Sheep and Fiber 2012

Things I haven't seen before

Making flowers with Nan.  She uses recycled wool, dyes it and makes these spectacular creations.  They aren't felted- but perhaps made of felt?

At first glance, this appears to be just a smiley lady winding yarn, but look closer.  Her ball winder is on her lap attached to a cutting board!  Holy pure genius batman!

Things that suck me in every time but I refrain

Alpaca Bears

What I actually came home with

Two skeins of sock yarn from two different vendors, a yarn bowl, a wallet and some peaches (from the nearby farmer's market)  I figure if the yarn bowl isn't the dream I imagine it to be, it will still hold fresh fruit.)  Bonus points for playing "spot the seltzer bottle"

I was going to go to that but I was afraid I would spend too much money!

What fun! Gorgeous yarn. As for the alpaca bears, the fluff would soon get matted if anyone actually played with them. and if they're not toplay with, then they're dust catchers. You were wise, and strong, to resist!

Adorethe wallet! Woohoo!
