Drool; Or, How Fibre Festivals Make Me Drool

After some soul stealing interesting adventures through Toronto traffic and back, I'm happy and thoroughly prepared to share some purty pics of my home-takings from a day well spent with yarn and a convention centre full of knitters.
Handmaiden Yarn
Handmaiden - Casbah
Three of these sweeties came home with me.
What they will become is still a mystery, but I actually gasped when I saw its colour (which is scandalously done no justice in this photograph).

Indigo Moon Yarn
Indigo Moon - Lace Weight "Autumn Gold"
One lovely hank will become something lovely and lacey.
A choice from the aforeposted post re: purty shawls.

Indigo Moon Yarn
Indigo Moon - Sport Weight "Peridot"
And this single hank o' loveliness in apple happytimes will be (most likely) yet another selection from the above linked grand selection of necessary lace.

And to end the night off perfectly, it's now thunderstorming!

Yummy! I'm going to my first fiber festival in a few weeks and I'm so excited. I'm hoping to find something as lovely as that gorgeous Casbah. :)

Wow...that's some good stuff there. I adore those colors.

those are beautiful choices! I love how bought fall colours - I've always wanted to get a handle on my knit planning so I'm knitting a season ahead instead of trying to catch up with the current season!
