I didn't realize how long it had been since I last blogged until the other day. I just have been caught up in a heavy work schedule and lost track of time. So much has been going on, that I hope that I can remember what to catch up on. I have been knitting on the same project forever. I am not one for having a lot of UFOs hanging out so I have been working on the same thing and it's boring me to tears. I made a promise not to buy any yarn until Maryland Sheep and Wool and I haven't. I am debating whether or not I will hang in there another six months and not buy anymore yarn. I am positive that I can, but I am wondering about gifts for friends and family. What if I don't have a color they like for a certain project? My taste seems to be more earth tones and more subdued colors compared to what everyone else likes. So I keep working on this project until the answer comes to me.
I joined a local CSA (Community Support Agriculture) farm that does a fiber CSA. I split a share with another spinner. I am very excited to see how it goes. I think we might get to attend a day of dyeing and then get our shares in the fall after they come back from the processor. I will post all of this as soon as it happens.
I came and went to Maryland Sheep & Wool Show with a group of ladies that were tons of fun from a knitting group that I belong to. Had a great time and made a few smallish purchases and one really long overdue one.
Just this past week (5/7/10) I added something new to me. It was painful but I thought it turned out well.
We got the garden in and a new rain barrel hooked up to the one we bought last year so watering the garden should cost us a little less. The next big addition is going to be a compost bin of some sort. Can you tell I am really into the gardening thing. If I could figure out where to put a bin for Vermicomposting (composting with Red Wigglers) I would. I am afraid the dogs would go after the juices that come from that kind of composting. Not a wonderful thought.
So can see that I have been busy doing thing and I have been taking pictures in hopes that I would be able to find time to catch up on what's been going on. So stay tuned for posts on each of the events listed above. I took pictures for the purchases for MDS&W and hopefully I can get some posts done this week with my lesser working schedule. So please hang in there with me while I do some catching up!
