Shop Happenings: North Idaho Fair Winners and Socktober

Summer is officially over, and we’re a week into Autumn.  It’s been a busy summer here, with no signs of slowing down on the horizon.

The North Idaho Fair

was the last week of August, and we had quite a few of our knitters enter projects.

It’s always fun to go look at all the beautiful knitted, crocheted, and handspun projects in the fiber division.  There are usually a couple spinners from the local spinning guild, the Log Cabin Spinners, demonstrating on their wheels and spindles as well.  We love supporting the fair and spreading the love of fiber arts far and wide.

This year we had quite a few winners.  Here are some of the winning entries.
