Leaving soon . . .

I'll be leaving soon to head up to northern Wisconsin for my two craft shows this week. The first is the Musky Jamboree tomorrow in Boulder Junction and the second is the Paul Bunyan Festival in Eagle River on Wednesday. This is also a family visit as my Dad and Grandma also live up in this area. Since I don't know when I'll be online next (though I am hoping to use my laptop up there--WIFI at the library, so I'm told), I thought I would leave with some pictures of what I did this week:

And, a cat shot or two:

And, just a few more yarn shots from this past week:

The above two yarns are my first full skeins of Navajo 3-ply yarns! I finally did it! With much help from the tutorial on the Yarn Wench's site HERE. I can't wait to do more! The bright skein is BlueFacedLeicester wool and the bottom one is Falkland wool. Those black and pink yarns above are handdyed merino wool, also from the Yarn Wench, of course. I spun in some novelty yarns, lots of angelina, and plied one skein with black thread and the other with handdyed nylon novelty yarn (also dyed by the Yarn Wench.)

Okay, I think I've got to finish packing now!

Good luck!! Your yarn is beautiful and I just know you'll do well. Be sure to take a lot of pics while you are there so you can tell us all about it when you get back. Rooting for you!
