This is a spot for me to ramble about my interests which include my cats and dogs, knitting, spinning, and a few other crafts/hobbies.

Busy, Busy, Busy; Visiting the Fiber Festival of New England
It's been a busy month of knitting, spinning, and other stuff. My needles have been clicking away. My "Mystic Midsummer Wreath Shawl" was finished at the beginning of October. Here it is blocking.
One of the podcasts I enjoy watching is Knitabulls. Diane had a KAL for the "Dancing Batty Shawl" for October.
I've also been knitting on a pair of "Breaking Hearts" socks. The first sock is finished and the second is ready for it's heel flap.
My Minstrel wheel has been busy with the CJ Kopec "Lily Pond" fiber. I finished all 8 ounces the other night as a Navajo ply. I didn't figure out the yardage yet. Last night found me starting some FatCatKnits in a lovely Mohair/Wool/Nylon in the "Dead of Night" color.
Last Saturday and Sunday was spent with some of my favorite fiber pals at the Second Annual Fiber Festival of New England. I missed the first one last year due to medical issues so I was really looking forward to this one. There was a stop at WEBS and their bead store on the way.
We chose to make it into a girl's weekend and stayed at the Sheraton in Springfield, MA Saturday night.
Here's a picture of all my fiber goodies except for the two fleece I brought to Fibers4Ewe booth for processing.
Tuesday found me dropping off 24 pounds of mostly washed fleece/fiber at Fibers4Ewe for processing. I was going to wait and bring half of it up when my other two fleece were ready for pick up, but decided to just get it up there now instead.
