MD Sheep and Wool Part Two - Yarn

Here are photos of the yarns that I managed to snag! This is Spirit Trail Fibers alpaca lace-weight. Their silk was so beautiful too. I visited this booth again and again. They were all so nice. I will definitely buy from them again.

The Tess booth was one of my goals. I picked up two skiens of Superwash Lace. Janice got 5 for a project that she has in mind. I want to try one of their variegated projects that use this yarn so bad but I didn't have the funds at this time.

Here is my first ever Brook Farm Acero. I managed to get a discontinued colorway for $17.00 and oh my is it gorgeous!

I can't remember the name of the people I got this from but it's called "Alpaca Lite", 200 yds. each in the Fawn.

Here's a close-up. Soooo soft!

Dyed Dreams by Janel Stollnitz. I can't remember what this yarn is made of but it was love at first site. It's destined to by my first Clapotis.

Koigu from the Mannings'. There was a lady there picking out yarn for a mitered blanket while I was selecting my paltry four skiens. She must have had 20 skiens already picked out. I'm sure it will be a thing of beauty.

I had a great time even though I ran out of money and was forced to live vicariously through Janice. I couldn't have asked for a better companion.

Alpaca, and Tess, and Spirit Trail, AND Koigu! What's not to like! Great stuff.

Wow - great stash enhancement! You sure can pick 'em :) KnitWit is one of my favorite podcasts too. I love her sarcasm!
