Hey there friends!! It's been a busy last few months, I've been working nearly full time, took a 2 week vacation, and was busily preparing for my annual trip to the Wisconsin Make it With Wool Contest!
|Wisconsin MIWW winners, 2012. Adult, Pre-Teen, Senior, and Junior.|
Since I was at the wool contest this weekend, I had time to check out the 2 vendor barns that are always filled with so many incredible goodies. There was so much yarn! Hand painted, kettle dyed, naked (un-dyed, natural stuff), hand spun, machine spun, small farmed local stuff, and large company produced yarn. My mom and I found this awesome little booth that was FILLED with beautiful yarns that were priced incredibly well! I got over 2200 yards of beautiful naked fingering weight superwash wool, 1200 yards of the softest alpaca, 3 ounces of silk hankies (I'm posting on this separately. Silk hankies are AMAZING!), and a few ounces of soy silk roving! I'm so excited to get down to business with my new materials!
