While searching for the autumn-themed crafts I knit a few years ago, I discovered I had just stuffed one pumpkin I knit with a big ball of yarn rather than finish it off properly. Somehow the pumpkin also had two holes!
A needle, yarn, and stuffing were found, and my rescue mission began...
Thankfully I was able to mend the holes, stuff the pumpkin, get it seamed and enjoy the process and result!
Unexpectedly, one September day on my doorstep, I found a wonderful box of gifts I had won from Camellia Fiber Co....a lovely card,
these beautiful mini skeins of yarn...
and this lovely handspun skein of yarn. Now my mind is dreaming of what I may make with the yarn...
The gifts helped me resist the temptation of buying more yarn at the Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival in Canby, Oregon, a bit south of where I live.
My youngest daughter took this photo of me with our dear friends we arranged to meet at the festival.
We saw many quiet llamas.
We saw many beautiful quiet bunnies.
We saw many interesting sheep, but some were not quiet so their barn was lively with sometimes startling "Baaaas!"
The exhibit of felted entries contained a unique felted journal someone who had visited Scotland had made.
On Thursday nights I am knitting a preemie blanket in a group of knitters I was invited to join. Wednesday mornings I am crocheting another preemie blanket, and I have a crocheted potholder project I carry around in the pocket of my purse to work on when I can. At the once a month art group I attend, the facilitator showed us a clever way to transfer a letter design we like onto art paper.
Have you launched into a new crafting season?
