Read the title of this post. I’ll give you 3 guesses as to what I bought at an Arts Festival this weekend. If you guessed a skein of hand-spun merino yarn, you’re right! Woo!
My mom and I spent this hot Saturday afternoon browsing at a local Arts Festival. It was a pleasant few hours and certainly nice to be on the other side of the booths for a change.
One of the tents caught my attention: It was a booth with hand-spun yarn! Although the yarn was lovely, the lady working the booth was not. She was a little distracted and not very helpful, but I thought the yarn was worth it despite her poor customer service. See pictures below, I hope you’ll agree.
I ended up purchasing 104 yards (1.4oz) of hand-spun, hand-dyed Merino wool yarn. Yum. It was a special treat (from myself to myself). I think it’ll be just enough yarn to make a hat.
One of these days, I’d love to learn how to spin. I have some roving I purchased a while ago, but never got around to learning how to do it. Anyone know how to spin and want to team me? I’ll make you a haaaat. 🙂
