I would like to say "Thank You" to everyone who stopped by my booth at Michgian Fiber Festival to chat and support me on my fiber journey. Words cannot express my thanks to Linda and Kelly (Your Local Yarn Shop) for all their help.......I am so blessed to have so many amazing friends. I know...sappy, sappy but sooooo true!
Then I was able to attend Stitches for the first time. What an experience that was!!!! I must admit it was a little overwhelming so my only purchase was 4 oz of roving and some fun little scissors from HiyaHiya called Puppy Snips.
Over Labor Day weekend we were off to Lama Fest at MSU for a weekend of camping and vending. What a hot, hot weekend that turned out to be. Jim and I had a good time getting caught up with friends we havn't seen since last years show.
So...I don't have to much to share in the way of fiber goodness. I did spin during Lama Fest and managed to get two bobbins filled and plied after getting home.
This is a blend of Suri/Merino in natural colors of white and fawn.
KellyJ asked if I would make a sample of a pattern she designed for Kalamazoo Knits called The Anne Shoulder Wrap for a new photo shoot. For the bottom and shoulder shaping she had me use one strand of ShiBuiKnits 100% alpaca DK with a strand of Giada trends. The Giada has lovely little sequins throughout which adds a nice sparkly touch. The main part of the body was done using 2 strands of the ShiBui. I just love the way it turned out and the orange color is stunning.
Happy Fiber Arts Friday!!
