...Until Maryland Sheep and Wool! I'm so excited ...This will be my fourth time at the S&W. I hope to find a phang or Russian spindle, and some pretty stitch markers (need to have lots for all the WIPs), and a shawl pin or two. I have a few dozen plastic stitch markers, but just lately I've been wanting the prettier dangley ones that look like they could be earrings. So that is on my list.
And fiber. Lots of fiber. I have spun up everything from last year's S&W, except the camel, which is a bit tedious. I still have fiber, of course, because I'm an Etsy floozy, but it's not the same as walking into the gates at the fairgrounds, and making a beeline for my favorite vendor and fondling everything in sight.
So aside from gardening, what have I been doing?
The spinning wheel kept giving me hurt looks every time I walked past her, so I finally sat down and indulged her.
Here is a new WIP, the Wisteria Arbor Shawl from "Sock Yarn One Skein Wonders." Right now it just looks like a fish tail, I think.
The yarn is some of my favorite handspun, but I don't recall the details right now. I have three different shades of dark red from three different sources. I'm going to hopefully use it all up on this project. The pattern is meant to be lacy, so you're supposed to use a light weight yarn ... I don't know if I can fit 256 stitches of this heavy yarn on my needle!
The perpetual bunting. I think we established on my last post that there is no way this is fitting that wee tiny child any time soon.
I was trying to wait to post till the new fence is up -- it's underway right now! But the yard is going to be a mess and I won't want a picture of that on my blog, no matter how nice the new fence. Maybe by next posting, I'll have the yard cleaned up and the garden in (finally). Then it will be picture-worthy.
Happy Fiber Arts Friday, everyone! Thanks, Andrea, for being such a great hostess!
