We had an early morning start and were in the marketplace just after 9am. It was just the right amount of busy at that time - but two hours later, and it became quite claustrophobic! I almost had to start swinging my pointy elbows!
I hadn't intended to buy anything (indeed I only took cash for entry, gas and lunch) - but isn't it always the way that when you don't have money you find everything you've been searching for - and when you do have money, you can't find a darn thing?
So I had to break out the credit card....and on more than one occasion!
Just look at the lovely things I got:

skeins of madelinetosh merino light
in "tart", "glazed pecan" and "kale" colourways
This kit is going to become Earth and Sky by Stephen West and will hopefully resemble something like this:

Then I spotted the perfect companion yarns for some special Tanis Fiber Arts Yellow Label DK that I picked up from Cotton-by-Post yesterday.

|Shelridge Farm DK Soft Touch "natural" and "black" colourways|
I'll use one skein of the Tanis Fiber Arts in the "lemongrass" colourway, and the skein of below.
|Tanis Fiber Arts Yellow Label DK "teal"|
And as if this wasn't enough of a yarn frenzy, then I happened across a beautiful skein of Wellington Fibres yarn that will make a wonderful pair of mittens for my sister for Christmas.

And lastly, I saw a magnetized pattern holder that I simply had to have. This will make my life so much easier when I knit at night.
