Getting Ready for Winterfest!

For most of our 20 years in Aberdeen, I've participated in Winterfest the weekend before Thanksgiving. Winterfest is a juried art show with fine art, folk art and crafts, sponsored by our Arts Council and Recreation and Cultural Center.

Today I took the an afternoon of vacation from work and started organizing yarns and finished projects to display and sell. Here are some samples:

Handspun yarn

Hand-Dyed Yarn

Bulky Knit Hats with Crocheted Flowers

Lyra Hat

Koigu Panta

Crocheted Scarves

And "scrap" scarves from yarn leftovers and samples.

Let's hope for good weather and lots of traffic at Winterfest!


  1. Your yarns are always so beautiful and your work is so creative. Great start on your new blog...I'm looking forward to much more!

  2. Dear Betty, A friend just forwarded a link to your site because of the cowl pattern. I read further and would like to know what yarn you used on the scarf in the center on the blue chair (pictured) and if a pattern is available. Thanks in advance for any information.

  3. Wow your yarn is beautiful! The color schemes and textures are just what I want to make. Do you have any tips on dyeing and spinning?(:
