SciFi Chris here and hello to all!
Last weekend, several of us 3RC folks went to the annual Pittsburgh Knit and Crochet festival. We took classes, taught classes, bought yarn and sold yarn. We also socialized, with each other and fellow yarn enthusiasts who had traveled from all over the area and nearby states.
The vendors hall is usually one of the first stops. It’s a huge room filled with temptation. By that I mean, of course, yarn and yarn accessories. I managed to restrain myself to only getting a few skeins each from some of my favorite vendors and a few skeins from some new favorites. I also picked up a new yarn swift.
After buying all that great yarn, who is going to wind it into balls? The nice folks at Hog Heaven will. Every year they run a winding station and the coat room to raise money for Hog Heaven, a rescue shelter for hoofed animals. It rescues, rehabilitates and fosters abused, neglected and unwanted hoofed animals. Check out their website for more info www.hogheavenrescue.org
