This reminded me of a childhood spirit, the Hippocamp, a mystical sea horse. A little whimsy never hurts!
It is now secured on the front door, along with a small gathering basket which collects bad karma and prevents it from entering the house (a Native American gift from my mom). One never has enough luck and karma of the good kind.
Other purchases from the festival that are fiber related include:
- 2 skeins of 100% Cashmere 4ply yarn from Cashmeres by Kate for a gift. I've been using her cashmere wash via on-line shopping for a couple of years so it was so nice to meet her and thank her for a wonderful product that eliminates costly dry cleaning bills.
- 3 skeins of beautiful Koigu from The Fiber Studio in Henniker, NH. There are two in this photo because one privileged adopted Maine Coon cat claimed ownership of one skein (with a lovely swatch on size 4 circulars). He wrapped yards of beautiful colorway around the legs of my antique oak table. Gasp! KittyQ, has no respect and frogged the swatch while dragging the needles to the farthest side of the house (where he tried to hide under "his rug." Where was I when all this was happening? In the den, blogging.
- 2 hanks/1200+ yards of gorgeous silk and merino hand painted yarn from Maple Creek Farms. The cost per skein is $20 less on Maple Creek's website then what I paid at the festival. This yarn has a wonderful hand and I surprised my daughter with my choice of colorway, Seaweed.
- 3 cherry pink balls of 100% Alpaca 2 ply worsted yarn. Mini-mill spun from father and son, Orion and The Boss from Foss Mountain Farm
Father and son: Orion and The Boss, aren't they adorable!
More pictures and a video clip will be posted later... I'm waiting for permission on one. Meanwhile,
Happy knitting . . .

The second graph shows the flame pattern with several repeats.
The graphs on this post are yours to make free with (a link back or a reference to bikerchicknits is appreciated). Flaming possibilities are endless with this chart, and you are encouraged to post comments about your flame projects!!
This is a fun pattern to knit up and I recommend Tahki Stacy Charles Cotton Classic yarn. The mercerized cotton has a slight sheen that compliments its flameulus stitch definition. I will be knitting flames in shades of blue soon.
Any chart/graph depicting flames on bikerchicknits has been created by me influenced by a fondness of flames, through my own experiences and my collection of various flame media from biker clubs, parties, rallies, swap meets, and vintage memorabilia.
