More fun with fiber

"Lyle" was on hand at the Fiber Fest to get folks started on crocheting...or just to give her gentle support to those wanting to learn more of the craft.  Rachel is a very skilled knitter (she knit the sweater she's wearing)...but here she's trying out some crocheting skills under Lyle's guidance. 

And Mary was there, too, for those wanting instruction in crocheting.  This little 8 yr. old girl was learning to knit and crochet...and having a ball.

And you can't beat having vendors on the premises!!  LOVED looking at and purchasing some new yarns!  I couldn't resist.  Not many could.  I found some baby alpaca and also a wool/silk blend.  Both are soooo soft.  I think the wool/silk blend is going on the needles next.


  1. Great photos of the demos. I think people were eager to try new crafts and techniques.

  2. Rachels sweater is just awesome! I love it.

  3. That sounds like a really great event! Love Rachel's sweater.
