i'm always up early on saturdays (meaning, pre-dawn). nuts, i know, when most sleep in. my *to do* list today included this fiber festival.
i am very greatful to the vendors that will travel to these venues. Laura (far left in awesome gradience stockings) drove all the way from kentucky to be at the festival!
by the way, she seriously complimented my hair (as gray la gran's hair is mostly silver-gray). and looked at her and said, "i LOVE yours too!" (her hair currently has colors that coordinate with her stockings).
i also had a lot of fun talking to the ladies of the unplanned peacock studio. they had driven down from virginia. i also purchased a brooch in her booth. it's about 3" long from tip to tip, and is forged.
and i'm glad i got to the booth of wolle's yarn creations when i did, as when i cruised by later ... it was really crowded.
this yarn is handdyed cotton, and is fingering weight. the "strand" is actually 4 separate strands of 2 ply cotton. i plan on using this for some summer shawl knitting.
so, if you're a knitting, spinner, weaver, or crocheter, head on out to the fiberfest. but if not, then there's lots of this:
at the fairgrounds this weekend =)
