SAFF Purchases

I didn't have a lot of money for my trip to SAFF this year, but I did buy a couple spinning things.

A pretty, buttery yellow sweatshirt, that says, "I Spin to Knit".

Here I am wearing it (I couldn't smile, because I was exhausted after SAFF):
SO tired after SAFF, but Happy!

And another 8 ounces of beautiful "English Garden" roving from "Shepherd's Corner". I already have 8 ounces in the same color, which I bought last year. Now, I have a pound! :D

I also bought some yarn for knitting, a pattern book, and a bar of handmade soap for sensitive skin. Here's my total haul this year:

SAFF 2007

I had a WONDERFUL time yesterday at SAFF (Southeastern Animal Fiber Fair) in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina.

The weather was perfect, the yarn was gorgeous, the animals were sweet, and the spinning wheels were beautiful.

More Roses

I still haven't spun a thing. I'm a BAD spinner. I've mostly been knitting and sewing lately, but that will soon change. I'm going to SAFF in a couple weeks!!! (Southeastern Animal Fiber Fair in the mountains of North Carolina.) I'm sure that seeing all that fiber and handspun yarn will light a fire under me. I'm so EXCITED!!!!

Last night, my hubby walked in the door with a dozen roses for me. He's in the dog house right now. I'm still pondering whether to let him out or not. ;)
