I just returned from the first Magnolia State Fiber Fest in Vicksburg, MS. Just realized I did not take a picture at the festival :(. It was held at the Lady Luck Casino Event Center--the room was so dark it was like being in a cave. The vendors all had to go out and purchase additional lighting for their booths. There were all sorts of fiber vendors--yarns, hand dyes, exotic fibers, patterns, soaps, and even a brick and mortar store. There were several booths devoted to spinning and had different wheels and looms. It was very interesting.
I took a class today with Laura Linneman. Toe up socks with the afterthought heel. I really enjoyed the class. Hope I can remember how to do the "Judy's Magic Cast on" next time I need to use it.
The would skein in the back has my little sample of toe up sock on it. You can't really tell what is going on with it.
I had a fun trip and would like to attend a fiber festival again some time.
