Is this baby not adorable? I fall in love each and every time I see their precious little faces. I keep threatening Ken that we will have Alpaca someday and he keeps saying..."Thank God for zoning laws".....
Truly...where do the days go? Here it is already late Tuesday night and I am finally getting around to blogging about the fabulous albeit short time I had visiting with friends at the Fiber Revival in Newbury, Ma.
I was a good girl and bought very little, but I do love what I bought!
See that little glimpse of silver? Those are a pair of fabulous hammered silver earrings from Leslie Wind. Leslie is definitely one of those "givers" that I have mentioned in past blog posts. She is such a wonderfully supportive and giving lady who loves to teach her trade. I will be taking a trip down to visit her shop in the very near future :).
I also picked up some yummy bfl roving from Amy. Very different colors for me, other than that golden orange that just jumped out at me and said...."buy me"...how could I resist?
The last thing in this picture is called a knitandspin. I have to tell you, when I first caught a glimpse of this little wooden object, knitting tool is not what first ran thru my mind....yikes! After I spoke with the woman who was selling them, I had a brainstorm on how to use it. No.........not that way.......sheesh! I will share more with you in a few days :).
Do you remember summer vacations when you were young? Sometimes July would seemed like it would never end...it would be summer always, but then that second week of August would roll around and all of a sudden you wanted to do all of the things that you had not yet done.
I feel like that little kid.....scurrying around like a chipmunk picking up my acorns. Summer IS coming to an end and the fall fairs are just around the corner...yikes! The dyepots will be fired up soon with new colors and my personal knitting will be laid aside for fair knitting. Will there be enough time?
Tonight the air is chilly and dry, but very very refreshing after the long, humid summer. As we toss open the windows to enjoy the coolness of the late August night it is not hard to believe that Autumn is just around the corner.
