Shop Update Preview:
Just taking a really quick break from work to let you know that I’m getting a ton of yarn and fiber to put up in the shops, both here and on Etsy. I’m working on a new site store to work in conjunction with Etsy, which I think has some value in shopping online for beautiful things. Here’s a quick peek of some of the things which I will be posting at a later date. We are dealing with some family challenges presently, and I’m just ramping up to do great things this summer.
This week and next week include lots of organization and dye pots! We are getting ready to vendor a booth at the Spring Fair in Puyallup. Shepherds Extravaganza 2013, a part of the fair, has a fleece show, live animal displays, classes, and booths to purchase your favorite fiber goodness.
You can find more details here.
Not only will I be selling roving and yarn, but I will also be stalking the used equipment booth! I need some accessories for this beauty.
Please come and visit my family and I at the booth at the fair! We would love to have a chat, and I will likely be spinning up some fiber and taking in the sights. I may sneak off to buy some fleeces of my own, but I shouldn’t be away long. I’d love to say hello.
I hope that everyone is having a lovely new year. The weather is particularly chilly, but all the more reason to knit up something fabulous and toasty. I made these mittens for a special young lady.
The fiber is superwash BFL, hand dyed and hand spun, then knitted up into tidy little hand warmers. I hope that she wears them as well as she wears the rest of her colorful clothing.
There’s a mini Etsy shop update today, so stop over and take a look!
I’ve had some trouble with the shop, so I have gone to Etsy for sales for the present. Please feel free to shop here: Intrepid Otter on Etsy
One of the delights of fall is certainly the ‘fall festival’. Even better, how about a fall FIBER festival? A trip was made to the Oregon Flock and Fiber festival last Friday and Saturday, and it was incredible.
I took a couple of classes, camped overnight in the perfect weather, and had terrific fair food. I felt a little guilty about the lamb stew, but it was one of the most amazing things that I have ever consumed.
The barns full of sheep, goats, alpaca, and rabbits, the marketplace full of yarn and roving, not to mention lovely knitters and spinners, and the gorgeous fall weather made it an ideal weekend.
