I had a few things on my mind for this festival... especially the cashmere goat show. I happened upon the end of it a couple of years ago and missed it completely last year. I could not find the schedule of events, so I missed it again this year. :-/ But I did spy a few of them snoozing.
I was also looking for some specific yarn for a specific project. I didn't find it, but I did find this...
|wool + silk + viscose|
I think it will turn into something wonderful. :-)
I also found some special roving for the Tour de Fleece.
|cashmere + silk|
|camel + merino|
I will be spinning with the Team of Wonder again. :-) Of course, I just realized that most of the rovings are very nearly the same color... lol.
The High Park Wildfire started that day, which I wrote about here. So it was difficult to relax and spend time enjoying Estes Park, as I typically do when I'm there.
As of about 6:30 last night the fire looked like this from our place....
I think this photo is optimistic. The fire is estimated at 52,000 acres (larger than the cities of Fort Collins and Loveland combined) and about 15% contained. At the time I was taking this photo, the fire was racing to the north and had crossed the Poudre River. That being said, last night was the best air quality we've had in nearly a week.
I am pleased to note that our Governor issued a state-wide ban on all open fires and private fireworks yesterday.
I hope you are enjoying your Fiber Arts Friday. Please join us over at Wisdom Begins in Wonder. There's always a lot to see. :-)
