Saw one of these on Jeanne’s Blog and because I am a Lemming and think she is a superstar, I have one too.
I actually have not picked up my needles since thursday – I don’t know where the time’s gone, and why I’m not packing my knitting or knitting at lunch – must be the nice weather. But I’m hoping to get on the sockage tonight.
And realizing that MDS&W is less than two weeks away – and since the 400 pounds of wool and roving simply aren’t enough(?), I’m making a semi-list for purchases. This way, I’m not running around, grabbing things like a woman high on wool fumes. We also have a Cinco De Mayo Party that night to go to, just up the road a bit and I’m delusionally planning on going after we get home from the Fest of Wool. Or at least stopping by for one itty, bitty harmless Margarhita. I’ve noticed a lack of Maryland posts this year in bloglandia – is it just me, or am I not reading the really hot Festival posts?
And the craziest news? Well, really not that crazy at all in my opinion – Crazy Aunt Purl’s got a book coming out!!! I’m looking forward to reading it – I enjoy Laurie’s blog so much and I’m glad to see she’s put her talent for writing out there.
Here are few linkages for ya – Good Soapworks of Athens – I’ve been using this soap for about a month now and it’s just wonderful – I’m glad I order two bars and plan on ordering more. Someday I intend on treating my self to one of these beautiful, handwoven Shawls by Scarfguy – he really has such an amazing eye for pattern and color. And check out this cool shop – The Fearless Knitter – her California Sunset Rug is just Amazing.
