The last yarn has been dyed in the 'outdoor' studio for the season. The temperatures have fallen, mornings bring a thin crust of ice on my water buckets, and frankly, it is just too chilly to stand in the unheated barn all day. I've been carrying the washed skeins to the house to dry on racks next to the woodstove for the past few weeks. It has been so rainy, nothing dries quickly on the lines. As much as I enjoy my barn dye studio, I'm ready to move indoors for the winter. The timing was perfect this year. All the yarn I planned to dye for the fall shows is finished, the last show this weekend.
The Fiber Festival of New England is held at the Big E in W. Springfield, MA. The entire festival is indoors and heated. What better for a rainy cold weekend. Come see us! Ball and Skein has booths 367,368 & 369 East. If you've been before, we're in the same location as past years.
Traveling back and forth, especially this time of year between shows, is exhausting. That goes for passengers, too.
