I have not fallen into the abyss. Thanks for asking. ;-)
I have been very busy hemming Roger's dress pants, cleaning the house, doing laundry, walking the dog, and spinning and knitting up a storm.
Oh, wait. I haven't done any of that. That is my To Do list. Drat!
What have I done? (drums fingers)
I made an iphone cozy for Roger. That was exciting. Not! (how badly did I just date myself?) Just a bit of fleece stitched together to make a pocket. I don't even have a photo of it.
Okay, the truth is that I've been helping my friend Brooke get ready for the fiber festival season. Her business, Sincere Sheep, was at Lambtown. I helped her pull together the product and then sell it on Saturday.
Sincere Sheep sources and processes all of its wool in Northern California. It is then dyed using natural dyes. The goal is to be local and as environmentally friendly as possible. Green and beautiful, how can you beat that?
More photos from Lambtown on my Flickr stream.
We had a good time despite the heat. Lambtown is in Dixon and very hot. The reported temperature on Saturday was 96. My fog-belt-grrl self is designed for 76, not 96. Fortunately, we were placed under a tree and had shade and a breeze all day.
I met lots of new people, including a couple of Ravelers, and saw some old friends from spinning groups gone by. It was wonderful.
Oh yeah, and Sally Fox. Sustainable, innovative, organic, and she farms with biodiesel. Be still my heart.
