DFW Fiber Fest 2013!

Oh my dear, neglected blog. A lengthier apology/explanation is due, but it’ll have to wait for a few more weeks while I wrap up what has been the busiest Spring I’ve ever had in my life. I popped in to talk/show pictures of this year’s DFW Fiber Fest! I can’t believe this is my third year in a row going and as always I splurged my heart out. This time I had more on my list of “to get’s” than just scouting for yarn. I’ve recently taken up spindling (something else I need to post about) and was on the lookout for new spindles and fiber. It was a great day for it.


Fiber from Two if by Hand (large braid) and Lucky Cat Craft (smaller braids), niddy noddy from Kromski…


…and these awesome spindles from Butterfly Girl Designs (far left) and Spinatude (the 2 on the right). Although I prefer turkish spindles, each of these were too pretty/interesting to pass up. I thought it was neat that the smallest on the left is actually heavier than the other 2. I’m still new so I wanted to have some variety around when I eventually do get better.

Yarn shopping wasn’t really on the agenda, but I made it through 5 minutes before I found some that I couldn’t live without and it was downhill from there. How could I pass up these 2 gorgeous skeins from A Thing for String with such names as Swamp Thing and Gentleman’s Club?


Or these 4 from Lost City Knits, Gynx Yarns, Gritty Knits, and Knitting Rose?


I ended up at Alisha Goes Around first and last on my walk through the vendor hall. And since this yarn isn’t found in the yarn stores I frequent in person or online I figured I should nab my favorite colorways lest I regret it.


Overall, I couldn’t be happier with everything I discovered at the fiber fest, it really is a good one to go to. There was so much variety in the yarns I’ve seen, more so than in the past. I hope you have a chance to look at each of the vendors I referred to above, they are all so nice and help make our crafting endeavors so much more fun. :)

  1. I love your haul! Everything is lovely! I had such a fun time at DFW Fiber Fest this year. I like that it’s a small venue, but it never feels small from the inside with all that yarn and fiber goodness.

    1. Haha that’s how I felt about those skeins too! Really, just beyond words, the dye job was superb. At least next year you can make plans to go! I just heard they’re going to have it at the Irving Convention center at the end of March in 2014.
