small but all, NC has a fiberfest this weekend at the state fairgrounds! it is part of something much larger, but still, there's a building on site full of fiber!
i did get there early, as i always wake up early on saturday mornings (because i have an 8am meeting each saturday). the festival starts at 10am. of course, i was there when the doors opened.
and i got a few treats.
the biggest treat was something i've been wanting for a long time. a NANTUCKET bag!
check out the link above. these sturdy canvas bags are pretty cool. they're incredibly versatile, as a backpack, tote, pockets inside or out, or even as a flat toolbag.
and what's a fiber festival w/o the fiber?
i got some raspberry colored Dizzy Lizzie's sock yarn, and some ...
UNIQUE handpainted yarn, fingering weight.
of course, i should finish my purple kristi socks before i start something new. maybe.
