OFFF : Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival

I love going to this Festival.  I try to go every fall, but as anything, it depends what’s happening in our lives and our weekend.  But this time, it worked perfectly, once again.

It was a day to myself.  I was able to go see every table, once and twice and three times if I wanted to. No hurry to be done or to go onto something else.  Sometimes is good to have a day to oneself.  Homeschooling, it is not often I get to do that, nor is it something I crave often, but I took this day to just do that, be by myself and enjoy the sights and a beautiful afternoon.

And I bought something I really didn’t need, but have been wanting for quite some time.

So I bought this yarn bowl.  There were 3 stands with them.  Two with bowls made of ceramics, and I looked at them all.  Touched them, saw the glazes, the twirls and turns.  I even looked at the wooden ones…. oh wow… some day I will graduate to a wooden one, because I just love wood and the warmth and the natural feeling of it.

I loved all the colors, the textures, the shapes, so much goodness all in one place.  I’m ready to dig into my stash of wool and yarn, and continue with my spinning, and start knitting something warm for the cooler days.  Oh all the possibilities.  A day of inspiration.

    Wow! I am only an amateur knitter, but I would have LOVED that festival! Looks like you had a great time. Love the bowl–not sure I knew about the existence of knitting bowls!

      Hi Erin. Yes, it is a lovely festival. I try to go every year, to get inspired by all of it and I am glad I was able to go last weekend.
      And yes also! Those yarn bowls are super cute, and just a treat really. You can certainly knit without one 🙂 I have my entire life, no problems.
      But this one called me.
      Thanks for coming over! Have a wonderful week.
