Second Annual Kentucky Sheep & Fiber Festival

| Saturday, May 21, 2011
I spent the afternoon with fiber and friends and it was fantastic! (The three 'F's') I was a very good shopper today and only bought yarn for projects that I had in mind.  (Both for my Mother and Mother-In-Law)
Today I was a true Miss Babs Shopper.  I purchased 2 skeins of "Yummy" Sock Yarn, one in the Iris colorway and the second is Into the Abyss. 

The freebies in my bag at the time of purchase were; 'Swatch Me! 10 yd Sample' in the color Lake Michigan. Along with a simple silver ring adorned with a amethyst colored stitch marker.

A quick hello to Laura & Leslie form the The Knit Girllls Podcast who I happened to finally get to talk with in person.  They are so great! Check them out on there Podcast.

Yarn Review~Dubai Knits

I am pleased to introduce to you Dubai Knits, by Jocelyn

This fantastic yarn comes packaged with loving care and a sweet sense about it.  My yarn was delivered in a 2 day span of when I was personally contacted by the designer to let me know my shipment was on the way.  As I anxiously opened the package, my eyes were drawn to the simplistic and bold 'Dubai Knits' glossy sticker that held my package wrapped in pick tissue paper. As a little thank you from the designer, she placed a small tag that thanked me for my business.  What a personal touch!

This particular skein for yarn is a 100% BFL superwash.  The color way is called 'Cosmo', which was inspired by one; flowers that were near the IDP's house when she was a young girl, and two, a favorite orange soda that had the same name.

I would recommend this yarn to anyone wanting to try something new!  This fingering weight yarn could be 'ewesed' for socks, lace projects, or anything with a spring flair.  As the project was being knit, the fiber was like water flowing in an out of each stitch over my needle tips.  Head on over to Dubai Knits and check out how you can enhance your summer stash.
