… otherwise known as a Friday catch-all post?
Whew! That’s a lot of links in one sentence, eh? Oh well… That’s what friends are for, right?
Speaking of friends… I stole the next couple of photos from Amy’s blog. I can’t blog about my Fall Fiber Festival adventure without mentioning Amy and Amanda. I can’t imagine doing a fiber festival without friends. It’s much more fun to ooh and ahhh with other knitters, spinners, etc. Honestly, I’ve learned a lot about fiber and fiber arts from “shopping” with friends of friends.
You know your friends are special people when you feel an instant connection with their friends…
That’s how I got to know Dianne too, through a mutual friend. I’m especially fond of this photo, because both of us have been on a “transformation journey” the last couple of years. Here’s a link to a photo we’re both in from two years ago…
We’re both in coats and layers, but between us, we’ve lost about 100 lbs. I’ll take that mass in any form of Dianne’s retail products. 😉
Speaking of which, the only loot I’m going to flash is in fact, from Creatively Dyed‘s booth. I did buy more, but since most of what I got will be leaving as gifts, I don’t want to spoil any surprises!
Aren’t those polymer buttons awesome?! Yes, Dianne is a passionate dog owner on top of everything else wonderful about her.
Creatively Dyed Sydney in the Steep colorway. It’s going to be another laceweight cardigan, if this red one I’m doing now doesn’t turn me off of them forever.
Oh – and the festival is “always” the first weekend in October. Mark your calendars for 2012 and I’ll see you there!
Before I wrap this up, happy birthday to my brother inlaw and Nichole!
What’s up for your weekend?
