Sock Dyeing at NoSo

Misty Moutain Farm's Linda gave a sock dyeing demo at NoSo. It was terrific!

12th Annual NoSo Knit, Saturday, Sept. 26

The NoSo Knit is a charity event hosted in Roanoke. It's a day of knitting, door prizes and meeting new people. NoSo supports Scarves of Hope, local shelters and the knitting program at Alderson Womens Prison in West Virginia.

It was a great day! My door prize included a set of Lantern Moon DPNs' from Stoney Mountain Fibers of Charlottesville and some beautiful roving with a spindle donated by Knitnana. Thank you both so much!

Here's the second, "naked" sock monkey. This one will be Briana's Christmas gift. I'm in the process of dressing her (preemie clothing) and once finished, I'll post a new photo.

For my fellow Haggis Heads (compliments of Knit Pro):

Lastly, but never least, Jim. After I loaded Linda's Country Fair spinning video, Blogspot wouldn't allow me to post any pictures. This is Linda's husband, Jim, in front of the Spirit of New London, a old fashioned river bateau. This gentleman moves big wooden boats down rivers, constructs "spinning sheds" so that his wife can have a place of her own to store all of her goodies and makes beautiful spinning wheels.

Would you agree he's fiber husband of the year???

Here's Linda (aka Barefoot Spinner) at Sedalia's Country Fair.
She, Dianne and I had a great afternoon knitting, eating and talking.
