Beat the Heat Yarn Tour...the loot

Well, a few of you have asked what I got on my little trip to Flagstaff so here it is. I was happy I had destashed some unwanted yarns so I could shop last weekend.

LM basket
Lantern Moon Rice Basket!  I've always wanted one of these.  I love how they go from this.....

To this!!
Converts to a bowl

I couldn't resist these beauties...still on a blue kick around here...
Fyberspates awesomeness
Fyberspates DK merino/silk!  Sooo soft!

Remember the Churro sheep I showed you last post?
Navajo Churro
Here's 2 balls o'roving ;)  Very cheap too!  8 oz for $12 is pretty good in my book!


My splurge is this 4 oz. of Black Alpaca roving...
Black Alpaca goodness
or should I say ribbons of softness!!  From AlAnn Ranch Alpacas.

At the LYS I picked this Taiyo Sock yarn up to knit something with...shawl I think...
Future shawl yarn

This is a pile of ocean blue ohsosoft Alpaca from the same ranch as before.
Ball o'Blue Alpaca
It's not mine though.  I'm spinning it for a good frined. :) My first custom spin.

Speaking of spinning, stay tuned.

Beautiful purchases. Those baskets are very interesting. It looks like you are going to be a very busy spinner!

Those alpaca ribbons and puffs look divine!

That is a very cool basket! Does the handle disappear into the rim when it's shorter?

Fun stuff. I love your blues:p I had my eye on some Churro on Etsy for awhile. Look forward to your review.
