NH Sheep & Wool Festival, Part II: The Haul


I think I did remarkably well at following my self-imposed spending restrictions. Instead of one knitting project and two spinning projects, I got two knitting things and one spinning, but Caitlin gave me permission to make the substitution. And I went over by $2 in the "non-stash stuff" category. But really, considering that the weather was gorgeous and conducive to hours of shopping, and that, come on, it was a wool festival and therefore practically immune to feelings of restraint, I'm quite proud of how well I did.

I finally found a new bumper sticker! (Read about my bumper sticker issue here.) Behind it, you can see the Poseidon sock yarn.

I hope that when you start the dolphin socks you share lots of in-progress pictures because I love how her things look, but am *so* intimidated by the thought of actually knitting them.

And the armchair yarn holder looks like a fantastic thing. Do you think Dewey will stay out of it or will you be putting it out of reach when you aren't around?

Congratulations on sticking to your plan and to coming home with some great stuff. I'd say being a mere $2 over-budget is truly impressive!

Funny - HodgePodge is my local store - I knit there every other Monday night (and whenever the spirit moves me at other times!!!

I bought a kit at Ball and Skein, too - only I got GUST by Knitspot!

Almost got myself a cup like your cream pitcher - but, it really wasn't in the budget. Next year!!!

That roving is GORGEOUS!!!
