Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full!

Ok, I didn't buy three full bags but I did get three different yarns at the Black Sheep Gathering. It's really more of a well, gathering for sheep and the people who care for them. There was plenty of fleece and roving a plenty, but not as much yarn as I would have thought. But what there was was amazing!

A silk merino blend. It's a really rich beautiful purple color, much nice than what my camera captures.

Baby alpaca in a colorway called "October" I didn't even notice that at first, but I love it because not only is my birthday in October, it's my favorite month.

And some more alpaca, it's soooo soft, and the alpaca were so cute, and seemed to be quite a bit cleaner than the sheep.

I met up with Melody, Missamite and Mr. Missamite for breakfast before driving down. Mr. Missamite is a model for all men on how to support the knitting lifestyle, he drove the whole way so we could knit, very nice! Then we met up with several other knittyheads, Applepieisyum, Babbling Stacie, Chameleon, Greymalk, Indigomouse & Cinnamontree. We went over to the Saturday Market for lunch. Now the Eugene Saturday Market is a trip in and of itself. But we had fun just chatting & knitting and putting names to faces.

I think a fun day was had by all. See you all at Oregon Flock & Fiber?
