Bits and pieces

For those of you who are interested in what my Kauni sweater will look like, take a look at Wendy Johnson's Lismore sweater. See why I fell in love with this yarn?

The Yarn Harlot is coming to Portland the 22nd and the PDX Knitbloggers plan to have a presence there. They were born from the Harlot's visit last year so there are several in the group who want to make the event a celebratory one. So if you see a bunch of crazy women wearing pins, that'll be us, though I won't be waving a pompom. Blue Moon Fiber Arts is having a scavenger hunt like the one done in Toronto. I don't know how many of the group will be doing the hunt -- I won't have time to do it -- but it does give a good slice of Portland for Stephanie to view. I may just do a few pics while I'm out and about for the Aurora Colony Handspinners Guild's annual Fiber Faire. If nothing else, my traveling sock will have breakfast at the Hollywood Burger Bar.

My projects lately have been working on the Raspberry Frappe fiber and knitting up face cloths for a gift basket we'll be auctioning off at Confluence Chorus's annual Cabaret on April 26th. We got a warm weekend of sunshine that gave everyone a boost. It was nice on Friday evening after a busy week to pull out the Louet and spin until dusk.
