Santa Monica Fiber Festival 1st knotty Knitter Road Trip;)






I took 2 travel pillows and a camping fold up chair which Mindy and her Daughter Hannah and Jo took turns carrying incase I needed to sit down since it has been just 3 weeks since my surgeries we had such a good time and all spent to much money on yarn and knitting stuff;) Mindy tried out spinning wheels and Hannah fell in love with the Angora Bunnies and I got to pet a chinchilla and Jo bought 7 skeins of prism ribbon yarn to make a sweater and got a great deal on it and I got sparkly yarns for making scarves a glass button to put on a felted bag knitting magnet and ornament and a red/white/blue ornament and notions and a yarn meditation cd with music to listen to while I knit that has keyboard harp and flute in it. also posting pictures click on pictures to see a closer up pic of details.Mindy bought yummy speckled fiber to make into yarn.What a fun Day!!

Darcy - I'm so glad you're able to get out for a little bit. It's good to see you are recovering.

Yarn meditations? Hmm, something a yarn addict MUST have, LOL. Do you like the music? The blue button looks lovely, are those ladybugs at the bottom buttons too?

The music is instrumental keyboard flute and harp very soothing for listening to while knitting;)The glass button was a splurge as it was costly will put it on a booga bag some day Iam planning to knit up for myself down the road.lol
The lady bugs are glass beads Iam planning on making earrings out of them for Dolores;)you can get a music cd at this site www.goshyarnit.com
