, using some “WV Wool/Mohair” handspun.  It’s very pretty, almost silver in appearance.
