Spin Your Stash is a Ravelry group I belong to and one of the threads is called "Slipped A Little." Since the aim of the group is to spin down stashed fiber before buying more, there is a thread for those little slip ups while visiting fiber fairs. I have to admit, today at Tallgrass Farm's Spring Fiber Jubilee, I didn't merely slip, I fell flat. Ouch!

My next stop was Raveler Minoux's Ambrosia & Bliss display in the store. Realizing some of my stash was being mailed to a new home, I figured I could use a few replacements. I bought two braids and what she calls a "Scooby Snack" which is a tiny batt. I bought the snack after telling her there is no way I would ever buy carded batts because, well I have a Pat Greene and plenty of dyed fiber and glitz and could always card my own. Famous last words indeed...
I never miss the barn and there was Linus's second clip. Linus is an Angora Goat born and being raised on Tallgrass Farm and I bought his kid fleece last fall which is this fabulous tri-colored fleece. His second clip was gorgeous too. Fortunately, I lost the arm wrestle with the other shopper as I have yet to spin Linus's first clip. But yes, I will spin it soon. I'm saving him for the Tour de Fleece he's that pretty.
