I'm home! Thank you Lynne for being a fantastic person! Thank you Sharon and Richard for being wonderful hosts! I had such a good time :)
I thought you might like to see what I bought for yarn when I was in Nova Scotia. As you know, I like to buy local products when I travel. We went to the Lunenburg Farmer's Market (which is completely wonderful by the way, and it operates year round; they even provide you with live entertainment!) where I bought some hand dyed yarn by Felicia Knock:
This 4 ounce skein is a 2-ply, made in Canada; Felicia's web site is www.feliciaknock.com. Most of what she does is rug hooking, and she has fabulous designs as well as kits and supplies. If I hooked rugs, this would be a real find!!
Then I went to Gaspereau Valley Fibres.
This is an outstanding yarn and fiber shop. There is so much to see here! It's all arranged very neatly, but with character -- and they had a cat. Brenda Gilmore is the owner and she is a wonderful person, who is also a friend of Sharon's. Sharon knows the best people :) You can go to Gaspereau Valley Fibres online at www.gaspereauvalleyfibres.ca.
I bought a skein of Fleece Artist Goldiehair, which is hand dyed in Nova Scotia:
And I bought some stitch markers, which are also hand made in Nova Scotia:
They're made by Pherem Fibres, which has a lovely Etsy store online.
After that, Sharon got my wheel fixed and I bought some roving, but that will wait until tomorrow!
