It was a dreary, blustery, rainy day – so what better than surrounding oneself with wool?
I love the Knitter’s Frolic. It’s gotten bigger and bigger every year, and even aside from the awesome yarn and yarny stuff I love the opportunity to see the people! I know lots of knitters (as you might expect) and I just love that at the Frolic I tend to see people I know where ever I turn. I headed up with Jane and Cheryl for a few hours (thanks for the ride Cheryl!) and had lots of fun.
And! There were Milkweed Shawls a-plenty! I saw a few in booths, and some being worn, like these beautiful ones:
(Neither are sneaky photos, just so y’know!)
And of course, the yaaaarn.
Tanis’ beautiful Mulberry Silk:
I bought a bunch of books – although I’m regretting not buying more Japanese books! – and one sweater’s worth of yarn, a semi-solid Koigu in a shade of deep red that seems to be impossible to photograph.
I love yarn events! I already can’t wait till next year.
