maa-a-a-asachusetts


(click top photo to go through stack)

Does it get any better than a spring Sunday country fiber fair? I wish I'd stopped blabbing long enough to show you the folks I was thrilled to meet in person: the uber talented Judy Jacobs, the as charming in person as he is aurally Guido Stein with his wife, Pumpkin - they shlepped their magnificent handknit wedding chuppah out of the car to show me, Patricia from Tidal Yarns who, it turns out, has the day job of cheesemaker at Beaver Brook Farm. (aka the indulgence I can not resist a local farm markets) . A field trip to visit her in action is already planned. And of course, also not shown, my partner in crime at the show, Botanical Shades dyer Jody MacKenzie aka Shear Spirit chapter 2 , along with her former associates at Tregellys Farm.

That photo of a woman happily clutching her yarn purchases? She's the infamous mitering sister. The one who said , when we finished that project;" OK, that's enough with the knitting for me now......" yeah. sure.

Haha. We all know that Linda was done for- even before the last word came out of her mouth.

Looks like you had fun.

See ya in a few.

Dang it, I knew I lived in the wrong part of the country for these things. I am way so jealous!

I was so bummed Saturday when I found out you were going to be there Sunday! but I finally got the book and love it. Smacking myself about not going back to pick up some of that hemp yarn. Came so close to doing the haul again on Sunday just for some - but that might have been considered slightly neurotic :)

"Out of Lamb Bits" is a very sad sign.
