Fiber Fumes…..

Happy Thursday!  I hope you all are well.  It’s our first full week of no school and it’s lovely to just delete that alarm off your alarm clock for a while.

On Saturday I participated in a new fiber festival hosted by the Frederick News-Post and it was a complete blast and success for all the planners and vendors.  I had so much fun meeting new fiber loving friends and sharing our love of wool that I feel totally hung over today (Sunday).  I helped so many with parings of yarns for various shawls that I had on display like my Moon Shadows by Romi Hill and  by Kristen Kapur.  When I am tired and think I can’t dye anymore yarn, it’s this energy that gets me through.

These are all “pre stampede” as the wall of yummy became thin, quickly.

I’m going to revamp my Etsy shop during this off time, new photos and update that sale section.  I’ve been working on my Charlie cardigan which I am so enjoying.  A sleeve, the black and one front is complete as, so one front and a sleeve and we will have a sweater.  I think that is going to be my new favorite way to knit a sweater.  There is lots of satisfaction upon completing each piece.

We leave for vacation on July 2 and I can’t wait.  Outer Banks, I’ve been dreaming about you and your beaches and the salt air……so close, so close.  I could care less about my clothes, it’s basically the essentials nothing fancy.  As you all know, vacation packing is ALL ABOUT the PACKING OF THE KNITTING.  Of course I will over pack here.  I’ve been itching for lace, yep need to scratch that itch.  Designer Ysolda Teague has a shawl called Stac Shoaigh that is calling me in sport weight, so that is a definite to go with me.  There was something else and for the life of me I can’t remember it.

I’ll be back before I go! Be happy!

Homespun Yarn Party 2015

Sunday, March 22 was an amazing day!!  Yes, I am VERY behind on the blog but if you knew how the month of March for me you would understand.  I’ll give a full account in another post.

I was invited to participate in the Homespun Yarn Party in Savage, MD and I was thrilled.  This would be my first exclusive fiber event and I was thrilled and scared to death at the same time.  Due to events beyond my control, there wasn’t lots of prep time.  I’m talking 2 weeks and one was spent with bronchitis, but I busted my butt and there were some late nights and basically I did what I had to do to get stuff ready.

It was a complete blast. Thanks to my family for being my helpers for the day.  It was a team effort for sure.  These are all “before” shots because once the door opened, it was crazy and I left lighter that when I arrived.

Have a wonderful day! I promise to see you more often.

Be happy,

Michele
