Don’t Quit Your Day Job

But the weekend job is pretty awesome!  I get to spin all day.

And wear funny clothes.  I’m working weekends this summer at a charming little fiber arts booth at the Colorado Renaissance Festival.

This is Raven End.

Pardon the mess.  This was on one of our cleaning days before the festival opened.

Inside the booth, we have all manner of fibery goodness.

Including some of my yarn.

If you’re at the festival, stop in and say hi.  We have shade, places to sit, and soft things to pet.  We’ll even let you make a rope – what you do with it after is your business.


Catch Up

Last weekend (What happened to this past week?  I have absolutely no idea.) NurseK, her friend M, and I said “Hey, let’s go hiking!  In the cold!  And the rain!  Preferably in a place that’s flooding!”  Ok, so maybe it didn’t go exactly like that, but we did manage to find ourselves in the mountains on an unseasonably cold and rainy Sunday.  We spent the morning hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park.

After a picnic lunch, we headed back into town for the Estes Park Wool Market where we saw many cute critters.

There was also a lot of gorgeous fibery goodness – some of which made its way home with me.

That’s two Fabulous Fibers rovings from Susan’s Fiber Shop – Blue Faced Leicester in Cabbage Rose and Merino in Circus Parade.

Dinner at Dushanbe topped off an all around lovely day.
