Bunnies, llamas, and a trunk show

I’m mostly recovered enough from the weekend to tell you about it now. Aside from being nearly as hot as the surface of the sun, it was pretty cool. On the way down I managed to snap a pic of the Nesquik Bunny by the side of the highway about 30 miles north of Indianapolis.

No, it’s not a great photo, since I took it through the windshield while we were moving, but all things considered, it’s not too bad. It’s a bunny! A huge bunny.

I met lots of really nice people at the show, sold lots of yarn, and traded some yarn for 21 pounds of llama fleece. Score! I love barter. I wish I could barter for everything. Instead of paying my mortgage, just mail some yarn to the bank each month. Trade yarn for groceries. That would be awesome. But I’m happy to have my 21 pounds of llama fleece. Thrilled, actually.

When we got home we emptied out the van and went to pick up a table and chairs I found on craigslist. Now I have a larger table so I have a place to do some nuno felting. (I’ll be putting the old table and chairs up for sale on craigslist in a few days. If anyone local is interested in a 48″ circular glass top table with an orangey red metal base and four matching bistro style chairs, let me know.) I have 12,583 ideas for felting swimming around in my head.

And I’m back to dyeing up a storm. I’ll be doing a trunk show Saturday, July 16 from noon to 6pm at Artisan Knitworks in St. Clair Shores, Michigan, which I’m really looking forward to. It’s a beautiful store full of wonderful things, owned by some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet, and I love spending time there. Definitely come if you’re able to.
