One the Road, Week 2 Finger Lakes Fiber Fest

Join Stranded In Oz and Bitsyknits this weekend at the Finger Lakes Fiber Arts Festival in Hemlock, NY. This year, instead of the little booth in the back barn, B and I will be in our own tent in the field. Wish for sunny weather please.

New Lots

I'll be bringing with me some fresh lots of Luxury Merino 4, a low micron, super soft yarn -- luxury fibre with a rustic, homey spin to it. This yarn will be featured for my EC shawl kits. Supply is limited, as the mill has stopped milling this yarn, and yes, I just couldn't resist getting a nice big pile for the US. Colours include a new autumn red, a luscious blue blend, a new purple, and a killer dark green.

Thank you to the outstanding volunteers at the Garden State Sheep Breeders Show, as well as the awesome NJ/NY/PA knitters and spinners who came to the event. Rain threatened to ruin Sunday, but as 11:30 rolled by, the clouds rolled away.

Packing for Hemlock, NY (it's about 1hr sth of Rochester)
