I'm back! I swear I didn't forget about the blog. I got a little crazy prepping for Oregon Flock & Fiber last week and was gone all weekend at the event.
Lots of fun happened at the mill leading up to the festival, including success at the first yarn blend I dreamed up. My first 3-ply also and I am in love!!! And I'm not the only one. I took the skeins to OFFF and they were scooped up by a woman who said they were the first thing she had seen that day that she couldn't walk away from. Aaaaw! She made me so happy!
More is in the works this week, in fact October is "make yarn" month at the mill as I now start to prep for Vogue Knitting Live in Seattle. This is a big event for us in early November as we will be putting our yarn out there to the world at a big intimidating event. I'll be sure to keep you updated with pics and will put a few skeins up on the website with you all having first dibs - I'll let you know here on the blog first.
The festival was amazing! A fantastic turn out and the most perfect weather made for a truly fun event. Our booth turned out just as I had hped and we sold a lot of fiber and other goodies as well. I met some amazing people including vendors, shepherds and visitors alike. I didn't arrive back home on the farm until 8pm last night and my head was buzzing. The intention is to take the next few days off. The reality is, I have so many yarn ideas, I just want to back to work! My house does really need to be cleaned though. Hmmm...I'm sure I'll figure out something.
Thanks for following the Ewethful adventures. I'll be back soon!...
