Thirty pounds of yarn may sound like a lot, but, for us, its just a fraction of what we normally dye in a day. Luckily, this is all we needed to do this week, as I spent most of the day getting ready for the inaugural Friends of Fiber Celebration in La Veta, CO!
On Friday, we packed up a slew of our freshly dyed yarns and a armful of rugs, hooked up our little trailer and I headed to La Veta! Despite a few car problems, the yarn, rugs and I made it to this wonderful little town, safe and sound.On Saturday morning, after dropping the car off at the mechanics, I set up our little booth at the Friends of Fiber Celebration. It was a beautiful day and, for a first time festival, there was a good turnout. We are looking forward to doing this again next year… hopefully Teresa and Elsi can make it then, too!
P.S. We are thinking about doing some more fiber festivals in the future. Though the big festivals are fun, we love the old-school feel of smaller and new fiber gatherings. Is there anywhere you think we should go? Leave a comment to let us know! (The comment link is at the top of this post.)
