Here are my latest acquisitions from the Maryland Sheep and Wool. There is another garbage bag full of stuff that currently visiting Maggie. As soon as it gets here we’ll add it contents to the slide show. The first photo features a cone of worsted “Wool out of Wales” that I am very proud of. It took three years for me to catch it, every year i was just a little bit late, this year I got it. So, her
As promised I want to write about meeting Maggie and Co. at the Maryland Sheep and Wool. I dropped by Maggie’s booth in the morning, but she was out at the lecture. No problem I decided that I am going to visit other friends and pet (OK, buy) some fiber and “save the best for last”. I was only planing to stay at the fairgrounds until about Noon (that has been my baby deadline before), but my DH was
Here is a slide show made possible by my computer savvy, camera-wielding and all around wonderful DH. Eli – thank you. To start click on the arrow inside the picture. If you wish to watch it in full screen click on the bottom right corner.
It was wonderful. We left on Thursday and just got back. As usual it took us a while to get on the road, so instead of getting to Baltimore at about 8pm we got there about 11pm. Then we had a nice and restful two days with my DH’s cousins and aunt. Through all this time I was in complete weather denial. I was telling all that the Sun is about to come out. It is almost there. Ha! I set off for the festival on a
I have to finish packing and get on the way. I will be away until May 6Th and do not know if I will be able to have an access to the computer. If I can I will post. If not…see you after the Sheep and Wool.
There is an old Yiddish proverb – “The man thinks and The G-d laughs”. Well, at least someone is having fun. I had such plans for this week. I was going to sleep in (after getting the little monsters to school), I was going to knit and then knit some more. Instead all my expectations seem to be frustrated at every turn.On Monday after getting the kids off to school we went to book the car for Maryla
Last night I proudly wrote that I have resisted the lure of the new projects… Yea, right, we all know what happens to good intentions.So today I have managed to start TWO new projects. I rationalized that I have to have something newly knitted for the Sheep and Wool, sooo… just in case I do not finish my Vertical Vest on time, or it would be too hot, or…something…something… I started ano
So, the holiday of Pesach has passed. Things are almost back to normal again. Normal, being defined as “I get to knit and nobody gets hurt”. I have knitted very little during the past month. But some things got done. The spring cotton dress and I finally decided what it wants to be when it grows up. And it has been growing nicely in those few hours that I had to work on it. Also some new projects are begi
OK, with the Maryland Sheep and Wool so close I have joined some people on Ravelry and declared Moratorium on any knitting related purchases until the festival. I am beginning to think it was not a good move. I have not bought yarn in a while, I think about a month or so. I was saving the money for the S&W and had no real problem with “yarn abstinence”. All was well. But I am about to crack. Since I j
