Meeting Old Friends and Sharing Good Times

Wednesday night was the usual Craft Night with most of the regulars. A few were sadly missed, but, hopefully they will make it again soon.

Tonight was the monthly Knitting and Crochet Guild meeting. It was nice to see everyone again after not being able to go to the July meeting and missing the August one. I need to pay attention to the fact that the October meeting is a week later due to a holiday that day.

I've been alternating between the Dragon Scales Shawl and the Nanner Sock. The sock is easier for me to work on when with friends. The lace of the shawl means I need to concentrate a bit more and can't talk or participate in my surroundings as easily.

Tomorrow will be a quiet day to work around the house and get caught up on some things I need to finish here. Maybe even wash a fleece.

Saturday, the Spinners Guild is going to be demonstrating at Casey Farm in the morning at the Farmer's Market, and then there's a progressive meeting at Iris and Dave's house in the afternoon to learn Portuguese knitting. I think I will bring my Golding spindle and my Grafton Fibers I got from the NH Sheep and Wool Festival, in case it rains. I don't think it would be a good idea to have the Sonata get wet while I try to put it back in the bag if it decides to downpour. I came home tonight and took the spindle out and played with it a little bit. It spins so smooth.

I got my sheep stitch markers in the mail yesterday and today. They are so adorable and I love them all. I can now say have a flock of sheep, even though they are pink. I also have one in white and one in cocoa brown.
