...still traveling

I'm away from the studio
traveling and visiting family.
I'll leave you with one of
my favorite autumn treats...

pumpkin ice-cream from Amy's Ice Creams

I'll be back soon!

Strikkefestival Fanø, 2013

A few weeks ago, I made mention that I went to a wool and knitting festival in Denmark.  Here's what I saw...

Hand-knit decorations
the shelter at the ferry

Fields of lavender

 Lots of yarn, knitting, accessories, and woolly goodness

Lovely flat beaches (where cars drive through!) with intense high and low-tides

The island is a beautiful place with a sweeping coastline populated by sandy dunes, and the inland crisscrossed by pristine cycle pathways and super-charming thatch-roofed houses.

And, I did manage to bring back some lovelies.  I couldn't help myself.

Donegal yarn with cashmere

Blown-plied alpaca that's so soft and airy

Experimental big-cotton

The festival itself was a nice way to connect to the local style and see what designers are doing.  It seems like the local style focuses on stranded colorwork and tweeds which was up my alley!
