Fibre East 2012 and a finished object
My friend M and I made a last-minute decision to go to Fibre East yesterday. It was an excellent day but it was very, very muddy inside the marquees - they'd had a deluge on Friday night. Luckily I was wearing walking boots and jeans. I bought a clutch purse which I immediately managed to drop in the mud (luckily I was planning on buying it anyway, but oh my butterfingers!). I picked up one skein of merino/nylon for dyeing from D T Craft and Design - the last thing I bought for dyeing got knitted into a jumper for the Cog when I ran out of yarn. Also picked up a nice heart-shapped shawl pin from Ruth and Belinda, and picked up some more free yarn from the Woolsack stand because they want even more cushions for the olympic athletes - the current batch have all been spoken for.
After lunch we headed back to Warwickshire (to Braunston) to catch up with the Wool Boat where I picked up two balls of James C Brett Woodlander - a DK yarn with a slow colour repeat that I am going to knit into socks for the Cog and I.
Yarn diet? Erm.....

Still awaiting a button closure, but otherwise done.
