|Chianti, 7 months, goes for a walk|
I made a beeline to one of my favorite yarn vendors, Cakewalk Yarns and bought three skeins of fingering weight. Then I headed to another one of my favorites, Weaver's Loft
where I stocked up on large hanks of alpaca...just devine. My good friend Peggy and I always spent a lot of time in this booth, but she moved out-of-state with her family and the Expo isn't quite the same without her company.
Plenty of buttons and ribbons to be had.
One year I made the mistake of walking into the gun show instead of the yarn expo. A completely different crowd.
I ended up purchasing five skeins of alpaca from Weaver's Loft and three skeins of fingering weight yarn from Cakewalk. Also...ceramic buttons made in Swaziland that I plan to use on a cowl that I'm nearly finished knitting. I think I will start Stephen West's Daybreak shawl with the black and ivory alpaca while catching game 3 of the World Series tonight. Here's hoping that the Tigers get a win.
