A wall of color at Liberty Ridge Farms:
Too much funnel cake!
B fell in love with beautiful laceweight from Maple Creek Farm in seafoam colors, I loved the pastel lavenders, so I bought these skeins for us:
I had to have this gorgeous roving from Frelsi Farms, it's Icelandic sheep and silk:
I bought this colorway (Twilight) of Ashland Bay roving at least 10 years ago and adored it (it's spun up, and the photos are in this entry). I thought it was discontinued, but it turns out it's not merino, but "Fine Wool!" I bought all that Delly's Delights had, which was a lot:
I had to have this 50/50 wool and mohair blend from Friends' Folly Farm:
Carolina Homespun provided these temptations:
4 2-oz put-ups of Chasing Rainbows bombyx roving (2 are presents)
a Bryspun size 4 24" circular and a Lantern Moon Destiny size 4 32" circular
a hand-turned hair stick
I also got DD #2 (J) a beautiful spindle from Hatchtown Farm (no pic, she stole it already). She likes to spin, and her spindle is a very basic thing, so I thought she deserved this one. She REALLY wants a wheel, but I want her to practice with a spindle for a while; then she can use one of mine. She's not happy about that - B has her own wheel, which I bought when B was about a year old, and J is jealous and wants her own wheel, too. However, I'm running out of room for wheels, so no wheel for J at the moment. :o(
I adore dragonflies, so I'll use this on a jacket or cardigan that closes only at the neck. I'll look around for a pattern, or make one up. Maybe I can add a button to the Pearl S. Buck cardigan? I would knit an I-cord loop at the top of the neck. I know it's a terrible picture, but my current camera doesn't like closeup shots.
I'm sorry it's over! We had so much fun. Now I'm looking forward to cooler weather and spinning up some of what I've bought.
