Oakland Fiber Fest!

My friend Erin and I took a trip over the Bay Bridge to go to the Oakland Fiber Fest held this past Sunday in the Piedmont district. While it was a small-ish festival there were some amazing finds!

Girl on the Rocks

Girl on the Rocks Yarn

Not only do I love the name of her company but her hand dyed yarns are SO soft. 

And of course my other fav, Sincere Sheep! I got to meet Brooke who was so awesome and dedicated to her yarn!

Sincere Sheep!

We also made a stop at a Verb for Keeping Warm one of my favorite LYS in Oakland. All this fiber goodness made me realize that I must get over to Oakland more often!

I know we're technically in July but I had to share with you my June Project Spectrum FO!

I initially fell in love with this hat when I saw it on Olga via Knitandtonic! (See the interwebs doing it's inspiration thing again – LOVE!) I thought it would be the perfect slouchy hat to fit my luscious curly hair. I knitted the smallest size and did only 7 repeats of the pattern and think mine came out even slouchier than expected but I love it. Thank goodness too because we all know how it started out!! 

Wurm

The yarn (Sincere Sheep!) softened up a ton after washing. Dyed with indigo, it bleeds while you work with it. As this was my first project working with indigo you can only imagine my happiness when I learned from the dyer, Brooke Sinnes, that that was all supposed to happen!

Wurm

The yarn is a perfect green, with hints of blues… which technically is SO the PS July color – so there it does work! 😉

I'm still thinking of what my true blue project will be but in the meantime I have an Adiez that's blocking, a shawl that's being knit and a few other projects up my knitted sleeves!
