Fiber high

Just came back from Maryland sheep and Wool. Need to nap.
In the meantime here is some yarn porn for you.

Note the koigu/kersti mill end plunder. The mill end booth was swarmed. There was plenty for us all in the AM, but I don't think I'm going to be forgiven by Chelle from hoarding the orange
(Note to self: next time move the empty plastic bag out of the photo, dumbass)

I also got a new Bosworth spindle, so more Crystal Palace DPNs, a big thing of Kookobura wash, dye packets, an antique sock darning egg, some dyed silk hankies and lots of undyed roving in various fibers.

I will tell you more later. Sleepy time.

my, my, my...looks like your purchases multiplied since you got on the bus. Where did you have that sock darner hidden?

Lauren: I htink it was .12 a gram this year. Because they are mill ends and don't have an exact weight, they load them all on a scale and give you a total.

I have a handheld postage scale, so I can weight them when I want to figure out what I need to make something. I really think knitters should have one- they are only like $2 on ebay and really handy.

lisa: I forgot about the darner on the bus- it was buried in the mill ends.

My husband thinks it's a broken maraca too Bezzie!
