Saturday Sky and Gretel
I’ve been wanting to try the new City Tweed by Knit Picks and thought Gretel would be the perfect project to test out this yarn. I would just hate to do an entire sweater and have it fuzz up or something. I’m just a little concerned that the alpaca is going to cause shedding. I won’t know till it gets more wear.
It’s been cool and threatening rain all day around here.
Yesterday the knitting gals and I went to the Midwest Fiber Festival. I had a new experience. I came home with nothing. I mean nada. I don’t know what it was, but I just didn’t see anything new. Since I didn’t need anything or see anything that really needed to come home with me, I just passed. There were a lot of vendors there, but many of them were not fiber related. Also, I’ve been thinking about it and I think maybe I’m not the intended market. This has more of an art show feel to it. I think I like the wool festivals better for the fleece shows. I can’t wait for Rhinebeck. I can smell the fleece already.
Also had a visit with Martini Knitter’s mom today and we headed out to see the new Harry Potter movie. We had a great time and I really enjoyed the movie.
