Debbie and I went to the Montpelier Fiber Festival on Saturday and it was a success. Now, it was not Rhinebeck, but nothing even compares. This was a quaint and local opportunity to see hand knits and get a few things for the stash. See photos:
The weather was perfect. Nobody is interested in wool when it’s hot.
Angora bunnies for sale. I asked the person selling them if she gets sad to see them go. She said no. I’d be like “please don’t buy these. I love them.”
I love how this booth is set up by color way. Flying Goat Farm is very cool.
Note to self: go to Michaels and buy large vase to make this centerpiece.
These are called nesting balls for birds to get little pieces of fiber for their nests. I got one for Peggy. Also, we saw the bald eagle at Riverview the other night. Maybe it’s a sign.
Wolle’s Yarn Creations had such a beautiful booth. Congrats Elisabeth!
Another beautiful booth. Black Twig Farm.
Creepy cat yarn holder.
Knitted Items of Note:
And here I am with my goods: $75 flax wheel, $20 lamb trough for the Ganz in the car, $25 for 640 yards of sport weight alpaca for a cowl for Tess, and the $5 nesting ball.
The new life goal is the following: I’m going to branch out at least once per week to do a social thing that is not currently in my routine. Healthy Food Club at Whole Foods sounds interesting. It’s time for me to find my shed builder.
