I had a small budget which I managed to stick to, amazingly enough. There were many temptations, of course, but in the end I made just a few purchases: a skein of Seda Sock from the Grinning Gargoyle booth (in Signature Red to coordinate with the Espresso Seda Sock yarn I purchased at VK Live last fall), some hand-dyed organic fiber in an interesting-sounding sheep breed I'd never encountered (Manx Loaghtan) from the Yarn Geek booth, a bar of sandalwood soap, and a custom-made batt from KnitSpin!

My pal Sam was there with her yarn company, The Wool Dispensary, which debuted at the 2011 YarnCon. One of my favorite toy designs also made its debut at that show (in her booth, of course): the Button Bunnies! They were on display over the weekend, but if you missed out on purchasing the pattern at YarnCon, you can still snag it for $6 on Ravelry or Craftsy. They are knit with Greater Poison, a hand-dyed worsted weight merino yarn from The Wool Dispensary that is quite snuggly!
