More Scenes from New England

Before  I get back into the Fiber Show, a few more scenes from the backroads of  New England:


Besides Rug Hooking there was lots of spinning and fiber:


Then I stopped by to see Kristen Nicholas who was exhibiting here because her sheep farm, Leyden Glen Farm, is in Franklin County.

     She was signing copies of her books and I bought  Kristin Knits
She has a Navajo-inspired afghan in this book that I would love to make -  she used her Julia yarn and the colors are fabulous! 

Gail Callahan, The Kangaroo Dyer, was there with her beautiful sock yarns and Heather Hall with a booth full of wonderful felted shawls, pins, and clothing. There were a number of booths displaying beautiful felted items and it inspired me to try more felting.  For a small county show,  I was impressed with the number and quality of the vendors there and the products they displayed.  I would definitely recommend  The Franklin County Fiber Twist, and you get to take a drive through the countryside of western Massachusetts  and enjoy the Fall colors!
