But hopefully in time, she will begin to
- (1) Tahki Select Star 163 yards 60% Tactel nylon/40% polyester sinflex. I have NO idea what I'll make with this one, but for $2, I figured, "Why not get it?"
- (4) Ella Rae Classic Print 219 yards 100% Wool. (2 in color 200 and 2 in color 209). Again, I don't know what I'll make with these, but I can at least knit baby socks to give away if I can't think of anything else.
- (1) Peace Fleece Violet approximately 200 yards 70% Merino wool/30% Mohair. I plan on making a soaker for Charis from the Curly Purly pattern.
- (2) Mirasol Tupa 137 yards 50% Merino wool/50% Silk. (1 in color 800 and 1 in color 808).
Like I previously wrote, I would LOVE to go back next year. Some things I will do similarly, such as: carry Charis in my Boba, arrive as early as I can, walk around to the different vendors before buying yarn, and bring my own water and food.
Things I would do differently include: getting a festival flyer as soon as I walk through the gates (I got mine after being there for two hours), have a pen/paper handy (so when I see something I may want, I can write down the vendor, yarn, and cost), write down ISBN numbers of books I want (I can buy the few books I wanted cheaper online), bring sunscreen (I got burnt), and bring a hat for the pumpkin (AKA Charis).
