Manitoba Fibre Festival

This past weekend, I went to the second annual Manitoba Fibre Festival. Let me tell you about it!
Have you ever gone to a Fibre Festival? I mean, if your area has one, you should mark your calendars, switch shifts with your co workers and count down the days (thats what I did). My hype was sooo worth it. Being only the second that the Winnipeg area has seen, it was my first Fibre Fest. It was exactly as I expected and completely different. I don't even know if I can even explain why. It was simply wonderful. The like minded people, all ages and from all different walks of life. All coming together because we want to support handmade products and producers. Oh, and because we all love fibre.

Anyway, I thought I would show off some of my purchases!

A super pretty, and only slightly out of my knitting skill league, the Rhizome Hat (also available on Ravelry here)

 Two super amazingly soft skeins of alpaca wool. This was the yarn I could absolutely not leave without. Now I just need to find a pattern that puts this yarn into the spotlight.

Alpaca Sticky notes? Yep! Just in time for school to start!

The Oh-so-soft-and-wonderful pom pom! Hats have never been more fun.

 A Thrummed mitten kit! Probably also too advanced for my knitting, but it will be wonderful to try. Maybe over the Christmas break!

Did someone order a giant crochet hook? Oh that was me. I am so excited about this one. Its made of maplewood, and it is just so pretty. Maybe I'll make a super chunky blanket in the future.

I had a grand old time at the Fibre Fest this year. Do you have anything similar in your area?
