It's a Grape Day in the Neighborhood...
Just so I don't have to find a home right now for my acquisitions, the indigo dyed wool is spun, the lime mohair/shetland blend and the brown shetland/mohair blend are both partially spun.
I finally decided to get a picker for myself; a box picker that should be coming in the mail this week. I will, of course, blog about it.
The skein & garment competition (which I coordinate) was as stunning as ever. Our members and area fiber artists are truly talented and it is a pleasure to get to see their entries every year!
I'm still debating on whether or not to go to Rhinebeck this year. I really don't need a thing, so it might be fun just to go rummaging about. The only problem is that the bus leaves very, very early (like 5 am and it's an hour's drive just to get to the bus).
Recently, we tried something new: giant puffball. They're OK, lightly mushroomy tasting and quite soft in texture. This is one of 3 that we found and is about 12 inches across and about 8 inches tall. Take it as you will, one way it's kind of heart-shaped and the other way is more of a full-moon shape.
