For The Weekend

Fall is a beautiful time in New England, and it's extra special for fiber enthusiasts.  There is a fiber event somewhere in the region almost every weekend.  We are definitely spoiled.

I would be remiss if I didn't mention the New Hampshire Wool Arts Tour, a Columbus Day weekend tradition.  Just as the name says it is a tour, a tour of various farms and studios.  This year there are six stops on the tour with several booths at each stop.  There are animals, demonstrations, goods for sale, yarn and fiber aplenty.  It's a beautiful time to be driving the back roads of New Hampshire.  The Tour is an inspiring celebration of the fiber arts community in New Hampshire.

Since I'm talking about events, if you happen to be in the area of WEBS on Saturday, they are having a trunk show for Knitting It Old School.  This book is the collaboration of Stitchy McYarnpants and Caro Sheridan and features vintage inspired patterns.  Sounds like fun.

In the spirit of the season I'm feeling compelled to make some crochet acorns and felted pumpkin bowls.  Go ahead and click on the link. There's a step-by-step tutorial.  Aren't they adorable?

My color inspiration for the week comes fresh from the orchard.

Apple red.

Enjoy the long holiday weekend, and Happy Thanksgiving to our neighbors to the north!
