feeling revived!

Work and life have kept us hopping lately, so by Friday night, I was feeling a little run-down. How convenient that the very next day was the Fiber Revival! We hadn't made any specific plans because we just didn't know if we could swing it, but by Friday night, I felt like it was exactly what I needed and it was going to be too good to miss.
So, bright and early, off Leah and I went to spend the day in the shade of huge trees on a living history farm museum, chatting with knitters, crocheters, spinners, weavers. And hey! There's our friend Leslie Wind, with whom we'll be sharing a booth at the Franklin County Fiber Twist next month!
Here's Alasdair chatting to Julia about his beautiful double knit scarf, which Leah found especially interesting because she had just bought a skein of Kauni yarn in the rainbow colorway, while Guido (microbrew smackdown challenge, on!) drools over some roving.

Is this not stunningly gorgeous? Alasdair does some incredible work.

Leah must've counted the stitches on that sleeve four times. It's difficult to concentrate when there are fun conversations going on all around you, fibery distractions, and lots of laughing.

Thanks to the Fiber Revival, I do indeed feel revived, energized, inspired. Yahoo!

Love everyone crowded under the shade of the tree!

I've never seen anything so detailed as that piece that Alistair did. Oh my.
