Ok, so a few other people have now posted wonderful pictures and have talked about The Knit & Crochet Show. So if you want to see some of them make sure to visit Knittin' Mom (of course!), NWKnitter, and Tiggywinkle Knits.
I promised to show you guys my purchases from the show and this is it! I was either very good or very tired. Altogether I spent 11 hours at the show setting up, with the last hour shopping. It was also about an hour to drive in and an hour back out. This was a big accomplishment because I usually don't drive in the "big city." Anyway, my two purchases are awesome! The one on the left is a tweed yarn by Handpainted Knitting Yarns. Have I ever mentioned that I have a weakness for tweed yarns? Well, I do! I just love them! I had a hard time picking which color I wanted and finally settled on this one. I'm not sure which one it is since it doesn't say on the label. The roving on the right was a mere fluke. I was walking past Abstract Fibers looking at their pretty stuff when they innocently asked me if I spin. I answered "Yes, I do." So they told me that I had to come into their booth where I was bombarded by pretty roving. I was really trying to hold out for OFFF, but no such luck. This really pretty BFL sucked me in and I had to buy it. They assured me that it would probably be all sold out by OFFF and that I had better buy it right then. With such salesmen they just might have sold everything right there at the show!
