the shepard's market was the second saturday of the month and it was wonderful.....lots of beautiful fiber and fiber folks. having just been to a ginormous festival, with everything available to see, touch and buy, i was struck by the quality and variety we have right here at home. beautiful yarns, rovings, fleeces that come from fiber folks that work hard to have a lovely product. and of course, there was fiber that needed to come home with me and hop right on my wheel!
so what else? my little fiber friend earned three ribbons at the skein & garment competition and purchased her own wheel. an ashford traditional with lots of extra's that she will need. i had a great time 'showing and telling' about her progress.
the second medusa is done, and just in the nick of time. i had dyed this yarn (BFL) with amythefibergoddess hoping that it would complement an outfit for a wedding that i'll be attending. my cousin is getting married next weekend on 'good harbor beach' in gloucester, massachusetts. the beach. in the evening. i keep joking (not really) that i'll be wearing polar-fleece to brace against those ocean breezes. at any rate, i'll have a stunning wrap around my shoulders....
which left my needles bare. as i get to the end of projects, the anxiety builds until i know for certain what is being cast on next.
