Looking back, I think I bought more this year, than I have previously. I certainly bought more yarn! All About Yarn had discounted yarns for $2 and $5 a skein!
13 Skeins Berocco Inca Gold - 80% percent Merino/20% Silk:
7 Skeins Boreale by St. Denis - 100% Wool
4 Skiens Lana Grossa Baby Kid - 60% Superkid Mohair/40% Microfiber
2 Skeins Nordique by St. Denis - 100% Wool
3 Skeins Creative Focus Linen by Nashua - 50% Cotton/50% Linen
6 Skeins Creative Focus Linen by Nashua - 50% Cotton/50% Linen
I also bought 6 skeins for gifts. And since they're gifts they don't count as stash!
From Avalon Springs Farm - Gwenivere yarn, 100% Alpaca in the Nuts and Berries Colorway:
These were marked down to $5 per video tape. Yes, I still have a VCR in my sewing room!
Elizabeth Zimmerman - Knitting Workshop and Knitting Around
Deb Mentz - Spinning Cotton, Silk and Flax; Immersion Dyeing; and Blending Colors on the Drum Carder
New Needles - Siganture and ChiaoGoo. The ChiaoGoo are already in use.
Lots of Fiber including some creamy merino to blend with some silk:
I didn't realize Baltimore County (where I live!) has a Wool Growers' Association:
Blackberry Fields Farm - 100% Leicester Longwool Roving
From Little "Barn: Wool, Alpaca, Mohair, Silk blend
From Wool of Wales - 100% English Leicester. The shawls and things she had were absolutely gorgeous. The plan is to spin laceweight yarn to make the Pax Tunisian Lace Shawl.
The only purchase I'm questioning are the dyes I bought. They were on sale, so I can't return them.
I thought I was buying dye for wool, but these are for silk, cotton, linen and rayon. I know I had the wool dyes in my hand, so I must have put those down and picked up these. I'll probably sell them on Rav.
So that's it for MDSW 2012. At the end of the day on Sunday, I told Harold, I was tired and shopped out, but I wasn't ready to go home. It was a perfect weekend and I'm glad I had DH to share it with. Or maybe it was perfect because he was there. Either way I'm a winner!
