Before we went back to the festival, Nancy showed me her recently completed Rivendell Socks
Nancy, in her own inimitable fashion, finished knitting the neckline for this sweater in the hotel room and then wove (weaved?) in the ends in the car ride. That’s my girl! The pattern, Cable Lace Cardigan by Svetlana Avrakh, was featured in Vogue Knitting Spring/Summer 2004. She’s wearing one of her own shawl pin designs as a closure.
I found the best assortments of bag straps/handles at the Homestead Heirlooms booth
Awesome selection of colors, lengths, hardware, etc. I bought a handle for the Noni Adventure bag I knit last year. The bag took little time to knit, I just procrastinated big time over lining it and putting in a zipper. Then of course, the straps had me stopped short until finding this brown strap.
I did end up buying 2 oz balls of roving for needle felting. I found the roving a pattern for a needle felted clutch (from Interweave Felt) at the Timbre Ridge Farm booth
Purple fleece, couldn’t resist. It looks like cheese doodles though.
