This could be fun

Dupont Circle (Washington, DC) Fine Arts and Crafts Festival!
Saturday, October 22, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Church of the Pilgrims, 2201 P Street, NW
Fine Arts and Crafts, Church Tower Tours, Pet Adoption Day

I leave on a business trip on Sat. afternoon so I am going to miss the DC Knit Out & Crochet. This might be a fun alternative. And it's nearby. Here is a link to other knit out events around the country.

Knitting


I finished the Spiral Scarf and I love it! I didn't think it was going to do it for me - what a pleasant surprise. So now I am going to make one for myself. I have Homespun in a deep purply-red. I love this Coral Gables color but I can't wear orange or yellow.

So versatile. And it's not just for show. I was wearing it around the house on Sunday and it got really warm.

I just need to find longer circular needles. This is knitted the long way so there are only like 11 rows. But you keep increasing so you finish with 800 stitches on the needles. It got very crowded.

I am going to miss Knit Out too--maybe next year! Unfortunately I will also miss the Dupont festival, but I would love to see if you get any goodies there :)

Thank you for the comment on my blog. Your spiral scarf turned out great! I made one for myself a month or so ago using Rowan Calmer. Such and interesting pattern.
