I am going to be at the Iowa Sheep and Wool Festival this Saturday as a shopper, not a vendor. I'm a little sad we weren't able to vend there this year, but it opens up the opportunity to be at a festival and not have to stress about it. I'm getting really excited about it actually.
Saturday is the second annual International Yarn Bombing Day. I really want to participate by making a few quick things to sprinkle about on my way to Adel. They will most likely be crochet and small, but probably also bright and cheery.
After I get to the festival on Saturday morning, I'll be participating in World Wide Knit in Public Day with other people there. I've got a sparkly scarf about half done, so people will be able to see the pattern already, but there will still be enough to work while I'm there.
I'm also taking a class there on Saturday afternoon. My friend Diana from Sam's Icelandic Sheep Farm is teaching a hackle class. She is going to show us how to blend fibers together and then pull them into roving using the hackles. Very interesting, I'm really looking forward to it. She still has openings, so if you are in the area, come by and sign up. Her class is #112.
Also, don't forget, our first online craft show starts tomorrow. Please click and support handmade!
