In Which the Pirate Visits The Mannings.
Last weekend, to kick off the Tour de Fleece, Michael and I stopped at the Mannings on our way from Connecticut to Virginia. (If I’d known it was actually only about 90 minutes from home, I would have gone there sooner!)
We looked at the wheels and the looms and the gorgeous weaving projects in progress…
…and then the yarn. I didn’t want to leave without a souvenir skein or two, and eventually chose a ball of Austermann Step in a grayish-greenish-blue-ish colourway, and a skein of Cascade 220 Quatro in greys to make a hat for Michael. He wanted something very specific and so I was glad to have him there to pick out the exact yarn he wanted.
Here I am being indecisive, but I’ve already got the ball of Step in my hand.
We saw this crocheted spare tire cover on our way out. Very cool!
