I know you are all probably in shock. Well, its been crazy busy at my house as I have a daughter planning a December wedding and so it goes with all the details of a bridal shower, fittings, decorations, you name it. The shower is this Saturday and I have yet to get started on making the food.
So, I happen to have the day off and I am catching up on some necessary phone calls to make and arrangements for my car to have an oil change and whatever else it may need. I do a lot of travelling with my job - my car needs to be in good shape.
I finally am here to share with you some of the purchases I made at the Rhinebeck NY Sheep and Wool Festival For the first time, hubby came with me and my two boys who are 15 and 14 , they really love it . Hubby actually was in no rush to leave (as I was afraid he would be before I was ready) and even said on the drive home that he looks forward to it next year. Is it possible they had a better time than I did??? No! but I was so pleased to see everyone enjoying themselves. It is truly a fun family event!
First purchase here
Flaggy Meadow Fiber Works
Soft, cannot wait to spin this up. I am still looking to purchase a Turkish spindle - hoping to maybe use this fiber to try the Turkish spindle out with. If not, I will be spinning it on my Russian Supported Spindle.
I also purchased some home made soaps, hand softening creams, and lots of food , naturally. What a great day we had.
Next up I want to share with you a pair of mittens I made:
Ravelry a free pattern. They are so cute and fun to make - I did the smallest size and they fit my adult working hands perfectly.
I actually made these for a young girl who works at my local Dunkin Donuts. - one day she commented on another pair of fingerless gloves I had made - and she said Oh I want those gloves!!!! - so I went home and made these for her. When I presented them to her she couldn't believe it - she was in shock that someone would even do that. Two days later - she made me accept my coffee on her dime - she absolutely loves her mitts! These are a light grey color - I was not sure what color she liked but figured these would go with anything. Now I want a pair! :)
