Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival is this weekend. I’m really looking forward to it! I’m teaching on Friday and Saturday afternoons, and playing the rest of the time. The weather report is looking decent as of this moment, which would be great after last year’s monsoons.
Things I’m looking forward to:
Knitted Wit’s booth. Always lovely things there, and this year she’s debuting her Cotton Candy yarn, 100% merino super bulky. You can see my Big Leaf Scarf and pattern in her booth this weekend.
Hanging out with the Portland Spinnerati group. Always entertaining, and always inspiring!
I went to the group’s meet-up at the Oregon Historical Society for Worldwide Spin In Public Day last Saturday. I was the only drop spindler in a group of wheels, but it was all fun.
I’m also looking forward to shopping, and visiting the animals. For a much more comprehensive list of things to do at OFFF, see Mary Mooney’s post on the OregonLive Knitting blog. If you see me, say hello!
What’s on my needles? I’m almost done with my Snowy Woods Cowl that I’m doing for the knitalong. This is the last official week of the KAL, so there’s one more prize to be drawn next week. This week’s prize? Stitch markers, made by me. These feature leaves, snowflakes, and the blue of the custom dyed Snowy Woods colorway from Knitted Wit.
This cowl is coming with me to OFFF, where it will be part of my blocking class on Friday, 1 to 4 p.m. There’s still a little room in the class, and there’s no homework! Registration is onsite only at this point.
Are you going to OFFF, or another sheep and wool festival near you? Who’s going to Rhinebeck? (Someday, me…)
Can you buy a baby at Knitted Wit too? That baby is awful cute. If I was in the market for one, that’s the one I would choose. :::wink:::
Have fun at the festival. Take lots of pics of the animals. I need a sheepie fix.
That’s so funny; I didn’t even see Baby O in the picture! It’s from 2010. He’s still cute, but not as portable!
I will take lots of pictures!
Oh, Rhinebeck. Someday, me too. Unfortunately, it’s just far enough and just late enough in the season that taking the bike is impractical, but I’ll make a trip of it eventually.
I know two people from Portland who are going to Rhinebeck. I’m slightly jealous. But too busy to want to go this year!
