I’m attending Pennsic this year, for the first time. It’s the 40th year for Pennsic, and they’re expecting 14-15,000 people to attend. I’ll be there for week 2, known as War Week, and I’ll be camping with my barony.
So I’m a bit distracted, thinking of all the things I need to get done before I go.
Also, the neighbor’s dog has new puppies, and they’re too cute not to play with.
I realized the other day I never posted anything about WWKIP. I had a lot of fun with the ladies of Loudon Needleworkers, and spun some pretty yarn on my Babe wheel. Still need to finish that skein & get photos. I’ll try to remember to do that when I get home from work tonight.
I didn’t do a lot today and it was wonderful! I went to my barony’s event, which was a low-key social day – lunch, chess tourney, silent auction, and socializing. I played with fiber tools & talked fiber geekery with others in my barony, and it was great! I wound off the blue/black yarn from the bobbin using a niddy-noddy, then later started a center-pull ball of the laceweight purple, using a nostepinde. A couple people were surprised I was able to spin such vastly different yarns on the same wheel. I need to rinse the blue/black & measure it (wip & yardage) so I can put it onto my ArtFire.com site. I need to finish winding off the laceweight so I can ply it – it will likely not be going onto ArtFire, though I don’t have any current plans for it. But, none of this is happening tonight. I’m contemplating a nap. Is it too early for bed?

Went to the MCHS thrift store during my work break. Picked out some great books & as I was about to check out, I saw this cuff, and had to have it! Lapis lazuli is my favorite gemstone, and I love the design – it will be great for SCA events! Sent across the cyberweb by BlackberryKristin Moran
