The Greencastle Fiber Event was awesome!

There was so much yarn and fiber that a couple of times I was actually overwhelmed.
We were good and shopped more than half of the booths before I saw this

Which I had to buy immediately. It's Alpaca silk.

I luuurve it.

It's considerably harder to spin than any wool I've used before, but, I'm getting it.

I did not even look at the wheels because I know they're not in my price range. I want one. A lot. I figure the only way I'm going to get one is if I find a used one somehow.
The other thing I went specifically to get was this: 1500 yards of organic undyed wool. I also got some natural dye stuff.

I've been collecting various undyed yarn, soon to appear (dyed) in my store, but I didn't have anything organic until now.

Stay tuned!
Oh and one other thing found it's way into my car.
She is an Angora English doe, about 7 weeks old.

Caitie has been asking for a rabbit since last year's fiber festival. She got books from the library, researched it a lot. I've said for years that I would let her get a pet when she turned 10. Which it so happens, she will be doing tomorrow. Dang, how did that happen so fast?


  1. Gorgeous fiber!

    That bunny must be so pettable! (How exactly do you harvest angora? Any chance you'll have angora yarn projects at some point?) I just want to snuggle her!

    Happy Birthday to Caitie!

  2. that is a darling bunny! sweet!

    how soon will there be yarn???

    will there be a happy birthday bunny cake this year?

  3. I so want to bunny-sit for you next time you leave town...but your bunny might come back bald.

  4. HEY Indy Knitters! What are y'all doing for the Harlot's event next week. We are coming over from Ohio and want to know!!!
