Yarn Crack

I had made myself a little secret promise that if I finished my Dublin Bay socks for Socktoberfest, I would treat myself to some Koigu. One of the LYS in town had a mini fiber festival today so I headed down for a little bit. I got to see spinning for the first time. There were four ladies spinning on various wheels. It was interesting to watch. For months now I've been hearing and reading about spinning on blogs and podcasts. It was nice to actually see it for real. Now I would like to see someone use a drop spindle.

On to the yarn pron. I bought my first crack Koigu today. I have drooled over this yarn for months and now I finally have some!

I bought two skeins in color P609 84. It is a lovely bluish purply pinky colorway. And so soft!!! Yummy Yummy! I have no idea what I am going to make with it but I know I will wait until I find an absolutely perfect project. Until then, the yarn will be petted.

I also received my Winter IK on Friday. Although the pictures are lovely, I really didn't see any projects that I will knit up. They all seem to be on the smaller side and as I am not a small woman, they don't appeal to me too much.
