Oh, Hello!

Things have been moving at break neck speed it seems so here's a "drive by" blog post!

ToolMan and I spotted this on our way to the Columbia Gorge Fiber Festival a couple weeks ago; we seriously considered forcing him onto the shoulder for a quick refill!

The fiber fest was full of the usual goodies and old friends.

I didn't have much time to shop; I spent most of my time spinning and winding skeins of yarn for donations.  I did get a couple of bobbins filled but didn't finish the bump of fiber; hopefully I'll get it done this week.  Ha!

The Secret Knitting is done and has been turned in.  This is the only thing I can show you until it's released later in the year.  I can tell you that the yarn, Stacatto from Shibui, was absolutely fabulous to knit with!  And this isn't the actual color; the one I got the joy of knitting with hasn't been released yet.  :)

I gave up on the warp that was on the loom and cut the whole mess off.  I did invest in the Floor Loom Weaving class on Craftsy, which has taught me more in a few hours than what I gleaned from library books and websites.  If you haven't heard of Craftsy, go over there and try one one the free classes.  I'm liking their format more and more; it has the convenience of a CD to rewind and replay, but the addition of being able to email questions to the instructor is the best thing since sliced bread!  I plan on using my little Secret Knitting check to pick up a warping board, couple of shuttles, and other things I need to start weaving.  Lord knows I have enough yarn to start with!

I think I've identified the judges for the Washington County Fair; I just need to squeeze in a meeting time when we can all sit down and discuss details and times.  I've been recruiting volunteers to help with the Fair, and that'll probably continue right up to the last minute.

My poor TKGA Masters notebook is sitting somewhat neglected; I have finished the first 3 swatches and swatch pages and gotten them into the notebook.  Too many things on my plate right now to concentrate on that.  It may get put on the back burner until after the Fair.

Until next time, I'll see you in the funny pages!

  4. Tim and that i were sticking to Dad and mom and in addition they lead me to trust
    we were about to brunch at Sarabeth's and a Yankees game. No person laughed and said about it the night before but that morning apparently Paul the house with extra tickets (There's no doubt that).
    I questioned Tim or M&D about it when you can't make reservations for brunch at Sarabeth's and we weren't going super early thus didn't think
    we'd make game with time (Tim loves to arrive promptly/early for baseball). They claimed that we would. I should say also knew from Tim that afternoon games typically started at 1:10 this also game started in the different time. I'm suspicious and
    would search for the Sports section but didn't. In the kitchen, Mom was modeling some big sun hat that she would wear towards game. She seemed looking forward to it. For the drive to the city, I felt a little bit blue because I'd been hoping there are a bridal shower but experimented
    with give attention to learning Italian. I did question
    why we exited the FDR where we did whenever i knew
    Sarabeth's wasn't in that direction. Tim said dad indicated there were traffic.
    There's no doubt that he called Tim's cell phone.

    It turns out in the morning when the phone rang it had
    been dad making the property phone ring because Tim knew how suspicious I became
    and since not one person mentioned the day's outing the night before We would question operate all developed outside of nowhere. The product ringing was allegedly Paul. Also, Tim said he hid the Sports section if I attempted to determine the time in the gang. Boy was I surprised while you and many types of my girlfriends were within the sidewalk outside Sylvia's (without Sarabeth's)! That it was an exciting gospel brunch and surprise. Hee!

  5. What concerning the colour printing. You ask which is more affordable
    in B&W yet just what about general usage. My inkjet smears every
    shade I attempt to print. So is laser better for throughout top quality at a
    reasonable expense.
