Oakland Fiber Festival!
The second year of the Oakland Fiber Festival, the weather was much better (not so hot as last year) and there were a lot more vendors. I volunteered to teach crochet in the morning and then walked around the festival, managing to buy three skeins of yarn and a few back issues of crochet magazines. We ate lunch at an excellent Greek restaurant about a block away on Grand Avenue, and also browsed through a nice used bookstore (I found a book of botanical art that I didn't already have, all California plants). The other photo shows a sweater I started last year and finally finished last week!
