We went to the Twist Fiber Festival 14:15

My plan was to take a lot of photos but the heat took over, so that did not happen.

I did get an awesome photo of one of the best local yarn dyers.

Here are Ashley RedSockBlueSock and Chantal Ctalknit who run RedSockBlueSockYarn

Devan bdevan of the Francofille Podcast and dyer behind Francofille Knits sent me a gorgeous skein of yarn called “Randonnee en Chaussettes” orange and greens which reminds me of the fall at Rhinebeck. When I saw it on IG the instigator I asked if she wanted to trade for a bag and she was game. Thanks again Devan and I love you podcast!!!
