As you could probably guess as a first-time fiber festival attendee, the excitement REALLY got to me! I was so excited but tried to contain myself to a few gems and some yarn for Christmas gifts this year.
From the top, some beautiful striping worsted yarn and merino wool destined to be guy gifts this year, a beautiful red fingering wool/alpaca blend, O-Wool local, angora sport weight, and another huge skein of striping merino.
I gained a newfound love of alpaca and the angora rabbits that make literally the softest yarn I have ever laid my hands on. All I have to decide now is what patterns to knit! I only have about 50 yards of that angora, so I'm thinking maybe stripes in fingerless mitts? Whatever it is, I want it to be something close-contact so I never forget how soft and wonderful it is.
