The market was not actually as busy as I expected, I arrived about 10:30 before the 'Yarn Train' arrived from Sacramento bearing an additional 500 knitters (!). Previously I have been on the Friday so I expected it to be mobbed. It was odd going on my own (instead of with Mammie and Finlay) but I did meet a lot of friends there...well, I guess every knitter in the bay area was in the Santa Clara Convention Center sometime this weekend.
I got to meet the founders of Ravelry who were as sweet and friendly as everyone says.
I planned to buy some sock yarn...and succeeded in that:
ShiBui - I apparently cannot resist this shade of green!
Tess's designer yarns below - great colours and very reasonably priced.
Creatively dyed - I had been wanting to try Sea Wool and these colours were very pretty.
I bought a kit for Fleece Artist Lady of the Lake that I had eyed up online, but had not wanted to commit to chosing a hand-dyed colour without seeing it in person. Again with the bright pea green!
I came home tired and spent-up!
