Another yarn story
Central New York Fiber Fair in Bouckville. (Hi, Theresa! It was so nice to meet you!) This fair is still pretty new, but it is so good and Central New York is so absolutely stunning that I am confident that one day knitters from all over the world will gather in June, wearing their Bouckville sweaters (this is New York. You might still need a sweater in June) and I will have to wait in a really long line for an artichoke french. I probably could have bought something from every booth. Doc was with me, though, and helped me keep a lid on it. By the way, Doc is how you will probably recognize me in the wild--his fiercely handsome and kilted self attracted so much attention, whoo! After the alpacas, he was the most photographed thing at the fair, I think. One lady paused to admire his calves. A little girl wanted to give him a hug. Everybody was so interested in him, and I was pretty much free to load up on purchases while he was otherwise engaged. Genius! The first of my loot, this hand-dyed braid of SW Blue Faced Leicester from Llady Llama Fiber Co. in the colorway "Godric's Sword" was the first thing to hit my wheel. Isn't it yummy? Wool! Harry Potter! Let's make some yarn!
