ooo the fiber!!

 I've been a busy girl this last week. Only 11 weeks until the new baby arrives so knitting as much as I can on baby items. I finished the baby block blanket and I'm  on the last few rows of the Owlie Sleep Sack. I finished spinning the luscious angora yarn for the booties. I ended up with 72 yards which is more than enough to knit the booties. I'm going to use the pattern for angora booties in Last Minute Knitted Gifts. They are worked in a double knit stitch that is fun to do. The angora yarn turned out so light and soft I just can't wait to start knitting the booties but I just washed the yarn and it's drying. I'll be able to start the booties tomorrow. 
This weekend was the Florida Fiber-in. I was only able to make it to one day of the event. I had wanted to go Friday night to sit and spin and look at all the vendors wares but my car died and was being fixed that day. I was happy to make it there Saturday for all the demos and other fun activities that were going on and of course to browse all the beautiful fibers.. This picture is my fiber booty. I wanted to buy it all. So much eye candy. Tomorrow I'm hoping to have time to card some pretty batts for my etsy shop. I'm also going to have a sale and sell some items that have been there for a while.. So keep an eye out if you are like me and love fiber and  spinning. I'm also going to de-stash some handspun yarn that I just never seem to get to use.
I really enjoyed the Fiber-in. It's so wonderful to be surrounded by so many spinners, knitter and fiber lovers. I could do that every day hehehe.

Glad you had fun at the fiber-in! ;D I hope you can make it for more of the event next year ... or maybe you can make it to the Destin spin-in in January?

I'll have to look up the info on the Destin spin-in and see if I can make it there.
