Farms, Fiber n' Fotos

Lurking inside this city gal is an Inner Fiber Farmer. I adore reading blogs about sheep, llamas, alpacas and I positively swoon during lambing season.

So it's no surprise that I eagerly awaited the publication of Shear Spirit. Written by Joan Tapper and photographed by Gale Zucker, this book profiles and shows photos from ten fiber farms. Patterns that showcase the yarns are also in the book.

It's a gorgeous book where I can totally dream about my parallel universe Fiber Farm life.

Monday, my favorite LYS had a very special event:

Gale Zucker--the extraordinary photographer of Shear Spirit:



AND

Nanney Kennedy of Meadowcroft Farms--one of the farms profiled in the book.



Look at her luscious yarns:





A Knitting Diva was there and working on the Lace Ribbon Scarf



Did any of Nanney's yarn follow me home? But, of course!

I *knew* that you were fibbing when you said you were about to leave the store yesterday! ;o)
Great colors that followed you home - I guess the cotton stayed at the store?

What fun! No wonder you couldn't resist that yarn. It looks like spring.

I love the pastel yarns. Sounds like a great book! Enjoy.
