Back from the KC Renaissance Faire. I have a sunburned face, a sore neck from 10 hours in a bus, a half-finished Christmas present knitted on said bus, and this nice skein of souvenir yarn:

I can’t imagine what I will make with it, since it is only 1.5 ounces, and such an eccentric texture that it probably won’t combine well with anything else. I may just swatch up a big rectangle and use it for something as it stands — mug rug, pouch, whatever the size suggests.

The Librarian crocheted a variegated cotton cap on the trip, the Tutor bought a skein of yarn made from recycled saris, and we passed around the new Interweave crochet pattern magazine.

Oh, yes, there was also a Renaissance Faire, with 84 adolescents. It was great and I will post pictures of it, and even write about it. But we must have our priorities straight.
