As promised, here’s a glance at what I bought at Rhinebeck:
As you can see, mostly fiber. On the top we have Romney lamb (85%) and tussah silk (15%) in the Painted Desert colorway. Immediately below, in bright rainbow colors, is 50/50 tussah and baby camel down. Clockwise from there: 60/40 Merino/Bamboo (vegetable medley colorway, braided); two bags (natural cream and brown) of Romney roving, braided and banded, BFL in Autumn Fire colorway; braided Wensleydale roving in fire colorway; a bag of natural cream Wensleydale mix; jewel-toned alpaca/silk (70/30) blend; Icelandic lamb roving, cream; fawn colored Jacob wool. The green shell shaped bit on top of the Icelandic Lamb is a needle gauge charm that goes down to 0.75mm. And stuck in the lower left corner is a cute little turkish spindle:
As you can see I’ve started spinning the alpaca/silk, and the spindle works great.
And… in knitting news, I finished up some twined fingerless mitts just in time to wear at Rhinebeck:
