Here's the Latest Happenings

I guess it has been a few days since I did a blog and I will be internet-less tonight, so I am going to try to get this entry written before school today.

This has been a busy week, but better busy than bored! 

Last night I started a 4-class basket weaving course with 4 of my Women's Weekend friends and another friend from high school. We each made a napkin basket and we all were quite pleased with the results. As you might imagine, we had a lot of laughs, which may be what caused a scheduled 3 hour class turn into a 4 hour class!
I don't have a close up of my basket because I am waiting for the basket to dry completely before I trim off 2 last ends. Then I will present my masterpiece! My SIL, Maryanne, is a very talented basket maker and I am no where near her skills, but her baskets have been an inspiration!

In knitting news, I whipped up a new dish cloth for our kitchen. I found this pattern with the outline of a VW Beetle on it, so I knit it up in yellow. You have to look carefully at the photo to see the Beetle. I think it is cute!

Today Sally and I leave for Rhinebeck, NY for the New York State Sheep and Wool festival. We both have new sweaters to wear and it sounds like the weather is going to be perfect sweater weather. Before leaving for work this morning, Jim reminded me of my one restriction when I go to these kinds of  things-No Livestock (although I believe he would love to be an alpaca farmer!!).

Corey is in Indiana for a race on Saturday. Good Luck and Run Fast!

Time to go to school and earn some yarn money!

Have a good weekend and I'll post some Rhinebeck photos on my return (I know you can hardly wait!).

Hope all is well.

I think an Alpaca would be a nice addition to the back yard!
