The Ohio Fiber Network is dedicated to supporting Ohio fiber producers and artists, and to developing awareness of the diversity and beauty of Ohio farm yarns and fleecesYes. Please. Sign me right up. I can't wait to oogle all of the locally raised goodness. And Ohio fleeces? Might motivate me to actually dust off my spinning wheel. They are also doing dying and spinning demonstrations. Funtimes, indeed. And if that wasn't enough motivation to check it out how about this:
That would be a basket of my brand spanking new base yarn Silk Road:
Silk Road SockYUM. I actually tried out this base so that my mom could knit herself a ridiculously luxurious shawl for my brother's wedding:
This luxurious blend of 50% silk and 50% superwash merino wool is incredibly soft. It is perfect for lace shawls and scarves or anything else worn close to the skin.
Yeah. It's that nice.

I only have a few skeins of it in a few select semi-solid colorways:
So get it while you can because I have a feeling it's going to go quick!
I'm also going to do a drawing for one of these rare and luxurious skeins. To enter all you have to do is wear (or if it's a million degrees out like it's supposed to be bring) a finished object knit out of Destination Yarn.
Hope to see you there!!!
PS I have ONE skein of America the Beautiful that I reserved for this show. Just sayin'
