What a Whirlwind!
We had a tornado warning in the middle of the Olde Liberty Fibre Faire yesterday. The big tent outside was taken down, the outdoor vendors left early, it was pretty scary sitting in the floor for awhile (we were inside). At the last minute, apparently, the tornado veered off away from the faire site. Whew.
Another thing that happened was that it was so busy, I almost forgot to take a photo of the booth, so when I remembered, there were customers in the booth:
And I didn't get the best photo in the world, but two of my helpers were in there at the time...Dear Daughter and Dear Niece, being novice knitters, were off learning all they could about fine yarns...
Like this tremendous (500 yards!) of Crazy4Dying Squishy sock yarn in the colorway Velvet that I bought (it will be a shawl, I don't know which one, yet). Aren't the colors gorgeous?
And Jane McKinney of Spring Gate Farm was right next door to my booth and had the most luscious cashmere...
Yes, that's the one that came home with me (it's going to be a lacey cowl for next winter).
And it probably comes as no surprise that The Tonk loves goat?
I luves goat, Mommie
Today, the little guy, who'd begun to look quite chunky and shaggy, learned that getting brushed feels wonderful...in fact, it feels so wonderful I thought he'd eat the brush. I haven't had a kitty love brushing so much in many many years...
Me hads me hair done
Me looks spiffy
Mommie, do you think looking this good will impress Mz Lucy?
Me'd love to love Mz Lucy
Make sure you tell Mz Lucy I haz good taste?
Hmm...Tonk are you sure YOU have good taste, or that cashmere tastes good?
Oh, BOTH, Mommie
