I Like All the Different People, I Like Every Kind of Fair

Puyallup Fair Faves 2008

Mom and I went to the Puyallup Fair today, and we had a full day of fair food and activities. We managed to uphold one of my critical fair rules (No New Space-Age Mops), and we saw a bunch of farm animals with our friend J___, who also appears to love Ballard and cupcakes. Can't argue with that!

The craft sale area was a highlight (as were the dahlias, obvously), although I guess I didn't take any photos there. Which is weird, because I distinctly remember taking at least one photo of the beautiful hand dyed yarns. There were spinners spinning (nobody I knew), and a woman making lampwork beads, very impressive. There was not a large representation of knitted items in the exhibition hall, which made me a little sad that I was too lazy to drive down and enter my Olympic Orange Oolong socks. They would certainly have been the brightest entry. I've said it before, I'll say it again--Maybe Next Year! After all, there's between $5 and $10 in prize money at stake, which is almost enough to buy yarn for one sock!

I Like All the Different People, I Like Every Kind of Fair: The Breeders, "Saints" Recommended Video here (it's a little weirder than I expected, but then again it isn't.) Note to knitters--Kelley Deal was featured on an episode of Knitty Gritty. with a felted purse design.

How can you mention the pooey-loop and not talk about the scones?
