What a Knotty day

Today is a day for two wonderful things.

Most of the day is reserved for fibre and fun at the Knotty by Nature grand opening. I'll be there for a good chunk of the day, though I might end up taking a nap in the fibre if I start feeling overwhelmed. I'll also be demonstrating the Walking Wheel. This thing is massive, it's bigger than me and weighs about the same. I think it's the most exciting way to make yarn and I can't wait to show it to you.

There are other exciting things to see. I know that my mentor OB1 will be demonstrating something too. I swiped the schedule from a thread on Ravelry:

So, if you are in Victoria, come and say hello. It's going to be great.

Afterwards, it's dinner with friends and watching the Christmas Lights Truck Parade by something called the ieoa. Yeah, I don't understand it either, but it sure is fun to watch.

Oh - I wish that I could have been there! Glad to see that Ryan was doing a Saori weaving demo.

But, I had fun here on Salt Spring Island - taking my visiting family to all of the craft sales...

Happy Weaving & Spinning,

I hope you had a wonderful time at Knotty by Nature today, and didn't come back too tired from all the fun.
That truck parade must be something to be seen! My nephews and my niece, truck lovers that they are (yeah, even the almost two years old little girl!), would *love* it! And I would love watching them enjoying it.

Thanks so much for spinning! You forgot to take home the lovely yarn that you spun!
