I wound up spending a good chunk of this afternoon with Rachel and Mac, at the fiber arts demo for the 100-mile suit project.  Aside from all of the joys of knitting while surrounded by spinners and of talking with friends, I got the opportunity to buy this:

Two ounces of beautiful grey Shetland (I think she said it was Shetland, but it’s really soft, and I don’t care) from a local farm, run by one of the spinners I met this afternoon.  I think it’ll be one of the colors in the Anemoi mittens I plan to knit.
