Coveted Yarn participated in the Fiber/Craft Day at the Rockport (MA) Community House last Saturday, Oct. 4. Rob and Laurel brought some of the yarn in their office. Here it is as displayed. The grand piano got put to good use, didn't it?
See all the yarn on the table by the window? Clearance yarn. The shoppers went crazy.
At this event, we had knitters, crocheters, spinners, needle felters, and a rug maker. You could shop, do your craft, or ask anyone to teach you their specialization. Leslie Wind (www.lesliewind.com), the shawl pin maker, held a class in simple wire working. There was a pot luck lunch with so much yummy food it was unbelievable. A great time was had by all, and we may not wait another year for the next one.

This week in Essex County we are enjoying the Topsfield Fair which is America's oldest agricultural fair, having started in 1818. The fair hosts a giant pumpkin contest, and this year's winner came in at 1, 464 pounds and was grown by Wesley Dwelly of Massachusetts. That's why I'm showing this color for the yarn of the week. Of course, you can see llamas at the fair and this leads us to the identity of the fiber of the week.
This week's 20% off fiber of the week is Baby Llama by Elsebeth Lavold. It's a big favorite in the Coveted Yarns family because it's so much fun just to pet the soft, soft yarn!
