ADVENTURES IN JUNIPERGRACELAND
7) On August 17 I got to go to FIBRATIONS the most lovely Victoria Fibre Festival.  I had a chance to work at Jane Richmond and Shannon Cook's booth and it was AMAZING FUN!

8) COMMENCE THE ENABLING!
      I picked up three skeins of this beautiful stuff!  1 Of the Shawl self-striping yarn in Concrete and Tulips, 1 shawl sized skein that stripes for socks in a one of a kind colourway, and 1 BFL sock in the skyline colourway.    
  ( Concrete and Tulips.... seriously)
  
 - SMITH AND EWE  from Kamloops I dove in and grabbed a variegated skein of beauty.


 - RAIN CITY KNITS  oh my goodness!  soooooooo pretty!   I picked up two sock skeins one in Graffiti colourway and the other in a beautiful neon peach! 



 ( I stole this picture from their Facebook page)

 - VEGAN YARN by the lovely lovely Heidi
    I picked up two skeins of her amazing Spica Fingering in the Safflower Pink and Iron and Myrobalan colourways. 


 (This is the entire haul from Fibrations)


9) Then I went to the Saanich Fair and found Country Wools and met the amazing Lorea Tomsin.  I couldn't resist her squishy, sheepy, plump yarn.


KNIT ALL THE THINGS

10)  Hooray!  I finished my EMERY designed by the beautiful Shannon Cook and knit with Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool.



11) Lollipop Yarn!  Hooray! I have the Flash Mob colourway.   I'm knitting some socks!   First time trying the afterthought heel... let's see how this goes. 

12) I scored some gorgeous FishKnits Canadiana sock yarn.   I sure do know what my next pair of socks will be!   
SUSAN B. ANDERSON AND I ARE YARN UNICORNS

13)  Candy Cane Linden Mittens for days.  Using the Felici self striping yarn from Knit picks.
      SPEAKING of Jane Richmond ...  I'm also knitting my 50th RAE out of Madeline Tosh Light in the Whisker colourway.

14) OH MY GOODNESS!  Quince and Company has new colours!!
