So glad I went to the Party...

...the Handspun Yarn Party. This is what I won...and Shelby is coming by tomorrow night with a drop spindle to try and well teach me to spin! This GORGEOUS roving was donated by Loop on Etsy.

Here is what she is currently offering in her shop...

Another item they gave me...what the roving wasn't enough! I was thrilled...this bag is one of those PERFECT bags. It has a little space for everything!

And if you have never attended the Knit-Out put it on your list of Things To Do...this event like so many others is quintessentially Washington, DC. It is completely free, people volunteer their time to teach knitting, crocheting and spinning and then many of the results go to charity! It is outside on the the National Mall...so if you have to bring your SO or kids you can stick them in a museum (also free)...so they don't bug you.

My parents are always trying to get me to move back to NJ (where I grew up)...and well I aways ask "Why?" I love it here...it is not too cold BUT we get all four seasons...and well they are respectful of "I don't drive in snow" People get that here...up 'north' they want you to ski to work...LOL.

Anyway, on a final note my friend ShelbyB was at the craft show that day and I am SOO proud of her as she almost Sold Out of her wonderful yarn. Here is a peek of some yarns she has available...one thing Shelby is so awesome at is she can actually reliably reproduce her colorways. I guess that Chemistry degree comes in handy occasionally...LOL.

That is it for now...although I will tell you a secret...she has a HUGE announcement coming up on her blog.
