I had a good time attending the 2011 Great Lakes Fiber Show with Yarmando & Darlamour.
I picked up three skeins of Creatively Dyed yarn.

On the left we have Woodbrook in colorway Toco. A 100% superwash merinao 250 yards (gauge 4-5 sts per inch on a 7-9)
Center we have Valencia in colorway Ramsay. A 100% extra fine superwash merinao 250 yards (gauge 4-5 sts per inch on a 7-9)
On the right we have Woodbrook in colorway Julian. A 100% superwash merinao 250 yards (gauge 4-5 sts per inch on a 7-9)
I wanted to find worsted weight superwash so I could knit socks. I cast-on with the Valencia on a size 6 and I don't think it's a true worsted weight. I'm going to have to go to a size 3 to get a firm enough gauge for socks. I'm waiting to knit these until I finish another pair of socks.
I love this picture of Yarmando as he shopped Ohio Valley Natural Fibers booth.
He picked up a sweater's worth of yarn.
The best line of the visit came from darlamour. "What's with the kkk sheep?" I think the picture explains it all.
I picked up an ecolution hemp bag TRT1: The Rainforest which is the perfect size for a pair of socks.
I had a good time and appreciated being driven up and enjoying the lemon shake-up.
Next time I'll show you my basket. You know you want to see my basket. It's okay. You wouldn't be the first person to ask to see it.
