I Was Too Overwhelmed To Spend All My Money

and that's a first for me. But I was so busy touching everything and looking at everyone that I couldn't concentrate on actually shopping. That's not to say I didn't buy anything at all. I did get two skeins of this for a cardigan for me.

Briar Rose Grandma's Blessing. And it is so soft.

Oasis Yarn Aussi Sock yarn for a sweater for Reese. I love the colors, it looks like ice cream.

Little Barn Heavy Metal for hats for some little girls I know. They should love the bling.

Aren't fiber festivals wonderful? I was too overwhelmed to buy much over here, too. Your little haul looks great; I love the blingy yarn.

It was a great day to be there. Not too cold, just windy enough to warrant a shawl. I managed to avoid most of the crowds and not wig out.
The bus adventure didn't go as planned which made a serious dent in my time. But I was able to get 2 skeins of STR lightweight but missed finding Briar Rose as I 'need' more fiber. LOL
My overall score was 8 out of 10 and I did have a long, tiring, wonderful day.

Such beautiful yarns, I love them all!

That stuff looks delish. I am amazed at how overwhelming the selection of yarns we have. My mother was tickled pink at her acrylic 'Wintuk' at the five and dime. We are the fortunate ones.

LOL, I've had that happen. Too many lovely choices and I don't buy anything.
It looks like you got some great new yarn. I can't wait to see what you do with it.

Wow, that yarn from Briar Rose Fibers looks beautiful. Can't wait to see it on your needles!

You are so lucky. I have always wondered what briar rose fibers are like from listening to Cast On for a few years.

I would always get overwhelmed when I attended the Stitches East conference.
Love what you came away with!
