Hello and Good Morning!
How was your weekend? Mine was a good one. Saturday was BOTH my birthday and the New Jersey Sheep and Wool Festival. What's not to love about that? I drove to Dee's and then she drove us over the river and into Festival territory. It was crowded and it was also bigger than last year. Lots of yarny things and lots of sheep.
Bonny was unable to meet with us on Saturday and I don't know if Bridget ever made it to the Fairgrounds...we did not run into her. As I mentioned, there were plenty of sheep, so here's a sampling:
Look Ma! I've got horns!!
There was a new-to-me vendor and I did not buy anything from her, but I HAD to take a picture of her sign:
We walked around a lot and I was very restrained in my purchases! Here's what I got:
A mini skein from The YarnSmith - colorway American Robin. I thought this would be pretty on cuffs and heels and toes of solid color socks.
The middle skein is from Kints4Comfort and the colorway is Squash Blossom. So pretty.
Last up, a skein of blue from Three Bunny Designs in the colorway Bunny's Got Her Blue Jeans On. This skein is for socks for Fletch.
There is one last skein of yarn, but I did not buy it. Dee gifted me this skein for my birthday!
Thank you Dee! This is from Machete Shoppe and the colorway is Douglas Fir. Beautiful!
After a lovely lunch out at Chive we headed back to Dee's and I picked up my car and drove home. I was beat! All that walking around (3 hours) on rough ground about did my feet and heels in. Added to that is the fact that for 3 nights running I had not slept well. But, it was a wonderful time and thank goodness we went on Saturday because it rained all day Sunday (and more today and tomorrow too).
I came home to a gorgeous bouquet that Fletch had bought for me:
Sunday, the rainy day, I did manage to do some knitting, some stitching and some reading. I also paid bills and did some other "things." And today we are booked to get the updated Booster Vaccine at 11. We were hoping to be able to get this shot prior to our vacation (we leave 9/27).
Well, that's a wrap for me! How was your weekend?
