Part 2: What I Bought
The extraordinary thing about this year's Sheep and Wool Festival is that I came home with only a handful of change. Most years I am too overwhelmed to make any decisions on how to part with my hard earned cash.
Not this year. This year I came home with:
2 "Party in a Bags" of handpainted roving (where I learned NEVER to put down the bag you really want when anyone is watching you) in spring and autumn colorways
2 bags of Merino and Merino/Silk blend roving
An adorable Golding Sweetheart spindle
1 skein of Socks that Rock in the Jabberwocky colorway
8 oz of Finn Comb Top in an a lovely pink/green colorway
Buttons from Jennie the Potter for my CPH and to get up close and personal with Heather Ordover (where I learned I am NEVER allowed to open my mouth when in starstruck mode EVER again)
It doesn't look like much for a whopping $200 but all in all the day was priceless.
