Christmas is Coming!
It has been a long time since I have blogged. We have been traveling since August 1st. First to Orlando, for a 6 day conference. Who goes to Florida in August. We came home for a few days and then left for a family trip to New York City to visit our daughter and her family. Then home for a few days and then back to Pennsylvania to watch grandkids while son was out of town.
October brought a slew of fibery trips. We made it to Rhinebeck this year for the first time. It was a great trip. Loved seeing the sheep to shawl competition.
A week later we headed to SAFF. This is a trip that is planned far in advance and really looked forward to each year. Bought some alpaca yarn from Apple Hill Farm. They always have a great selection. Also, got my yearly fix of McMatley yarns. Cliff and Ernesto are always fun to be with.
We left the festival and headed for Mobile where we spent a week with friends. It was great!
The first week of November was spent in Michigan at Knittin’ in the Mitten with 74 wonderful knitters, spinners, designers and friends. What a great time.
We headed to Pennsylvania to spend Thanksgiving with our son and his family.
December has been busy with short trips around the state to see friends and attend meetings.
I am finishing up my tenure on the local habitat board and as President. Maybe next year there will be more time for knitting, spinning and weaving.
This past week has been spent recuperating from gallbladder surgery. No knitting right now either.
Looking forward to a happy and healthy New Year.
Until next time . . . . . .
