catch up

there has been lots of fiber and lots of life going on in my world. i'll stick with the fiber, it's the most fun. i was asked to join some fiber-friends to visit a new festival in the area. by "in the area" i really mean 'you can drive there, do the festival, drive home, in a day'. sadly the day we went the rain would not stop falling from the sky. we chose the scenic route (we got lost) and arrived later than we had anticipated. the festival was on a campgrounds in large (think circus) tents. there were about 15 vendors in a tent and the rain just kept coming. i just got one picture of the day and it was this fine fellow and his charge. there were lots of animals at this festival, and some unique vendors. i purchased icelandic roving to try, organic merino hand-paint yarn, and ordered a spinning basket. i  also got lots of knitting done on the afternoon tea shawl. in fact, that is all i've been knitting on. i'm really ready to be finished with it so i just keep knitting on it every where i go.

We weren't lost, just following the GPS! It (and google) were all about the scenic route.

I'm almost ready to start the third color on the Color Affection shawl. Still not sure if I have enough yarn or not. Time will tell.
