Kern County Fair

Tomorrow, Wednesday, September 23rd, is the first day of the 2009 Kern County Fair.

Quite a few of our members have entered knitted items this year.

Next Tuesday evening, September 29th, a group of us will be in the Fine Arts Building from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. knitting. If you'd like to join us we'd love to see you, after all, the more the merrier.

I, for one, am waiting patiently to see who won ribbons!

September 19th Meetup/SIPDay

Tomorrow Saturday, September 19th, is our monthly Yarn Mavens meetup. We'll be at Harrington Park on Rio Bravo from 12 noon until about 4pm. Bring a potluck dish to contribute, your latest projects for show and tell, and if you spin, bring your work. Saturday is also Spin in Public Day. We'll sit below the leafy trees to talk and knit/crochet/spin all afternoon. There are picnic tables, but a folding chair is definitely recommended. Suzanne said she'll provide all the paper goods and some drinks.
Saturday will be my last event with this wonderful group, since next weekend the moving truck arrives. But I'll be around on Ravelry to chat. plus, I'll get my camera fixed so you can see my work too. I've learned so much from you all.

This Blogger is Moving

I'm moving to Temecula in two weeks. So I'm looking for a new blogger to take my place. Anyone interested? pm me on Rav or email me here if you're interested.

More Local Yarn Stores

So I found a way to acquire photos from our other lovely local yarn stores and have posted their links today.
I noticed that the Bead and Yarn studio has some spiffy new yarns and we all know that's the place to go for Cascade 220.
ABC's of Creative Pursuits is featuring some beautiful Giant Skeins from Hand Painted and lots of organic Lana Grossa Linea Pura.
If any of that interests you, you know how to find it. I'm so glad to include our LYS here on our blog. I know so many of us do our best to support our community and its businesses. Plus, being able to feel and squish the yarns has always been the best way to decide which yarns to use for our latest projects.
