This weekend is the annual Kid 'n Ewe fiber festival in Boerne, Big Texas. I ventured out there today and wouldn't you know, I bought some yarn. I bought so much yarn that I'm going to have to devote two posts to the weekend's yarny extravaganza. In addition to driving to Boerne and back, I also had a rehearsal and a concert today, so I'm too tired to go into all kinds of detail about the goods or the festival. I'll save all of that for tomorrow. Here is some of what I bought...
Sock yarn from The Accidental Knitter. After wandering around for awhile, this was my first actual purchase. The yarn is upstairs right now and I'm too lazy to go look at the name of the colorway and the other specs, but it's good yarn. It has a nice twist and it's superwash. I remember that much.
This was my last purchase of the day. I almost didn't make it into the third building and when I got there I discovered this yarn. The people who were selling it were from Henderson, Big Texas and almost all of their yarn was just like this. They called it sport weight, though I'd say it's thicker than that. It's sort of like a thinner Malabrigo or Manos type of yarn and they had awesome colors. I'm going to use this to make some sort of gender neutral baby item. The colors in this photograph don't do the yarn justice. The sun was setting by the time I got around to taking pictures.
I bought the next two items from Lone Star Arts . I actually know Amanda , the woman behind Lone Star Arts from my knitting group. She had a very impressive booth full of yarn, roving, stitch markers, project bags and other goodies.
Superwash Sock Yarn in Egypt. Again, the colors are more vibrant in real life, but you get the idea.
Small Project Bag. This is similar to the Knowknits bags, but it's a little bit bigger and much cuter. I really need to figure out how to sew!
Be sure to come back tomorrow for Kid 'n Ewe Part Two: Brooks Farm Yarn.
