Whether they are bright like these skeins from Little Gidding Farm Suri Alpacas
or muted like these skeins of Briar Rose Fibers.
Saturday's Minnesota Knitters' Guild's Yarnover was entirely satisfying. I got to help some teachers as a "Teacher Angel", learn how to make the better buttonhole and sew on zippers using a rug hook. I really spent the most amount of my time simply visiting, knitting and people watching.
There was a little bit of purchasing as well.
|This pattern is also available from the Ewetopia Fiber Online Shop|
I bought this lovely top down cardigan pattern and five skeins of naturally brown worsted weight from Ewetopia Fiber Shop. This was a really nice vendor at Yarnover and I'm looking forward to seeing what they are bringing to Shepherd's Harvest. I'm not taking any classes but I am working at the MKG Knitting Help table on Saturday morning.
I also bought these wonderful antique buttons for the sweater . . .
GFMelissa said that I was being surprisingly original because none of the buttons match each other. I was really just trying to not give myself a reason to jump into the project!
Looking ahead, next weekend is once again the perfect storm of Spring Formal/Friends School Plant Sale/Shepherd's Harvest . . . oh, what the heck.
Be there or Be Square!
This week's Saturday Seven was really more of a Sunday Seven. I was cleaning out the CD drawer - putting lost cds away in their cases and I managed to clean out seven less than favorite cds. Off to the rummage sale!
