After a perfectly gorgeous Saturday at OFFF, Sunday dawned, rainy and cool. But this is Oregon, rain doesn’t stop us. And by afternoon, it was no longer raining, anyway. I went back out to Canby under gray skies. I met up with Cathy to give her a tutorial on adding beads to her knitting. She’s knitting my Pacific Shawl pattern. I discovered that she’s a lefty! But beading works fine left handed, too.
I stopped by the Gardiner Yarnworks booth to say hi to Chrissy, and found her fondling this cashmere/silk fiber blend.
It turns out that it’s not hers. It belongs to Sivia Harding. I was wearing my Stitchjones Constellation beaded yarn around my neck as a necklace, so Sivia decided that her fiber could be a tiara.
Carson was pleased to have a new fleece. It was sheared on the spot while he waited. How cool is that?
I love how crimpy it is. I forgot to ask what kind of sheep, sorry. I did ask if he knew the sheep’s name, but it only had a number.
I also ran into my friend Claudia. She had just bought some wool, and said I’d be shocked by the color. Not! It was green, and it matched her green handknit socks. I showed her my new blue wool, and my blue handknit socks. We are such creatures of habit.
I’m so glad I decided to go back out. It was way more fun than cleaning the house!
