Knitter's Connection Marketplace 2011

I spent a weekend in Columbus to meet up with my old knitting buddies. It was so great to see them, and we were all gathered for Knitter's Connection. I didn't sign up for any classes, but I did come for the marketplace. It was small, but there was still tons of great stuff! I also got to meet Kimber from Fiber Optic and Liz from MacKintosh Yarns -- and her sweet service dog, Mac!

Of course, I couldn't leave without picking up some souvenirs.

I got two skeins of lusciously soft handspun alpaca from Liberty Alpacas...

A gorgeous orange & purple braid of Falkland from Happy Fuzzy Yarns...

and one of Fiber Optic's really gorgeous gradient rovings (dusty plum to olive).

(Did you know Fiber Optic is opening a brick & mortar shop in Cincinnati later this year?! I'm so jealous now that I've moved away!)
