FIBER FANTASTIC!

So, yesterday I went to my first ever Fiber “Event”!

And the crowd roars!

And I bought yarn!

And the crowd roars!

And I bought a spindle as part of a “Learn to Spin!” Kit!

And the crowd roars!

And I totally exhausted myself wandering around the Wayne County Fairgrounds at the Great Lakes Fiber Show, in the heat of an almost-summer sun with my knitting buddies, and with some new friends, too! As a matter of fact, we saw a new friend walking by herself while we were headed out to the car for lunch, and we had fun adding her to our group! Hi, Mandy!

And the crowd fidgets a little, wondering if the host has made Mandy uncomfortable. . .

But I digress. . .I, being a list maker, made a list of 5 sweaters I would like to make in the near future. . .and, amidst the wool soak and spindle kit, I GOT YARN FOR THREE OF THEM!

And the crowd roars!

And I came home and took some pictures, and wound some yarn (thanks, Michelle!) and cast on a sweater, the Lacy Ribbed Top from the July Creative Knitting Mag!

And the crowd roars!
Now, I am going to go upstairs and knit on my sweater, at least a little, before I turn in. . .what a great weekend this has been so far!

Knit in good health!

  2. OHH so fun!!! So how far are you on your sweater now?

    I think I'm more than halfway done with my market bag. (I think it will only use 2 skeins)

  3. Be careful of the spinning fiber... it's addictive!
