"Spoils" from Spin-in!

One of the best things about January Spin-in is the opportunity to have all the vendors right in the same room with you!  Of course, it is not very cost effective if you are planning to save your money!  The fibers and yarns are right there to stare you in the face every single day.........We can only resist for so long before pulling out the old pocket book and taking the plunge.  Ohh, so many lovely colors and great variety of fibers right at your finger tips.  What we purchased was only from a small portion of the vendors present. 
String Theory Colorworks --Color strips are different for each skein. 

Lorna Laces yarn from Weaver's Corner in Baton Rouge had a super discount--so had to purchase several skeins for various projects.

Loved this cotton/cashmere blend--such a lovely yellow color. 

Red never shows up right with photos--this is cotton/merino blend--great spinning!  These slivers came from a new vendor at spin-in--love those newbies!

Daily Fibers was a second year vendor-just couldn't reist this BFL, which is the new BFF in the spinning world.

This silk/wool blend comes from the creative mind & hands of Dicentra Designs.  You can also find her on Facebook.  These fibers are a real dream to spin.

River's Edge Fiber Arts had this lovely overdyed BFL (looks more purple in photo than it is).  The orginal was oatmeal BFL wool.

Uncommon Threads of Palm Harbor, FL had this silk, wool, silver fiber--just right for our 2013 anniversary--25 years of spin-in!  Now what will we produce with this silver/wool roving--hmmm, it will need to be very special.  Put the thinking cap on--we do have a few months to ponder............
