I'm in the final stages of getting ready for SPA next weekend. All the dyeing I did over the last couple of weeks created piles and piles of skeins.
After the dyeing comes the labeling.
I spent an afternoon labeling skeins. Just when I thought I was finished, I found more skeins to label. It seemed I would never finish.
The job is done now except for a few odds and ends.
Two new colorways without names. They won't get labels until I name them.
Even though there's more work to be done, everything is coming together. I'm in the home stretch.
I've had an idea for one last booth sample so I took a few minutes yesterday to cast on.
This is the solid color version of Diamondback Mitts. This is a quick knit, so I'm confident I'll have it ready for next weekend.
All this weekend work didn't keep me from a field trip with a friend. It was the grand opening of a new shop in town.
Their logo says it all - sewing and yarn. Virginia and her crew have created a delightful space. You'll find some great pictures of the shop here. I especially love the drawers of buttons. They have a well-rounded selection of yarn and fabric, needles and notions, patterns and books. I'm delighted to have this shop in my backyard.
