Sorry I missed y’all last weekend.
I was back in Illinois visiting family and attending my 20 year high school reunion.
It was fun, and exhausting, and I’m awfully glad to be taking the rest of the week off to catchup with things around here.
Would you believe, it just so happened that here was a really great fiber event going on the very same weekend of my visit? Right near where I was staying??
Indeed. The Midwest Fiber and Folk Art Festival, in Crystal Lake, IL.
So of course I stopped by.
There were inside vendors-
And outside vendors-
Fabulous humongous skeins of yarn-
Hitchhiker travel wheels (which I got to try out!)
Wonderful hooked items-
And I did bring home a couple of souvenirs-
And, I did manage to get a bit of travel knitting done!
I really like how the Mountain Colors “Mountain Goat” yarn works with both the light and dark handspun. I forget the name of the colorway, as it’s been sitting for a while…they may not make that exact thing anymore.
Standard sock formula, with a little extra ribbing in the gusset, on tiny needles. Good for long plane rides. (and yes, it’s store-bought yarn. Didn’t plan far enough ahead on this one)
Ps. Boo Kitty came home last night. So far, so good!
