Beautiful! I like the first one where she uses a different pattern to a point then continues on with the original.

Notice how nicely it works in a gradient yarn. And the pattern is free. Drat - if only I were going to Maryland this year! I guess I know what's first on my Rhinebeck wish list.

I know that some people can't tell who sent a groups.io message just from looking at it.  You might try clicking on reply or forward, and viewing the result.  As you can see below, my computer shows me the original sender: " Anna Morgan via Groups.Io wrote..".

Your mileage may vary, of course, but this may help some people.

Thank you SO much.  I went to the Fiber Farm Fair yesterday. The weather was questionable and nasty to drive in especially 2&1/2 hours that it took each way but I felt it was worth it!! 

I started out at the Fiber mill then went to the Cashmere Goat farm than the Alpaca farm.   I really enjoyed it despite the weather.

Knit day

Melanie Berti <rightseat@...>
 

Sharing for a friend of mine...

Members of the Hudson Valley Yarn Trail will be recognizing World Wide Knit Outside Day on June 8 in the Pawling Green from 1-7 pm. This is an outdoor event, weather permitting.

Also, this startup organization is looking for musicians to volunteer their time that day. They cannot pay but there’s electricity and they’d allow them to sell merch, play music and pass the hat. The organization expects an enthusiastic attendance of knitters and Pawling families that day. If you know someone who would be interested, please put them in touch with the organization.
