Come See Upton Yarns (and many others) at Highlands on the Fly – October 24-25th

by Sarah Lake Upton


Upton Yarns will be hitting the road and heading up to the New England Outdoor Center in Millinocket, Maine on October 24th for the Highlands on the Fly knitting retreat, hosted by the wonderful Sarah Hunt of Fiber Trek (Swenstea on Ravelry).  In addition to vending, I will be doing a sort of rotating indigo dyeing demonstration, by which I mean that I will be working with my indigo pot for an hour or two, while hopefully having interesting conversations about indigo dyeing with anyone who stops by to watch (I get really excited about indigo).  It may end up blurring the line between “demonstration” and “performance art”, but then, what doesn’t?


In addition to my normal yarn inventory, I will be bringing along a number of never-before-offered-for-sale small batches of yarns, including:


 Worsted weight Corriedale x Montedale

Worsted weight Corriedale x Montedale

 Fingering weight Corriedale

Fingering weight Corriedale

 And swatched

And swatched

And some of the mountain of Romney > Cotswold fingering weight yarn that I dyed the last time I was home.

 It's somewhere in this mess of yarn...
