This coming weekend I will once again be a vendor at Fiber Christmas in July in Kellyville, Oklahoma. This will be our third year to participate. Kate Lowder, of Lowder Colour Farms, puts on a fantastic show each year, and it draws quite the crowd of fiber folk from all over the place. I am very excited this year because we will have all new display pieces for our booth. Stan and I have been working hard building and painting, and the kids have pitched in and helped, too.
I have more roving and yarn to take to the show than ever before - over 80 rovings and 40+ handspun yarns. I was disappointed with my booth last year, it looked very empty and sad in my opinion, so this year I am making sure it is full to the max!
I have been cranking along on the sock machine, too! It is a blast to play with! On my 5th attempt, I finally turned out a perfect sock. Woo-Hoo! I plan to take the little beast with me to the show for others to play with.
I am really proud of this machine. I bought it back before Christmas off of ebay. It was a dirty, grimey mess. I spent hours cleaning off the years of grease and grime, and was well rewarded for my efforts. It even had an amazing coat of paint under it all!
