The Buffalo Knitting Guild of America chapter held its monthly meeting in the form of their annual yarn auction this week. It was my first visit, and I had a wonderful time. Nice people!
It was held in the community room at a local temple, and there were easily 150 members in attendance. 125 yarn lots were sold, for literally pennies on the dollar. What a bargain! The auctioneer, Sharon Gerstman, did an entertaining and efficient job of keeping things moving along, which was appreciated by all.
What did I buy? Well, I didn't buy yarn. I have a stash that dwarfs my couch at this point, and it seems excessive to add to it when I have so many projects backed up.
That didn't keep me from shopping, though. I bought pattern booklets, books, and magazines. 13 to be exact. For $9.25. I know. All I want to do is dive in head first reading all the articles, and deciphering construction techniques! (I know, my nerd is showing! I can't help it.) There are so many articles and patterns to learn from - it's why I love this craft so much. The learning curve is infinite.
