Couldn't have been more fun! Way over 100 ladies and a few men from
all over Washington, Idaho and Oregon.Many, many wheels, all types,
some of the new electric.
I like to pedal with my feet. I just got my new cardi finished in time to
wear it. Sewed the last button on the night before, while grabbing
it off the Woolie Board slightly damp. It was pretty warm but I had
to wear it anyway. I have my trusty double treadle Lendrum.

There were over 20 vendors selling mostly roving and wool of all colors.
This is such a fun place to take pictures with all the brilliance of hues.
A little 6 day old lamb named Elf came with his adopted mommy.
He still needs to eat every few hours and couldn't be left home.
He is a type of Southdown breed, Pelapay.
My friend Bonnie has on her maroon/ white sweater knit from
my very first original pattern. Came out super great!!!
This is Dave Yocom with his lovely wood bowl for knitters.
