Fiber Expo!

Today we went to Fiber Expo with some friends.  That was us, the group with the four little kids!  ;) We like to look at all the animals.

Anyway, it was awesome, though I never get to browse as long I'd like, I even managed to purchase some things, though not everything on my list.

My list: small lap looms - under 6" - (didn't see any), wool yarn for warp I could dye (lots of choices but nothing was perfect), and Michigan sourced dyeable roving (I got some! a BFL/coopworth blend.)

I also got some jewel toned locks of long wool, and some black striped roving (2 oz each, orange and teal).

And now, this is the part of the show where I feature some vendors I thought worth seeking out:

Color Bug Yarns I loved three colorways, and being unable to choose, I ended up not buying anything! :(

Bricolage Studios Her yarn and jewelry are amazing. Also, she shared a booth with the excellent Hands and Notions, from whom I bought some fiber at Maker Faire this summer.

Happy Fuzzy Yarn. Very cool stuff, lots of hand dyeing.

The Counting Sheep Farm Carded batts and hand-dyed fiber.
