Lots of pretty sock yarn. Bartlettyarns sport cone for a yet to be determined grey sweater. A gorgeous ombré from Jill Draper (who is super adorable & sweet in person). Cute little sock stitch markers from Jennie the Potter. A set of Signature Needle Arts dpn's for socks. A nostepinne for winding balls of yarn. Some funny buttons & a handy Folca notions container. I'm rather proud of myself for sticking to my pre-festival list this year. One of the many highlights of this year's festival (eating fried artichokes, petting unbelievably cute animals & spending time with the friendliest people just to name a few) was getting to meet sock knitting expert/teacher, Kate Atherley. She very graciously listened to my gushing praise over her gapless gusset technique :)
Here's a look at my farmers socks:
I absolutely loved knitting these. Yarn is from SpunRightRound who is one of my favorite indie dyers. The pattern is a great choice for showing off variegated yarns and was simple yet interesting to knit.
