. . . even though I didn’t have to really fight for any of the stuff. LOL!
The goodie bags were great! Some of the stuff in them (there were also a LOT of catalogs and business cards and little papery things that I separated out and haven’t looked completely through yet–I will get the list of the donors soon, some of these I’m not sure where they came from): ShiBui needle case, 3 little samples of raw wool from Wool Growers, 2 patterns from Spincraft/Connie Delaney, a dvd video called “Katherine’s Farm” from Rural Route Videos, a cute calculator in a little case from Figheadh Yarnworks, a little fluff of Finn roving from firefly fields, a little fluff of cormo & bamboo roving from Stony Mountain Fibers, some orange & white organic 20.5 micron top and a coupon from eXtreme Spinning.com, a raw wool sample from Tranquil Morning Farm, 2 Silly Milly polymer clay buttons (one is a cardinal–WV’s state bird!) from Clay Squared to Infinity, some cool colored superfine merino/tencel from Chameleon Colorworks, a ruler/needlesizer/magnifier from KnitPicks, a pretty sample of handdyed merino/bamboo roving from Miss Babs, shawl pins and wooden buttons from Holywood Knits, stitch markers from Designs by Tami and Hullion Artworks, polymer button from Zecca, a teeny bit of malabrigo yarn from Simply Socks Yarn Co.
I knitted. I got door prizes. I ate. I talked. I knit. I slept a little bit. I sold a few t-shirts and baglets.
Will write more about the rest of my prizes and trades and the yarn I spun later!
