Mayfair and dye exchange

Lynne and I had a great time at Mayfair. The weather was great and the day couldn't have been better.
I have finally posted a picture of the hexagons I have been knitting out of the yarn from our dye exchange. I modified a coat pattern out of a knitting magazine. I don't know just exactly what it is going to grow up to be, but it will tell me before I am finished.
I have two back breaking weeks of work to do and then I am off for the summer. Woo Hoo!! I am planning to get in a lot of dying and knitting. Oh, and some grandmothering too. I will keep y'all posted if I can keep the procrastination bug out of my hair.

Sewanee's Mayfair

In case Pam hasn't told you, we're having a booth at Sewanee's Mayfair on May 12. That's a week from Saturday. We'll have fiber, handspun yarns, handdyed sock yarns and kid boucle. and some Janet Yost spindles. If any of you are itching for a mini fiber fair (and by mini I mean one awesome booth), come on by. Mayfair is held in Manigault Park on the campus of the University of the South in Sewanee, TN. Hours are 9:00 to 5:00 rain or shine. Pam and I are womanning the booth with our spinning wheels. It should be very fun. Mayfair is a general crafts fair with all kinds of cool local stuff like pottery, wrought iron, plants, quilts, woodwork, yard ornaments, and the like. It's a juried show so all items are quality, all items are local...within three or four county radius. If you are in the neighborhood, come look us up.
