I have been very busy handpainting additional rovings for the S.California Handweavers' Guild fiber fest in Torrance this weekend. Here are some Blueface Leicester rovings that are drying.

And here are some rolled into balls, waiting to be labeled.

For information on the location, times and directions to the Torrance Cultural Center, you can visit the Southern California Handweavers' Guild website at: Hope to see lots of friends there.

With all of the fires going on around us and the air filled with heavy smoke this past week, I just couldn't go out so I managed to get a little spinning and knitting done. I spun two rovings of a merino/cashmere blend that I had handpainted. One is called "Sands of Utah" and the other is called "Calico Hills". I plied these together and here is the outcome:

I used this skein to knit a scarf called "Jyri". It is from a Berroco pattern magazine called the Norah Gaughan Collection Vol. 1. I loved this scarf because of the textures. The stitch is called the "mountain" pattern because of the hills and valleys. In reality, it is the back side of a lace pattern but looks oh, so, interesting.

Don't forget to mark your calendars for the fiber fest this weekend, Sunday, Nov. 4th, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
