We had a fabulous time at the Fiber Expo!!  There were so many nice people and fiber and animals and yarn.  It was a blast.  I came home with a few things:

I need fiber like a hole in the head, but it was on sale and it’s an alpaca/wool blend, I really just couldn’t say no.

Look what I made! I’ve had the pattern for a while but just haven’t gotten up the courage. It was a lot of fun! I want to make a lot more, especially for Christmas.

Then there is This:

It’s an osage orange. You can’t dye with it, ok you can dye with it but you get the pale yellow that you get out of anything, the bark or roots is what gives the orange color. But the orange has the most interesting smell, kinda oragany, but not really. I like it.
