I grabbed the community newspaper out of the lobby in my building on the way home friday. I grabbed it because there was an interesting article on the front cover. There also happened to be a couple other interesting articles throughout the paper, including one on an up coming fibre festival called Fibrations.
The festival was today. I went about an hour into when it had started and I stayed for a couple hours.

There were a lot of great booths, and vendors, and people showing how to do things.
(this one woman was showing how to upcycle t-shirts to yarn, and she did it waaaaaaay better than any tutorial I have seen online)
I spent most of my time there following this one woman around though. She was teaching tunisian crochet. Once I learned how to do that, I think my brain exploded. Her name is Dela Wilkins. I met a lot of amazing people at the festival. A lot of ladies there -laugh-.
I also realized I need to use my Ravelry more. And the my social skills could use a little work.

Anyway, in honor of the fact that I was at a fibre festival, I decided to tag the tree that my bike was locked to for the duration of the festival.
You can see some of the vendors in the background.
I had so much fun!


  1. I think I just did a project with that same yarn! walmart?

  2. @commuknittea: You know, I am not sure. I would not be surprised, but it was a birthday gift, so I am not sure. Great yarn tho!

    Also, I am no longer sure if the majority of my comments are by spybots or humans...
