Bee Ess Gee
It was pretty full at opening time, with a huge clump of women at the BMFA booth...one woman, in fact, filling up a bag with mill ends and she said to her friend "I'll decide which ones I want later." And that sort of annoyed me, so I left that booth and wandered around.
I bought four skeins of yarn and a beautiful button from Michael and Sheila Ernst for Mr. Green Jeans cardigan that I WILL finish this weekend. It matches perfectly. From top to bottom, the yarns are:
-Huckleberry Knits 8 ply merino in the Soleil Colorway
-Fly Designs Flying Lace (BFL) in the Freemont Colorway
-Textiles A mano La Jolla Silk/Lace
-Textiles A mano La Perfecta Lace
I was so happy to meet Laura from Textiles a Mano...it is a new shop in Eugene but I've never made it over there. She's great...and I'm going to try to get an intern for her to promote her business (or maybe I'll do it myself). Her yarn is very very soft, just lovely.
So then I came home and watched soccer
If the weather stays cloudy, we'll probably go back to the Alpaca show and to see the sheep (Tim likes that part, the shopping part not so much). I was kind of surprised how much alpaca fiber was there...certainly the one thing I don't need right now!
