An Evening Stuck in Big Sky

Eric, Toby and I went to Big Sky for the Farmer’s market last night and got stuck up there when a semi full of decking materials had the misfortune of overturning. What made clean up even longer was the other semi hauling logs over turned about a quarter mile north from that. So, we ended up stuck in Big Sky for 5 hours. I got a lot of knitting done, just sayin’.

We drove around a bit after dinner to kill time. There

really isn’t a horrible view there. This is towards the Yellowstone Club.

This is where we rejoined the line, just at the turn off for

Lone Peak Brewing, where we had dinner.

Toby was exhausted. It is so rough being a dog.

Crazies and Fiber

Today I got to go to the first annual Big Timber fiber fest! As this is it’s first year, it was a little small, but it was a lot of fun. My husband accompanied me on this trip, so he got to simply exist and people watch to his heart’s content, though I did hear him talking fiber with some of the ladies there. Guess he really does listen when I go off on fiber tangents.  🙂

We got to watch a sheep sheering demo – the lady sheering started because there was

no one else to sheer them.

Hitting the Crazies on the way back.

Yarn I picked up at the fest. The cones are mill spun, but where

a really good price. The purple is Merino/silk blend.

New Yarn Shop

Today we went to Great Falls, making a day of the Farmer’s Market, the CM Russel Museum, and maybe some shopping. Ergo, I FINALLY got up to Great Falls not on a holiday weekend or just a Sunday day trip, ergo, I FINALLY got to go to Pam’s Knit n’ Stitch. It is a good sized shop, with a healthy yarn selection, and some beading and quite a bit of cross stitch stuff as well. As we got in a bit late (half an hour before they close), we tried to be quick. In the end, I picked out a couple skeins of yarn, and a Card and Tablet weaving booklet.

This picture does not do the colors justice. At all.

Never heard of this yarn before. I like it.

And because I like it, well, it is not the most expense yarn I have purchased,

but it is close. Kind of.

It was 50 cents. Who can resist that?
