As I teased yesterday, I finally am going to show off all the goodies I got at this year's DFW Fiberfest. I've missed the past two years because of work responsibilities, so I just had to make the most of it this year!
They also announced they are opening a store in Fort Worth!!! Good thing it is a bit of a drive over there, or my pocketbook would be empty.
Two skeins of The Alpaca Yarn Company Astral. It's a tencel and alpaca mix. It's so shiny and soft.
I picked up some beautiful wool from a local farm out in Lancaster, TX too. Brooks Farm Solona in the colorway Sol. It's more of a blueish-green. The color of this one was hard to capture in the photo.
And of course, since I'm trying to learn how to spin, I picked up some great fiber as well. Both are BFL, which was reccommended to me as easy for a beginner because of the long staple.
I had so much fun finally being able to go to my local fiberfest. Now to spin/knit all these goodies up!
