As if the wedding a week ago wasn't enough, the days that followed included a variety of fiber events that place high on what would be my bucket list.
Tuesday, Eevi Emminger, founder of Mitts of Steal, and I went to the Beaverton Fresenius Clinic to deliver fingerless mitts to patients there.
Wednesday, new DIL and I went to Crafts Americana to visit the office of Knit Picks and Connecting Threads.
We left our campsite in Tualatin on Thursday, on our way to Sisters for the final big fiber event, the town's annual Quilt Show, held on Saturday.
I have a lot more to say about all three events, and more photos to show, so watch this spot in the next few weeks.
These weren't the only fiber activities, of course. I have been fitting in some spinning while camping, trying to participate in Tour de Fleece by spinning every day.
Today is a day of rest, so I'm knitting instead. I should have something to show next week.
We have also been taking lots of photos on our hikes with the pups. It's fun to explore a new part of the country. I'll tell about some of those, too.
For fans of Daphne, here's a shot of her wearing her Peapod Cardi.
All family members who traveled to Oregon are safely home. Happy one-week anniversary to Peter and Alexa!
What's on my needles:
Daphne's Bees' Knees cardigan from Mary Scott Huff's The New Stranded Colorwork.
Still working on DBIL's Aran cardigan, but waiting for a fitting. Ready to CO another pair of mitts for Mitts of Steal. It will be pair #13. Pair #11 was given away hot off the needles, so I have no photo, but another pair is having its ends woven in, so I should get a photo of that.
What's on my wheel:
Food coloring dyed wool roving from KP. Two bobbins done, and ready to start the third tomorrow.
What's in my hoop:
It's at home, but I'm assuming the languishing quilt is still in it. I need to get busy!
What's on my spindles:
Still the Ashford Mulberry on my Golding and the Louet Corriedale on my KP Turkish drop spindle, which has been going with me on hikes. I'm planning on trying out my new tiny supported spindle tomorrow, using some fiber left over from the Pacapoo hat.
What's on my iPad:
From the Nook app, I'm reading Scandal on Rincon Hill: A Sarah Woolson Mystery
by Shirley Tallman. From Audible, I have been listening to The Shelters of Stone
by Jean Auel, and DH and I have finished The Dead Town
by Dean Koontz, the last of the Frankenstein series. Very entertaining, all.
What's my app of the week:
Autoharp, for a little playing around the campfire, no tuning required!
What's in my wine glass:
Charles Shaw Shiraz, plentiful here in Oregon!
