Sheep Gazing

This past Saturday we stopped by the Great Lakes Fiber Show (it's something of a tradition at this point).  I visited with the lovely Bare Naked Wools folks (you should come play in our knitalong, it's the yummiest yarn imaginable).  But other than a few goodies from their booth, I actually managed to not bring home any yarn.  Shocking I know.  But I'm in the yarn acquisition phase for a new set of books (yes, already, these things have long timelines), and am sort of saturated with yarn-y goodness at the moment.  But, so as not to leave you hanging, [...]
