So, it was my first time up at Estes Park Wool market- I had a great time visiting with all the woolies!  Can’t wait to go again next year!

Llamas and alpacas everywhere!

There was a handful of little Vicuna running around… adorbz!

I don’t know why you would cut an alpaca to look like a teddy bear this way, but it was a funny sight to see!

Meanwhile this lady lamb probably really wants a haircut!  Such beautiful color in her locks!  If I were adept at spinning, I’d be all over that!

The other half of the Wool Market is a yarn-lover’s paradise to be sure.  Lots of fun and magical yarns and roving being sold!  I found a booth that sold Qiviut yarn- made from Northern Musk Oxen (See Wikipedia for more crazy info on this animal)  I couldn’t afford the $90 for 100% Qivuit, so I went for the 15% blended with Merino which was a mere $30.  It’s still ridiculously soft, and the sagey color is right up my alley.  It’s becoming a scarf based on the Purl Bee Bamboo Wedding Shawl pattern.  Heart!

Anyone who is a Game of Thrones fan, and/or loves to knit, will fall head over heels for this new Winterfell cowl over at the Fancy Tiger Blog.

I can’t believe their surreal photo shoot.  I feel like I’m beyond the wall and it’s a very scary place.  Good thing I have the prospect of a sweet-looking cowl to keep me sane!

I’m going to knit one of these up asap, and I think you should, too.

 

Today brought snow…

And a new little friend who knit himself up in a hour thanks to a little kit from Fancy Tiger, and a pattern from Mochi Mochi Land.  Love forced bulbs!  Love snow!  Love gnomes!  Love it all!
