Okay, on a more positive note, I went to the Craft Show tonight, which took place here:
the Bainbridge Art Center. It's in a sorta scary neighborhood in south Richmond, (back in my rescue squad days, we always dreaded the calls in this neighborhood -- they usually involved bullet wounds).
Check out the odd sculpture out front:
Anyway, it was a very small show and a light turnout, and not much there interested me, but I did buy some Sari silk yarn from Baa Baa yarn:
I came home and wound it into a ball -- (by hand - I have no swift or ball winder, yet) -- the process of which turned out to be a bear. "Lots of slubs" she advertises -- no kidding! I had to cut some out, they were so big. No idea what I'll make with this. I know there's a purse pattern in a previous issue of Knitty, but not sure I want to make a purse. She only had one hank for sale and it's about 65 yards, so not sure it's enough to do anything more than a scarf on really big needles. No hurry on a decision -- I've got plenty of other things to work on.
Tomorrow is pretty busy so probably no blog post again until Sunday, when I'll update you on latest yarn crawl, stash-enhancement acquisitions, knitting project progress, my dad's birthday, and tomorrow's charity Knit-In. Whew!
