A Yarn Fest Kind of Day

Welcome Sign

Well, I’m a bit behind again. Today I was at the Interweave Yarn Fest.

One of the few photos of friends at the Yarn Fest. Toni, Brenda, Me and Marcy

Toni, Brenda, Me and Marcy

Got to see lots of crochet friends, though once again did a terrible job of getting photos of everyone. The picture above, with the lovely Interweave ladies: Toni Rexroat and Marcy Smith and my good friend Brenda Bourg, was one of the few that I managed to get. I also got to see briefly Lily Chin, Darla Fanton, Marly Bird, Robyn Chachula.

Pile of Silk Yarn

Also had to adopt some beautiful yarn. Lovely silks and silk blends from RedFish Dyeworks. I’m going to be creating something luscious in this gorgeous stuff for sure. I was also enabling Brenda and she ended up buying some of the silk lace, can’t wait to see what she comes up with using it.

After the classes were out I snagged my dear friend Mary Beth Temple and we went off to dinner. Kind of blew away an entire day playing, but it was an inspiring mental health day.

  1. Wow the colours of those yarns are just gorgeous! Can’t wait to see what you make with them. I would love it if someone could show me how to successfully unravel and use yarn that has been twisted like that, I get it terribly tangled each time I try… I’m obviously doing something very wrong.

    • Yes, the colors are even more amazing in person. You got me thinking, maybe I need to do a photo-tutorial on winding up hanks for use. Hmmmm.
