I'm not exactly sure how it ended up being October already. I can't remember a lovelier September. Kiddo and I played hooky a lot of afternoons and went swimming, which is usually not to be thought of after Labor Day, but when it hits 80 and you know that many months of dreary cloudy weather are looming, what else is a girl supposed to do?
And there was a fair bit of dyeing of course, because I was a vendor at Oregon Flock and Fiber. Love that show, and the weather was particularly perfect this year. I saw lots of friends and long-time customers, I got to spend a little time in the Willamette Valley, and this year I had the extra bonus of seeing my non-yarny (I know) friend Lisa, who recently moved to the area. Here are a couple of pics of my booth:
(Oops, pretend that you don't see all the clutter under the table.)
Speaking of OFFF, I saw Lorajean of Knitted Wit and met Brooke of Sincere Sheep there. Have you heard about their Among Friends club? They invited me to join them for their Best of the Northwest kit, along with Georgia of Yarn Pirate and designer Chrissy Gardiner. Gorgeous yarn inspired by the glorious Pacific Northwest, a beautiful pattern, and signature goodies from the region--this is going to be an awesome box. Signups close in less than two weeks, so order yours while you can.
In other cool news, my yarn will be featured in a couple of upcoming publications. The one I can tell you about is Needles and Artifice, which will be published (soon!) by Cooperative Press. You can visit the Ladies of Mischief blog for a sneak preview.
