"Are you going to any fiber fests this autumn? If so which ones and why?"

I've already gone to my favorite wool festival. The Wool Gathering in Yellow Springs, OH. This year I bought all fiber and a few knitting knick knacks(for my secret pals). I got 4oz of undyed merino roving, 1oz of dyed in the locks wool, 4oz of super soft gray/brown merino roving, a handmade dark wood wraps per inch tool, and 16oz of a steel blue merino roving. I'm in fiber heaven now I just need to make some time to spin. I may also go to an Alpaca Festival that is taking place in a couple of weeks. I love getting alpaca samples from these festivals.

My First Package

I feel so spoiled. This is my first package from my Recession Swap partner. I got two different sock yarns some Koigu and Mama Llama. Lace weight from The Unique sheep. A cool book filled with all kinds of mittens and gloves. A pretty suede pink journal with gel pens to write in it with and a cool shopping bag to use as I see fit.
See just spoiled!

"If I won the lottery what would I do?"

After I have taken care of my family and quit my job, I would buy an alpaca farm and a yarn shop. Then I would devote myself to spinning and knitting for the rest of my life.

Care For Mystical Creatures Kit

I'm a little behind between muggle computer problems and just plain old foggy brain. I forgot to post my wonderful kit that I received from Miverna Lovegood.

The yarn for my owl

Goodies for me, some yarn soak, a pretty little journal and a cute bag to carry everything in.
