Fiber Trunk Show

Yesterday I had the pleasure of setting up a display and hanging out at Gather Here, an inviting fabric and yarn shop in Cambridge.

It was the Fiber Trunk Show, a first-time event for the shop.  Virginia, owner of Gather Here, knows how to put on an event.

I was in good company yesterday.

There was Adrian from KnittinK and Stacie from njstacie*made.

Shannon from The Spun Monkey Fiber Shoppe made the trek from Vermont with her fun wares, and Debbie from Tanuki Dyeworks was on hand with beautiful fiber.  The trunk show added a lot of color and activity to the bustling shop.  

I think there's something in the air at Gather Here.  The shop is all about creativity and fun.  Beware if you are there for any length of time.  Let's just say I made more than one trip to the fabric cutting table.  Thanks to Virginia and her friendly staff for a great afternoon!

Not that anyone noticed, but I was wearing a new pair of handknit socks yesterday.

Flatiron Clog Socks.  

I love this modified rib pattern.  It's stretchy and oh, so comfy.  

The yarn is Dirty Water DyeWorks Lucia, colorway Pixie.

Last week I vowed to work on these socks and only these socks until they were finished.

It's time for a new project.  Endless possibilities await.

Looks like it was a great event - sorry I slept through it all.

Awesome socks too - can't wait to see what is next!

It's too bad that I couldn't make it to the fiber trunk show but... I was at the Knitter's Review Retreat and your fabulous yarn was in our goodie bags!! Thanks again for the gorgeous yarn.
