With all of that yarn shop shopping, here is my haul...
8 oz of Frabjous Fibers BFL Top in "Hespera" and 12 oz of Dragonfly Fibers Merino/Silk 65/35 in "Texas Bluebonnet"
It was mainly a book day. I did score one skein of yarn, Dream in Color, Everlasting Sock, in "Amethyst." I obviously love Berroco books... and got some others, too!
I have to go easy on the yarn. I already have so much that I think it is starting to breed.
On top of that, I came home to find my order (shop update and monthly clubs) from Southern Cross Fibre had arrived. Oh, my! I just got into the monthly "club" for SCF this month (after a year+ waiting list), and also ended up reading the Ravelry SCF group and noticing that an update was going up at a certain time (which always sells out in a few minutes). The owner, David, has many great spinning tips on his blog, a clever toe-up sock pattern for any gauge (especially useful for handspun, with several examples like this one), and wonderful handspun sweater pictures.
Much spinning and knitting loveliness in my future...
