I feel guilty when I am not able to write something on here every day. Yet when I read other blogs they are not updated every day either..
Stitches is always fun, but a feeling of overload often occurs by the end of the day.
One of the vendors that was new to me was Wagtail Yarns from Queensland in Australia. Kevin Scarlett a partner in the business was a really nice man, and of course I just loved talking “Australian” with him. The booth was full of the most delicious yarns and the colours were so bright and cheerful. I read that they dye all the yarn on site which produces the vibrant lustrous shades.
They have approximately 1400 Angora goats which produce a very luxurious Mohair. On sale in the natural mohair was two weights a fingering weight and also a fine sport weight. Then they also blend the mohair with merino wool or other natural fibers and you can choose from a yarn slightly heavier than a fingering weight, a dk weight and also an aran weight.
I decided to purchase two shawl patterns from Kevin. One called the Twilight shawl was on display in both lace weight and fingering weight yarn. And the second is called Sea Shell Shawl which is particularly versatile as the cover shows it worn as both a shawl and almost a jacket.

And the on line store looks great
