I really didn't buy all that MUCH yarn on our visit to the Taos Wool Festival. I stocked up on DK weight wool from Plain & Fancy wool from Henderson, Texas. Their yarns are beautifully dyed! I have about 5 sweater's worth here and then a few various skeins for scarves, hats, etc. The orange super skeins are weaving wool from Weaving Southwest in Taos.

Getting away from 100% wool for a minute, here's my 100% virgin acrylic Granny Babette Blanket, ALMOST FINISHED! Last night, after taking this photo, I finished the top section and started a simple border. I should be finished with it tonight. I just love it! I'm so glad that the weather is cooler so I can use it. Thank you, Alaskan Purl, for the inspiration and pattern!

Your Babette is beautiful. I'm so inspired.

In other news, my office neighbor just got a ukulele and has been serenading me all day. Now I must have one.

I really did enjoy the beautiful yarns that you brought back, sooooo soft! The new blanket is vibrant, and looks like fun to make.

Is this crochetted? I might could do that! Haven't for a long time, but think I could possibly remember! I love the patchwork look.

I admire your restraint in buying only a "little" yarn!
