This weekend, I, my daughter and granddaughter will have a girls day outing. Our destination, The Flock and Fiber Festival in Canby, Oregon. A perfect late summer event that coincides with the onset of chilly weather and thoughts of warm sweaters and other hand spun woollies.
The mother daughter team of Meillleure Amie Handmades have been wisely using the last sunny days of the year sorting, washing, dyeing, carding and spinning some one of a kind yarn and hand knits. And I want it all! So hard to resist their creations but I manage some how.
You may remember my story about Mads and her bunny Daffodil. Mads with the help of Daffodil has expanded her source of luxurious Angora fiber and is now mistress to a whole passel of cuteness.
I think what I love so much about my daughter and granddaughter is their passion for creating beautiful hand spun that evokes love and warmth for the family. And with these two it is and always will be about family.
Unless there's socks. I must have socks!
