Desert Mesa Fall 2016
Left here on September 12 intending to have my snow tires on the car before heading down to Desert Mesa in Cache Creek, not a chance that they could do tires until Friday the 21st, so took a chance on weather holding until I could get back to Williams Lake. Desert Mesa was the 13th thru 16th and about as much fun as can legally be had. A smaller group than usual meant conversions could be had with anyone sitting close. 3 vendors Mary-Anne Smith, Lynne Anderson and Sharon Wickstrom, was able to get Merino-Silk from Sharon and Merino-Nylon from Mary-Anne and stayed within my budget.
Spun some vintage merino-nylon while at DM, nearly finished the 2nd bobbin of yarn when plied will be sock weight.
Stopped Kal Tire early Monday morning and there was a no show for 8 am app't so was able to get my car in for tire change, now legal to drive on major highways, snow tires mandatory now until April. Got car back just after 9, headed directly to grocery store for a few goodies then west and home. Was delighted to find all tomatoes in spare bedroom (cool room) were in excellent shape.
