|The 2012 BSG T-Shirt - Pretty cute, huh?|
The pattern I'm crocheting for this scarf is called Mosaic Scarf's little sister. I was afraid that I wouldn't have enough yarn, but I finished with just a few yards left - whew...
Here is The Shepherd with NW Shetland breeders Jackie Craw Forest Mountain Sheep, Chelan, WA, Donna Schoonover, Schoonover Farms, Sedro Woolley, WA and Michelle McMillen, Boulderneigh Farm, Amity Oregon.
They were in a serious discussion about some wool samples that The Shepherd had brought with him.
|Fiber Arts Judging|
She seemed to be pretty good at her judging - listening to her talk definitely gave me things to remember the next time I prepare yarn for competition.
Knees rested, I pressed on through the last vendor barn - No, I didn't buy any of this yarn, but isn't it pretty?
And look who I found? Marcia Adams, who used to shear our sheep. She sells her Coopworth wool roving at festivals now and had landed this prime indoor spot at the last minute when someone else had to cancel.
Yarn and fiber in all kinds of rainbow colors.
|A delight for the senses|
Late June in Eugene, more often than not, is in the 80's - 90's - this year not so much. In fact, I don't think it got much into the 70's - I felt bad for the outdoor vendors- all the tents on the far right on this picture - but, they take their chances and if it is hot out, they definitely have a better deal than in the stifling hot of the barns -
So Friday, the rains came -
In a day or two I'll tell you about Saturday's events - the Fleece Judging and the Spinner's Lead.
Enjoy the sights and sounds of the judging ring -
