Spinning on My Spindle, Demonstrating, Learning New Things

Saturday was a fun filled day of demonstrating at Casey Farm at the Farmer's Market. With the weather being unpredictable, I did bring my Golding spindle as well as my wheel. The wheel stayed snug and dry in my trunk because the clouds were overhead the whole morning.

After the Farmer's Market, many of us met up at Iris' and Dave's for a progressive meeting which included a lesson in Portuguese knitting. I like this method very much because my hands don't feel the stress as much as they do with my English style knitting. I plan to make something using this style in the near future. There was lots of good food, company, and conversation as always whenever we get together.

When I got home, there were more sheep to add to my little flock of stitch markers. They are so adorable. One is lavender. If I can let them go, a couple are destined for travels.

Sunday was a quiet day at home with Pat. We did the usual running to the market, errands, house things, and just relaxed a bit.

I'm still knitting on the Dragon Scales Shawl and Nanner Socks. On Friday, I found my size 1 30 inch circular needle, so I transferred from the size 0 24 inch circular needle and it is much easier to navigate the stitches without stretching them. I've not felt that great lately, so my knitting has suffered a bit.

Tonight, I plan to work on the shawl for a bit, but, need to make something for supper first. Also, I need to throw the laundry in the washer.....

I hate when that laundry crap gets in the way!
