Prepping For Camp

FiberCamp Boston is this coming weekend, and I can hardly wait.  The weekend is hosted by Common Cod Fiber Guild and starts on Friday night with a talk by Pamela Wynne.  Saturday and Sunday are filled with a variety of sessions.  

FiberCamp is an unconference where the attendees set the agenda. Participants offer to give demos and workshops on various knitting and fiber related techniques and topics. For instance last year there was a workshop on making a dress form out of duct tape.  How cool is that?  The list of topics is always interesting.  Sometimes people offer to demonstrate something on the spur-of-the-moment so the conference is a very spontaneous, evolving event.

Dirty Water DyeWorks will be one of the vendors for the weekend.  I'm looking forward to hanging out and absorbing some of the creative energy that this event fosters.  If you're in the Boston area, be sure to check it out.

I've been doing a bit of dyeing to prepare for the weekend.

There will be several fresh Paula colorways and a new merino / silk blend that isn't on the website yet.  It's only Monday, but I'm already looking forward to weekend fun.
