WIP & Event: Three little spinners go to the fair

This weekend G, B and I went to the fair to spend our day doing spinning demonstrations. What a delight, there was a bumper crop of attendees this year! Spent all day in the Bunny Barn talking to visitors, and watching the bunny judging. Then running around picking up my competition items.

I must apologize, I realized after I arrived at the fair my camera was at home, and my cellphone pictures where terrible. I hope that one of the others will post pictures that so I can link to them.

Presenting this years winners

I was spinning another Silver Cloud delight, some finger roving with a stripe of cream and a stripe of cinnamon. It spun like a dream! I will post pictures when I get further on in the spinning process.

Meanwhile an update on my Immie Blanket I have wanted to knit a frost flower patterned something for awhile. So without thinking things through, the bright little thing that I am, I started this thinking what a great thing to work on at Knittin club. Ha ha ha, pattern works both sides with repeats of 1/2 the pattern of 4 rows 3 times and the remaining 4 rows 3 times repeat 24 rows 3 times. Ya, I work on this when the guys are tucked up in their beds. However it is coming along and I am enjoying it.

Sorry it is a bit dark, but the flash removed the detail. I am rather happy with this.

This week I’m also back to knitting for the Bazaar. XL Coffee cup sweaters, if you are interested here is the free download. It is my own pattern, so feel free to share it around if you want.

A Coffee Cup Sweater, protects fingers and keeps cup warm, washable and a stash buster!

Well thanks for visiting again, as always a delight to see you. Please stop by and visit our friends at Tami’s Blog and enjoy their WIP’s

    That lace looks very impressive 🙂 I can barely manage to keep an old shale/feather and fan pattern straight with only 1 row in 4 being patterned, so a pattern on both sides seems crazy clever to me!
