I went yesterday... and had a great time.

Now I just need 12 more hours of sleep...

I went up [livejournal.com profile] gblvr's house the night before, because she was driving and it was easier to go straight from her place than to circle around to my place and then go the festival. I wore my feather and fan stole, since I finished it Wednesday and the weather was a bit chilly out. But boy did I have at the festival (with pictures) )So now I'm taking the day off and going to be lazy lazy. I might order a pizza later, I'm feeling so lazy...
The current issue of Spin-Off had some delightful projects, including a crocheted yarn bag for knitters. Yesterday I bought some linen yarn to make a practice bag, with the idea of maybe making one out of the ingeo fiber I had also purchased, after I spin it.

However, the crochet pattern was written by a beginner, and it shows -- quite obviously. Crocheting in the round can be tricky enough, without bad directions added on top of it.

So I let the Spin-Off editors know...The letter I dashed off )

I'm going to rewrite the directions, because it is a cute little yarn bag, but there really isn't an excuse for such sloppy work from Interweave.

The Sheep and Wool Festival was a treat! 'A' and I got there at 9am and got all the errands done before 10am. At which point, we had lunch, to avoid the huge lines that form by noon.

[livejournal.com profile] twistedchick, her SU, [livejournal.com profile] sanj and [livejournal.com profile] ellen_fremedon arrived a bit before 11 am, and we broke into different groups to find our wanted items.

Basically, I had a blast, and spent too much money, which is what you do at this sort of thing. But I got *lots* of shiny things... )

All in all, I had a good (if expensive) day.
