… the common cold. Oye! I’ve been kind of down and out for the last couple of days thanks to a cold that kept me home on Tuesday and Wednesday (Note to self: Don’t get sick on Jewish holidays. The drs. office won’t be open!). All good intentions of blogging went out the window as booth preparations took what little energy I had. There are still a few more tweeks to be made, but this is about what it’s going to look like this weekend.
Now that I’m starting to feel better, I’m getting more excited about this weekend. The weather is supposed to be great and I’ve got lots of friends helping me out, so I’m looking forward to a good run. In that second pic you can see some of the superwash merino batts I’ve been making up on the new toy. I’m really excited about being to offer these! They’re big and fluffy and the color blends are coming out nicely.
Incidentally, if you’d like to win one of those lovely fluffy batts, hurry on over to the Zarzuela’s Fibers Junkies group on Ravelry! I’m running a contest that ends today!
I’m also excited to be able to offer some of Eklectica’s beautiful spindles! I talked about the one she gave me to review in this post. She’s got a bunch of different woods and weights in what she sent me which is going to make it very hard to see them all go!
Anyway, if you’re going to be at the festival this weekend, do stop by and say hello! I’ll be inside one of the barns but I won’t know which one until I get there. I’m sure I’ll have lots to report next week!
Finally, while I was on the couch for more hours than I care to count, I finished up sleeve #1 of the Rhinebeck sweater:
I’m sure you can see my little goof there, but ya know what? Nobody’s perfect and I’m just going to leave it. It wouldn’t be me if I didn’t have a mis-crossed cable in there somewhere! Sleeve number 2 is well under way, but the fact that there are only two weeks left to get this thing finished is making me a little nervous! There’s still seaming! And a button band! And a collar! And I have to find buttons!
I think I’ll take a little lesson from Scarlet O’Hara here:
I’ll think about it…. MONDAY!
You know, after the festival.
Have a great weekend everyone! Wish me luck!!
