This weekend was chock full of events which kept this blogger very busy.
Thaddeus’ sister came to visit us on Thursday night, and left Saturday morning. She is the one who found a five pound bag of carded wool at a yard sale for $10. She also came bearing another yard sale find.
For one of the non-obsessed, she sure finds great deals on yarn and wool. Plus, whenever she’s here, we do the thing we all most like to do…eat. We got to go to my favorite Thai restaurant (the same place I ran into Anne from the Jersey Shore and her husband) and my favorite Indian restaurant.
Garden State Sheep Breeders Festival
Also this weekend, the annual NJ version of Rhinebeck takes place about 10 minutes from my house. Don’t get me wrong, it’s about one twentieth the size of Rhinebeck, but it’s a lovely little festival that I enjoy going to every year.
I have a few more shots of fiber animals and fiber purchases that I haven’t been able to organize yet, so I’ll post them in my next blog entry.
I’m still chugging along on the Celestine Shawl, and everyone who sees it in person, thinks it’s lovely (or at least they say they do).
This is about 33 inches in length at this point, and while I was trying to get a good shot of the border section, it wasn’t light enough outside to take a picture without a flash, so I’ll have to try and get a better picture some other time. I’m at 290 rows, with about 210 rows to go.
Question For Readers
Has anyone read the book Enemy Combatant yet?
I’ve heard the author, Moazzam Begg, interviewed, and it sounds like a fascinating read. I still have trouble believing we let our government do this sort of thing.
