Every October, the Ventura County Spinning and Weaving Guild, of which I am a new member, hosts an Open House. This Open House is not just any Open House. This event involves inviting vendors of knitting, spinning and weaving items to show their wares in one spot, during one morning. I borrowed The Professor's university staff parking permit and drove to the campus where the Open House was held.
I ohhed and ahhed, stroked and fondled, wandered and chatted. I walked away with most of my cash intact. I did purchase two hanks of handpainted silk/fine merino fiber.
I want so much to post photos of the Open House, the beautiful yarns, and brilliant fibers. But. Here is where disaster struck. Actually, it was my camera that struck. The floor. I dropped my bag. It just slipped out of my hand and the contents went 'plunk'. I heard it. Calamity of the worst kind.
I am waiting for The Professor to diagnosis the extent of the disaster. As far as I can see, the situation is hopeless. All the buttons work except the one that snaps pictures. Everything shows up on the display except whatever the camera is pointing at. If I can't push the shutter button and the display is nonfunctional, then, well, I can't take photos. We'll see what The Professor says.
In the meantime, I am consoling myself by spinning some silk/fine merino fiber.
