This past weekend, Pete, Maddie & I went up to Michigan for the weekend. We stayed up near Lake Michigan and Maddie had a blast walking along the beach! And several hours on Saturday were reserved for the Michigan Fiber Fest!
Pete & Maddie were very patient walking through all the booths with me, luckily Theresa showed up just as they had had enough and she & I browsed the last few booths as the rest of our families took in the show the herding dogs were putting on.
I didn't purchase too much, however that wasn't because of a lack of good things to see. Pete actually talked me into buying that yarn pictured up top. It's from Persimmon Tree Farm and it's a wool/mohair hand dyed "pot luck" yarn according to the label. I have plans to weave it into a scarf or shawl of some kind. I absolutley *love* the colors. This is about as close to perfect as I can imagine. All my favorite colors rolled into one colorway!
I also had to visit Alice from Foxhill Farm -- the Cormo woman! (No website, I'm afraid.) Orange was the color of the day, so I scooped up this 4 oz. bag of 90% cormo, 10% tussah. If you see Foxhill Farm at a fiber fest, get some of Alice's yarn or fiber! You'll be happy you did!
I also bought the last item I needed for my lace pal at the fest, so I can't show that here. And I have something coming in the mail -- pictures when it arrives!
Perhaps tomorrow I'll show you my finds from the antique shops and outlet mall!
