I’m thankful that the Zombie Plague is healing up. I wasn’t able to go to have Thanksgiving dinner with my family today due to it being contagious. My DH and I are eating at home tonight: a vegetarian feast complete with a pumpkin pie and corn muffins. I’m thankful for a warm home and someone to share my meal with, despite being away from family.
I wish each and everyone of you a very Happy Thanksgiving.
I have what my DH has dubbed “The Zombie Plague.” Let’s just say I’m itchy and I have a hunger for braiiiiins.
Despite the ZP, I have gotten a lot of knitting done. I’ve finished my Christmas hat (pics coming when I’m healed up), knit a scarf in chunky yarn, and am working on a second one. It’s been a productive plague, to say the least.
Time for more Benedryl, Aveeno lotion, and braiiins.
On Saturday I visited the Small Alpaca Farms of the Northeast Association’s (SAFONA) Fiber Arts Festival in New Holland, PA. It was a dreamland for knitters, crocheter, spinners, weavers, and shoppers, as there were completed projects there for purchase. Though small in size, this festival was well worth the visit, and plan on going again next year. I did purchase a beautiful hank of hand painted purple alpaca yarn. It is beautiful.
Enjoy the photos I have here, as I went armed with camera in hand. Though no alpacas, there were angora bunnies, as this was festival for fibers of any animal.
I was pretty pleased with the workshop on Craftsy, though I did think some things were assumed and could’ve been spelled out a little more, such as when told to change to a different size needle, another way to explain it would be to purl back with the new needle. Just a thought. Otherwise, it is a well done workshop, and I would recommend it to any new knitter looking to make a quick project where you can learn a lot of new techniques
