This is the absolutely BEST time of the year – the BEST! I’m feeling like I have a little more energy – found myself dancing around the living room with my kids yesterday and felt like a different person! Finishing up a few chair seats for Melanie, looking forward to the Rhinebeck Sheep & Wool Fest this weekend and maybe having a chance to pick up some pointers on spinning. I noticed that Handwovens of Pennington not too very far from me offers spinning wheels for rental (and drum carders!) so maybe I’ll be moving into this for some new fun and excitement!
Today I received mail from Habu Textiles, where I got some AMAZING silk for dying – they promised (and delivered!) to send info on a wire resource for knitting. How cool! I also got a note from Sara at Blue Santa Beads I really enjoyed her booth at SE – great stuff, really lovely and beautifully laid out! I’m hoping to hear from Gwen at Knitability to see if she got home okay. And I just keep stroking my yarn from Interlacements Yarns so beautiful, so amazing! I’m in love (alas, it seems that the yarn isn’t available for viewing at the website – too bad!)
