I know that I haven't posted for a while but it has been quite a couple of weeks. A week and a half ago, Kathy and I invited the knitting ladies up to camp to do some dyeing in the wilds of New Hampshire. All summer long we have talked about all the critters that visit us while we are at camp. Do you think ONE of them would come when the knitters were there? NOOOOOOOOOO of course not. (I personally think that they thought that Carolyn was there and didn't want to scare her) but....there was nothing I could do. Mary pleaded with the turtles to at least come out for a bit...but no...they would have none of it. So what did we do? We dyed, laughed, ate and even sat around the fire for a bit. I believe a good time was had by all and hopefully we will do it again next year at our new campground. Look at Dye Party Part 2 for photos of the fun day.
Oh yea did I mention that the day after the dyeing party we had to pack up camp and get everything ready to move to the new campground? This is something that we (us, Kathy and Jim) have been planning for sometime now. The only problem? The man that was moving the trailers could only do it on Thursday. That left me out of the loop, but Mary, Kathy and Jim were back up at camp on Thursday to make sure that everything went smoothly and to pack and unpack the UHaul truck that was rented to get everything (grill, tarp, tables, etc) over to the new campground. Oh the new campground's name is Hillcrest. They are great. The owners are a super couple named Pat and Bob. They have even asked Kathy and I if we would like to host a knitting group on Sunday mornings...WOOO HOO.
On Saturday night we went to the Deerfield fair with Mary's sister Jeannie and Joe, their neice Patty and her bf Jim and her little guy Jonathan. It was fun, we got to see all the farm animals, lots of sheep, Icelandic Sheep, Tunis Sheep North Country Cheviot, some baby pigs, and some goats, we also ate our weight in fair food. We also saw a spinning demo, a woman doing some needle felting and an entire stall filled with fiber arts. Very cool.
Work is great, now that my computer is once again working properly. It has been frustrating the last couple of days while I waited to have it fixed.
I am finishing up Kelsie's green embossed leaf socks. They were on hold for a bit again as I need to knit something for ACMoore. Next on the needles will be some fingerless gloves for Jared and then xmas presents.
Rhinebeck in a couple of weeks. I am very excited. I am particapating in Rhinebeck Bingo. I am a player and a square for Saturday and Sunday so look for me. I will have my orange bag and some other distinct items that I will let you know about closer to the time.
