Getting back to the Oregon trip -- BSG was absolutely so much fun. I shared a vendor booth with Sandy Sitzman (Woolgatherings of Banks, OR). In addition to our handpainted fibers and yarns, we also had the beautiful hand-dyed rovings and yarns of Lynne Vogel, who wasn't able to make it. She was truly missed, but we did have a copy of her new Twisted Sisters Knit Sweater Book available in our booth for customers to peruse.
After the book signing, Karen and I began our trek south towards home, spending the night in Cottage Grove, just south of Eugene. The next day, we ended up doing a marathon driving trip and (17 hours later) arrived home in the wee hours of Thursday morning, totally beat up but happy to be home. I think we were both muttering to ourselves by that time, "I think we're too old to do that again." The Grapevine at midnight, when you're dead tired, is . . . well . . . I won't go there.
Oh, finally, here's a skein of yarn I spun from one of Sandy's "superwash" merino/tencel rovings. I was just steadfast in my steering clear of superwash merino, for no good reason in particular, but I have to admit I really enjoyed spinning Sandy's roving, especially because the colors were so lovely. Okay, okay, Sandy, I'm a convert. So, I did it! I'm back in blogger land.
