Woolfest 2018

This past weekend I bundled up in the mom van with my mother and my Aunt and we trooped to Wamego to Woolfest 2018! It was Wool Power this year with a lovely Wonder Woman theme running throughout.

It was a nice morning out and about without Jellybean in tow. I was able to peruse the yarn and inhale all the woolly goodness. I didn’t remember to take any photos while were there. It was just nice to spend time with my mom and pick out some goodies.

Speaking of goodies….here they are!

I was better prepared this time. I had planned ahead, set a budget and had specific projects in mind. I wanted yarn for a Knitting at the Library Cowl, Baby Vertebrae, Half Theory Hat, and a Girl at the Grocery shawl. I found yarn for everything but the shawl. I just didn’t find anything that spoke to me and honestly I do have some stash yarn for that shawl that would work.

I did manage to stay within my budget and go home with a little cash. But some of that was because my mother stepped in and bought some of my yarn. I got a new to me dyer Apothefaery Fabrications in her Delightful DK base in a speckle green color for the Baby Vertebrae. I purchased a stitch marker set from Th’Red Head Yarns and its a sheepy themed set. My mother got a BB-8 themed bag from Aunt Stephs Handmade Gifts. She thought Jellybean would like that. My one “just because” purchase was some Knitty Bits 2 sock yarn from Two Windows Dye company in a yellow stripey colors plus some assorted minis for my scrap blanket. And last but not least I hit up a favorite yarn dyer, the TreasureGoddess yarns. I picked up DK treasure skein in Song of the Siren for the Half Theory hat and a gradient set in greys in the Cashmere Super Toes base for the Knitting at the Library Cowl. They even through in some pirate sheep can koozies with our purchase.

The festival was well attended and I was very happy with all my purchases. And it was nice to spend the day with my family doing non-mom things. Now with all this new yarn….I need to get knitting!!

Happy Knitting!!
