DFW Fiber Fest

This last weekend was the DFW Fiber Fest. I went with my knitting group which can be a good thing or a bad thing. You either have friends to help keep you in control and not buy out the house or you have them urging you on because a particular yarn is so soft or the right color etc. Since I am still having computer issues the pictures here are not very good. Well that is putting it mildly. I got two skeins of Madeline Tosh alpaca. The color is Posy and the picture is just awful. Hopefully later I will have a better one. The color is so lucious and of course being alpaca it is soft beyond belief. They had a Multnoma Shawl on display. Now I have a Multnoma on the needles but when I saw this yarn I was not able to resist temptation. Amy told me I would need two skeins to make the shawl. I am a sucker for shawls and socks. So I came home and put the other shawl on a holder and cast on the new one. This yarn is so lucious. Now I am going to try and be good and only use stash yarn for my knitting. By the way, everyone knows that sock yarn does not count as stash yarn, right?
