YPF: Brooks Farms Riata

Hmmm … not quite midnight. Can I sneak in a Yarn Pr0n Friday post?

Sure, why not!

Remember this little stinker? Stealing my wallet at the Pittsburgh Knit & Crochet Festival?

Well, I thought I was all done with Brooks Farm on the first day. But then at the end of the day on Saturday, I saw this really cool sideways-knit vest that they had knit up as a sample of their Riata yarn.

I fell in love. First thing on Sunday, RT snuck over there and brought this back to the stash

Two hanks of Brooks Farm Riata.

48% Wool, 36% Kid Mohair, 16% Silk. About 365 yards in each 8-ounce skein

Worsted weight. Very pretty.

I wound the first hank to take to Hurricane Knitters on Wednesday night, but didn’t feel like swatching.

I think that if I make it to MDSW I may trip and fall in the Brooks Farm booth again.

But really. Is that such a bad thing?

You must visit their tent. No booth, tent. It's lovely. Lots of skanks -- er, hanks, lots of colors. Even some sale stuff. And the Tess yarns. You've gotta do that, too.

I always love the look of the Brooks Farm booth. It's a shame I can't fall into it, what with all that mohair. I just have to be sure that I only fondle the Four Play side!
