Saturday at Sheep and Wool

You know, my feet are still tired.  I feel like I pulled a muscle in the left one.  It didn’t keep me from taking my dog for a walk.  It was so beautiful on the river this morning.  I sat on the pier for  while, then found a place where Gus could wade and get a drink.  I love living here.  Now, if I just had a bathtub like the one at the other house, life would be perfect.

OK.  I guess you want to see what I bought.  Some venders have moved, but, since I would be looking at everything anyway, I did eventually find the ones that I wanted.   It was promising to be a very warm, sunny day so I did the outside booths first.  The Tess booth was packed with yarn and people.  I didn’t see the color and type of yarn I wanted so I got out as quickly as I could.   I found what I was looking for at Creatively Dyed Yarns.  What delicious yarn!  It was all I could do to keep focused.

The top I bought on Sunday. I’ll discuss that later.    Look at the bottom skein.  I love the shading and little flecks of color.  it was a little more expensive than I like, but the label said 5.3 oz.  and when weighed, it was 6.5 oz–enough for socks AND gloves. 

I’ve been wanting to make Coraline gloves.  I found a pattern, but they were worsted weight and I wanted lighter.  I finally found a picture of the actual gloves from the movie which is all I really need.  I found this yarn in the first barn and it was cheap, too.  The company is called Made By Ewe and they are on Etsy.  The yarn is DK and I wanted fingering, but I bought it anyway.  Like I said, it was cheap and it has a nice feel.

Before I forget— Hey, Betty.  I found your needles.

Next thing on my list was a chocolate waffle ice cream cone.  They are really good here.  While waiting in line, someone I haven’t seen in about 10 years came up tp me.  We got our cones and found a place to sit.  We talked for nearly an hour.
