Sundays are for Fiber Fun

This time the Capitol Hill Knitters of Doom got together for a stash swap.  This always creates the issue of what to take.  There’s plenty in my stash that I don’t need or will never use–but really does anyone else want it either?  It turns out no one else wanted my dark blue “muppet” yarn.  There’s enough for an adult sweater so I brought it back home to see if it wants to be anything yet.  All the rest of my offerings found happy homes.

I got some really lovely yarn and some shoes that were being given away too. Yes that’s right good food, good friends, yarn and shoes. 

All in all it was a great time. There were waffles and champagne:

It helps that some of our members sell yarn.  Valerie from Actual Size Creations brought some of her seconds.  All I can think is that if those were cast offs the “good stuff” is truly amazing.  I’ll be turning some of her sock yarn into pretty little things for summer.

But best of all there was knitting.

Knitting and laughter–what could be better?
