FiberCamp Boston

FiberCamp Boston is just around the corner, March 11-13. FiberCamp, hosted by the Common Cod Fiber Guild, is an un-conference.  The topics for discussion and demonstration are determined by the attendees.  People attending FiberCamp offer to lead sessions on various fiber related topics.  It's been fun and interesting to watch the list of topics unfold on the website.  This is an excellent opportunity to connect with other fiber enthusiasts and to share your passion.

Kathy Elkins from WEBS will get the weekend rolling with a talk on Friday night.  Kathy recently interviewed Guido Stein, president of Common Cod, on her Ready, Set, Knit Podcast.  You can listen to the interview and find out more about this event here.

There will be a marketplace at FiberCamp, and I will be vending.  I'm looking forward to this free-form event and the creative energy it's sure to generate.  If you're in the Boston area, be sure to check out this weekend full of fiber fun.

On the needles . . . I've been making progress on my latest sock.

I don't feel I've had all that much knitting time, but I'm already past the gusset and making my way toward the toe.  Working on this sock has given me the mental space I needed to plan my next booth sample.

I haven't decided which pattern to use, but I've narrowed it down to two.  I do know I'll be using this yarn.

My weekend knitting.

Yesterday was a day for celebration here, and it provided me with my color inspiration for the week.  I hate to see winter end, but spring is coming, bringing changes in light and color.

Delicate white with fresh green.

Oh! I want to check out the vendors... do I still have to pay the admission fee $40 to get to the marketplace?

I guess if I had to... I can check out drop spinning...

I think you can join Common Cod on the spot for $25 and then pay the member rate of $25.00 to attend FiberCamp. It comes out a little bit more than $40 to attend FiberCamp but it's worth it. But you'll have the annual membership to Common Cod and can attend all their excellent Friday night presentations for free. Plus you get a 10% discount on yarn at several local yarn shops if you show your membership card.
