I have a yarn to tell –

Like all knitters I get e-mails from different sources to feed my knitting addiction! Then, of course, one click leads to another and another. Even though I have been knitting for 40+ years it still amazes me that I am never bored as there is new designers, books or podcasts to enjoy. There is so much to explore and learn with this art! Don’t tell anyone please but I am very addicted to podcasts! I will take the risk of sharing these wonderful venues off and on while I blog.

This past Sunday was the SAFONA’s 6th Annual Fiber Arts Festival, New Holland, PA., Lancaster County in Amish area of Pennsylvania. SAFONA stands for “Small Alpaca Farms of The Northeast Association”. This being their 6th year for this affair it was actually my first. I should have taken pictures as there were several who were spinning and it was fun to see! I arrived home and was sad I had no pictures to share of roving being spun into yarn! They were so informative and had a lot to share with me about their art! I did post a picture of some cute alpacas for those of you who are not familiar with them.

And, I had lunch there too as I could not resist the infamous chicken corn soup!

It was so windy and terribly cold so the hot soup really was warmth right to the soul!

I did make a purchase of very pretty fingering weight hand dyed yarn in grape colorway and I want to knit with it first before I review this yarn and share the studio which is only fair! It’s intended use is a knit slouchy hat for daughter.

Stay safe and have the very best Thanksgiving Holiday !

Knittingly,
Carole
