Sheep Get-Together – New Jersey

This Saturday, September 9, 2017 I’ll be having breakfast and lunch and wandering the Garden State Sheep Breeder’s Festival for anyone interested in joining.

Event:  Breakfast
Time: 8:30 – 9:30

The Sheep Festival time will be approximate (based on how long breakfast takes) and will be very informal, since it’s difficult to navigate the vendor booths and sheep as a large group.
I plan on heading home after lunch, but some folks may want to go back to the sheep festival.
Feel free to leave a comment or message me on Facebook or send an e-mail if you plan on joining in for any of the events.

Current Knitting

Finished up the Color Block Scarf I showed as a WIP on Monday (including weaving in all ends!).

While the basic design is very simple, I love the strong colors and the yarn is incredibly soft, very warm and machine washable.
I also decided I needed to make a dozen or so pairs of baby booties to sell at the craft shows.

I’m thinking that if folks like the Color Block Baby Blankets, they may not look enough like a baby gift without a pair of booties with them.  Plus, this pattern knits up very quickly and having a spectrum of different colored booties will provide another quick-sell item at the table.
