Knit it, Violet!
Finished objects, works in progress, and lots of rambling about two sticks and some string...

  So it's not Rhinebeck, but...
I always get jealous this time of year reading everyone's Rhinebeck posts and seeing all the gorgeous pictures. The yarn! The foliage! The fiber animals! The blog friends! Well, as a left coast girl, I make do with what I got. Weekend before last, Kellen and I made the nice drive down to Redway for our Natural Fiber Fair.
It was a goreous, rainy autumn weekend, I had a friend covering my shift at work, Kellen wore his cobblestone and got lots of compliments, and I got fiber! My spinning is still slow going, but I'm getting there (if I could quit my job and school, I'd have much more fiber time, but I digress). I got some gorgeous redwoods colored merino, some green romney (I think) wool to spin for Kellen, and beautiful blue and purple angora that I'm saving for when I become a more skilled spinner. It's a small festival (smaller than it has been in the past, too) but it was still really nice. Fun to see my knitting friends there, too. Afterwards, Kellen and I went to Garberville to get lunch and poke around my favorite art shops there. Now that I'm drowning in midterms, it's good to remember these nice autumn weekends. Have fun at Rhinebeck if you're going, I'll try not to be jealous. Afterall, I don't have it so bad. :)

Well glad you too a picture. I went once a few years ago but it was small, and I have too much fiber any how. Oh I met you at a stitch and bitch... and I know one of your friends, I can't remember her name but we have Graphic Design together. Glad you had fun.
