What I Did Last Summer (A Back-To-School Flavored Post)

I'm feeling a bit nostalgic this morning. There are a myriad of things to be done before the World Sheep and Fiber Arts Festival in Bethel MO this weekend, from the mudane to the really important. Blogging falls somewhere in the middle. Perhaps it's the perfect place to start because of that. As I sit here listening to Bob Dylan's "Tangled Up In Blue" (Sorry about the ad) I'm wondering what exactly has happened to the summer. Here's a Midsummer's resolution...next summer make a list of goals to accomplish, and then go to it. It's not like this summer has been exactly fruitless. Here's a list of things I did see to fruition:

1. Knit TARDIS tablet cover

2. Knit a Doris the Hedgehog for Mr. Yarn Geek. Using the pattern from ClaireClutterbug.

3. Knit a Cush using the pattern written by Susan B. Anderson

4. Knit another Wingspan by maylin Tri'Coterie Designs.

5. Finish up the long-neglected Triinu Scarf from Nancy Bush's Knitted Lace of Estonia

6. I also made quite a few dish cloths for an experiment using Hemp yarn. (More on that in a later post)

7. I've also been working on the YarnGeekFibers Ravelry.com fiber database so you all can enter your fibers into your stashes more easily. You're welcome!

Hmm, it looks like I've done more than I thought. All this in addition to getting ready for, and attending, several fiber shows. There are only 2 more scheduled for us this year.

1. World Sheep and Fiber Arts Festival in Bethel, MO August 31 - September 1, 2013. There is a special treat on Saturday after the show closes. A spin in will be held for a few hours in the old gymnasium. Come on over and enjoy pizza, refreshments and fun spinning games for prizes. A lovely time will be had by all.

2. Strange Folk Festival in O'Fallon, IL just outside of St. Louis, MO. September 28-29, 2013 This is a handmade goodies paradise. Two days of music, great people, unique items, tasty food and all out fun.

    After the vacation of the summer season, all the students have to back to the school. After that they will get the knowledge with the formal education from the educational institute. These institutes are telling about the main focus about the ethics and mannerism as well.

The hedgehog is adorable and the pillow looks amazing. Gotta love hand spun yarn.

Thanks girls! I went to the World Sheep Fest last weekend and found the perfect buttons for Cush. They are little handmade wooden BUNNIES! So cute! I'm also pleased to announce the hedgehog got the ribbon for Best of Show. Bob and I are pleased as punch.
