Today, we were headed south to Orange, VA (and not to build, can you believe it!!!) No, we had some serious plans for the Fall Fiber Festival. Yes, it was excruciatingly hot. Yes, VA is in a drought and we were covered in dust from head to toe within an hour of being there. Yes, I wore a tank top and the back of my neck got sunburned (in October, can you believe it?) Yes, the animals were exciting to see. And YES, we bought yummy yarns! Take a peek at our day:
I also found this lot of beauty. It's Worsted Weight Larkspur from Carodan Farms. Jas is making a very boring sweater with this yarn in a green colorway for her mom and was working on the seaming on the drive down. I couldn't resist the heathering shade in purple (look what you've done to me Stacey!) and at $6.95 per skein I couldn't go wrong! I'm thinking about trying it with Cherie Amour but I have my doubts. I'm thinking it may not want to be that sweater but another one that I just haven't stumbled upon yet. Prepare to drool purple lovers everywhere....
All in all, it was a happy day for the two knit-wit gals. Can't wait for the next fun-filled festival full of fiberlious fever!
I promise to post on the progress of all on-going projects later on this week.
10 days till my birthday!!!
