Pittsburgh Knit and Crochet Festival

I went for a spindle and fiber, I came back with only fiber.  Grafton Fibers wasn’t there so no spindle for me.  However, I did speak with the owner of Seaport Yarn and she said she’d get the spindle that I was looking for and send it my ways.  She’s a Grafton vendor.  😀 I’m pumped. 

DSC01395So I got some GREAT deals on roving.  Kitty cat is included for scale.  Keep in mind he is a BIG kat, about 15lbs and not considered over weight.  Being big is in his nature apparently.

First off, the Cherry Tree Hill.  I love this stuff.  Oh the colors.  You pay for the colors in the price though.  I’ve never seen this for much less than $25 for 8 oz.  It’s soooo worth it though.

DSC01394Next up is a Jelly Roll wool batt that I got from Decadent Fibers. Again with the gorgeousness.  1lb.  It has dark blue and a lighter blue and it’s swirled around.  My boyfriend picked it out because he liked the colors, so I think he’ll get a hat from this.  In fact he picked out a lot of the colors I ended up with.  It’s kinda like when I went to Great Lakes fiber fest and my mom gave me her opinion on colors so I bought what she liked… this time I bought what my BF liked.  lol.  Although the Cherry Tree Hill something I wanted.
DSC01389Next up.  3lbs of Lincoln wool roving.  Only $12 a pound.  I had to get it.  The orange one has some mohair in it as well.  It was purchased from the nicest lady who has a farm with 70+ sheep.  She was also selling some angora rabbits which were so cute.

I think I scare my cat just a bit. He looked terrified by the end of my photo shoot. hehe.DSC01391
