New Hampshire Sheep and Wool

Julia here.  I made it to New Hampshire Sheep and Wool this past weekend, and saw some lovely things.

Lisa's (aka Tsock Tsarina) chorus line of fantastic socks in the Holiday Yarns booth. 

 

 

 

Drop spindlers devoted to vivid color

 

 

Temptations not limited to the fiber variety

Tribal badges and

 

familiar faces. (Claudia never makes it to New Hampshire because she's usually in recovery from Maryland, but this year, we got to see her instead!)

It was a lovely day, too hot for big wool sweaters, but perfect for enjoying the company of fellow knitters and considering yarn purchases.  Barb Parry was celebrating her new book, Teach Yourself Visually Hand Dyeing which I heartily recommend if you are at all interested in the subject. I hope to post a more explicit review of the book when I am finished giving it the once over, but like Deb Menz's inspirational book, Color in Spinning, I may never be done with it.

 

 

Thanks to everyone who said hi and grabbed a Twist Collective button from me.  It was a fun day.
