Gettin' this show on the Road

We're preparing for a road trip - and I've also included a sneak preview of a new Sock Hop colorway !

Well, yet another weekend was spent dyeing fiber like mad. We're heading out this week to a fabulous fiber show in Eugene Oregon: Black Sheep Gathering .
This is one great show, my friends. (yes, I'll take my camera along and get some photos I hope)
Not only do we get to see many of our friends from the south west coast, but there are lots of animals, classes, tons of vendors, and some fun "hanging out" time in the evenings. If you've never been to this fiber fair, you might want to check it out.

Between batches of dyeing, I spun some on a brand new colorway for Sock Hop: Midnight Hour. I couldn't resist plying a bit of it (you know that I need a road-trip project) Here's the results: (sorry about the blurry photo, I haven't quite figured out the macro on this digital camera yet.)
We are spinning and spinning as much as we can, and working on getting a big batch of yarn ready to sell on the website. Stay tuned.

In the meantime, if you're needing a "yarn fix", hop on over and check out this new line of sock yarns! It is Chasing Rainbows Dyeworks - and I love it. It knits up on size 3 needles, and is available in two different kinds one yarn; one is a blend of mohair/merino and the other is superwash. You'll only need one skein to knit an average pair of socks.
edit: if all the new Chasing Rainbows Sock Yarns do not show on your screen, please be sure to hit your "refresh" button.

We head out in a couple of days - and there's still much to do to prepare. Obviously, there's not much "sittin' around" going' on at Crown Mountain Farms !(grins)
Adios for about a week.

Have a great time at the show Teyani (and Klaus!). Other than my best wishes I have to say WAHHHH, I love the new colour and the new sock line - you're killing me! I am trying not to buy for a while but you make it very difficult when you put up porn like this!

You guys have a blast! Sell lots! Laugh lots! The new colorway is delicious -- lucky you already spun and plied it and I'm guessing you'll be casting on during the festival. Not fair!!!!

No moss collecting under your feet, eh?
Sounds like it should be GRAND!! I like that your purple yarn matches the flowers in the above pic - very cool.
Have a lovely and profitable trip.
