Weekend on the Peninsula

Sorry to have skipped out on the blog last week. Got back from my little adventure a bit later than planned and was really pooped.

The mini road trip took a friend and I across the Edmonds ferry to the Kitsap Peninsula- where we stopped in at The Artful Ewe, then checked out an area new to me- Chimacum.

Super cool little market at the intersection of Center Rd and Beaver Valley Rd. Great produce, a cool range of local products and a plant nursery as well!

In addition to some tasty treats I found some locally grown seeds for next year’s garden

We stayed at a little cottage by Discovery Bay- an interesting little place distinguished by it’s unique rock garden features

The view from the property is pretty amazing

The following day we made our way up to Port Angeles to visit the Pacific Northwest Fiber Arts Expo.

It was a beautiful day, and the event was lovely. Lots of interesting vendors- I had no idea so much fiber milling activity was going on out on the Olympic Peninsula!

Brought home a few select items from the expo-

That’s the Curiosity colorway from Jadawoo Designs, and some recycled sari silk from Siren of the Skeins.

Also picked up a bit of a sweet fleece from Taggartshire Farms

Just a short stay in Port Angeles- felt like there was a lot more to see in the area. Might have to start looking around for a good retreat place in the vicinity.

Back at home this week I’ve made some good progress on the Shepherd’s next vest-

Just finished the upper back today, so only the upper front (and arm and neckline edging) to go.

Think I might be cutting it kind of close with the yarn I have remaining, so I might have to spin up a bit more before it’s all said and done, but there is plenty of roving in reserve. So no worries there.

Have a great week folks!

      thanks Donna. I don’t often buy yarn, but something about the colorway just really called out to me. And it’s sock yarn, which is something I don’t really like to spin. It was a lot of fun. Nice to get out and about. Haven’t done a lot of that lately-
