I had four people signed up for my class and three show. I don’t want to give out in spoilers but I learned a few things. Identifying fibers is challenging, I dislike yelling over heaters and I need to allow more time for the activity. But, I had everything I needed!
Shopping commenced right after teaching and lunch, of course. I did most of my shopping Friday afternoon and ran into a lot of friends.What did I buy? Gray angora, undyed merino, undyed silk (all for blending), dyed black alpaca/silk from Spotted Circus and dyed alpaca from Fiber Optic and a card-it up kit from Hello Purl.
By the time I got home Friday I was *worn out*. My family arrived that evening and Saturday morning I took them to the fiber festival – their first ever. Chris was delighted to learn he could just about everything and his favorite question quickly became “what kind animal is this?”. You’ve got to admit he has good taste – camel and silk.
My parents bought me this cute knitting tote from The Felted Garden.
I bought my mom this bracelet as an early Mother’s day gift from Bur Oak Studio.
