After spending 4 days and going $100 over-budget, I would like to introduce you to my latest stash enhancements (notice the unintended pink theme):
Sassafras Creations -- made from recycled knitting needles. There are 6 balls of Ironstone Sky from Fiesta Yarns. I actually bought 8 and immediately knit the pink ones into my version of the Baktus -- and wore it to the Market the next day:
The big ball of Muppet fur was purchased, along with the matching HUGE hank of rayon, after some excellent salesmanship on the part of the vendor and a bit of coercion by TNKnitter. It reminds me a bit of Animal.
I also purchased 3 hanks of Mica from Berroco, 2 hand-dyed hanks of sport weight from Creatively Dyed and 4 hanks of gorgeous art yarn from Jazz Turtle Creations - one of which I promptly whipped up into another scarf before we made the return trip home and another I turned into a belt when I got home Sunday evening (as if I hadn't had enough of knitting by then - NEVER gonna happen).
Despite 2 tornado warnings while we were there, it was all-in-all a terrific trip. I'm saving my pennies for the next one.
