Knit Fit!

Noriko HoComment

There was a small fiber festival this past weekend in Seattle called Knit Fit.  While there were some classes available, I did not partake.  Instead I perused the vendor hall.  There were a good number of amazing booths, and while I wish I could have supported everyone, my wallet did not agree with me.  :'o(  Even still, I feel like I got a lot of amazing things, and I'm very excited about it! 

Clockwise from top:  bright orange bag (Knit Fit bag that I won as a doorprize), green speckled yarn from Seattle Sky Dyeworks (worsted weight), purple needles are Signature DPNs in US 1.5 (my favorite size for my very first set of Signatures!), sunset colored roving is Targhee/Silk from Huckleberry Knits (this blend is a special blend that she asks the mill to make for her!), both the red ball and the cream colored skein are recycled cashmere, and lastly, the beauteous bag of minis from Three Fates Yarns (in my favorite color combo!!)!   Oh wait, how could I forget?

This gorgeous pendant was made by a local ceramics artist who also does buttons, yarn bowls, and other pieces of jewelry.  I fell in love with her work immediately.  I had about 5 of her pendants in my hands at one point, but in the end, this was the one that I narrowed it down to.  It makes me so happy, and I can see me getting some good use out of this necklace.  :o)

So, in the end, despite smaller than some fiber festivals, there were a ton of high quality vendors there, and I am actually relieved that it wasn't larger.  If it had been, I don't know what I would've done.  I already had to hold back on many many other gorgeous yarns, fibers, and other crafts!!
