Spoils of WI Sheep: Part 1
I've let the prizes from Wisconsin Sheep and Wool sit -- which does nothing to mark the generosity of the various vendors who donated them. Also I need to get them into Ravelry so I've not forgot from whence they came. (Always a challenge at Chez Hedgehog-- when TLE started magicking my purchases into my stash, it was a brilliant day!)
So here's part 1, with a second part coming in a couple of days. Top Left and Bottom Right are the front and back of a felted bag from Spry Whimsy. It's fairly thin but should hold a single skein project. It's delightfully bright. I'm pretty sure I've been to their store once even! If it's the one I'm remembering, it was lovely and full of charming things to purchase.
The Top Right is Hidden Valley Yarn, 200 hundred yards of Coopworth. It's very squishy and a nice worsted weight. I have a couple of ideas for it that might even tie into Christmas knitting this year -- if only I can come out from beneath the immediate weight of Loopy Academy projects.
Finally--that Bottom Left is KnitCircus! This is their Greatest of Ease base in the Over the Rainbow colorway. I would be lying if I said I wasn't always drawn to their booth, but I've never had the right project in mind and didn't just want the yarn to linger. This demands work soon and I am already scouring through my Ravelry queue for something appropriate. The rainbow obsession continues!
These were all prizes for the Walk and Knit competition and I've only shown you half and only what I brought home! More to come!
