Oregon Flock & Fiber Festival

So what am I doing posting about OFFF in May when the festival isn't until September? Well, I'll tell you! I am going to have a booth at OFFF this year! Even better than that I am going to share a double booth with Chrissy Gardiner of Gardiner Yarnworks! I couldn't be more excited! So I have been preparing as much as possible, starting with a few knitted samples:

I finished the felted clogs that I started with my class back in March. I think these will be duel purpose clogs. I made these for somebody for Christmas, but I think they will make an awesome display to show off my Worsted Wool yarn. The pattern is the Fibertrends Felted Clog pattern and these clogs took less than one skein of my Worsted Wool yarn in color Bad Girl and less than 2 skeins of Cascade 220 in color #9469 Hot Pink.

I also finished up my Mine, Don't Touch! socks, which I plan on wearing to OFFF. I would use them as displays, but they aren't the best representation of how the yarn looks. Also I think there might be some changes to my basic sock yarn base in the near future. So stay tuned for that!

Lastly I started a lace scarf out of my Alpaca Lace in color Sugarplum Fairy. It is a skein that I have been saving just for me and I think I have now found the perfect pattern for it! The pattern is the Snowdrop Lace Scarf by Donna Arney of Gardiner Yarnworks. It is just like knitting a cloud. I think it will make a perfect display for OFFF. I have some more pictures of it and some of my other projects up on Ravelry. I probably will be knitting all sorts of things with my own yarns for the next few months.

I also have lots of ideas and surprises that I am working on that I hope to share with everybody before September comes. Though if you have any ideas or things that you would like to see make sure to leave a comment. I am open to lots of ideas!

Congratulations on your booth! I wish I lived closer so I could see it in person.

I love your lace scarf. It definitely looks like a fluffy cloud!
