I believe it was Monday when I was telling Mike that I was in pretty good shape with yarn and wouldn’t need to buy anymore unless I was making a gift for someone.
Then on Tuesday we got to go to the Boalsburg Farmers’ Market. We normally miss this market since it’s from 2:00 PM to 6:00 PM but we’re on vacation this week and had plenty of time that afternoon. We got a lot of great produce and while we were looking around, we noticed one of the vendors had yarn at his table among other great things. So I guess I lied because I needed this yarn. I’ve not yet found any yarn made right where I live so it would have been wrong to bypass the table.
Tamarack Farm is located in Centre County and they raise Icelandic and Merino Sheep. The yarn I chose is a natural color, a rich chocolatey brown, in a sport weight. I got a little over 400 yards because in the moment I couldn’t really choose and was trying to match it with a pattern. But really, if I need more once I choose a pattern, I can get some since they are right here.
