Gorgeous Yarn!!


I went to The Knitting Guild Association's conference and show this past Friday. I didn't take any classes but did enjoy visiting the vendors and seeing some exhibits. These vendors are very interesting since many of their products come from their own animals and are hand dyed. You would never find these yarns at the chain craft stores. I found so many of these yarns gorgeous and irresistible! I didn't buy too much but wanted to share what I bought.


This was hand dyed by the people at Holiday Yarns. I couldn't resist the splash of color running throughout these hanks. It's a DK weight and I hope to make a shawl with it.



You can't really see it but this yarn has sequins running throughout. This little kit came with a pattern to make either a shawl or cowl. Love these colors!



This yarn was on sale and I just couldn't resist the price! It's a lace weight yarn and I think it would also make a great shawl or scarf..


Also from Holiday Yarns, this is a little kit to make a cowl. It even included beads! I've  never tried using beads but there's always a first time!

I also bought a few magazines and special issues devoted to socks. While I was there, I joined TKGA and received a magazine for members only called Cast On.  There are no local chapters of the guild and was told we could actually start our own! Anyone want to join??!!
