Looking On

So, those of you going to MDSW this weekend, I hope you have a great time. I’ll be home hanging out with Chappy. The weather this weekend won’t be nearly as nice as it was last year, so I don’t expect I’ll be sitting with my spinning wheel out on the deck tomorrow. I’m looking forward to all the reports as all of you happy fiber people stagger back to your computers.

For sheer spectacle, watching Janine’s Fair Isle project is going to be riveting.

050208--006 In the meantime, I’ve got a new, fiber-y book to admire this weekend. A Fine Fleece: Knitting with Handspun Yarns. I heard so many great things about it, I couldn’t resist.

Hey, even with money tight, you know I can’t resist a good book. In fact, there are a couple others there, too, including two current photography books. (You know, as opposed to that old “Idiot’s Guide” I read last week.) Understanding Exposure by Bryan Peterson, and The Digital Photography Book, Volume 1 by Scott Kelby (who wrote that Photoshop book I’ve been having such fun with). Not to mention ProBlogger.

Oh, and I tried on my sweater, and it’s coming along nicely. Phew!

Anyway, I hope all of you fiber-festival-goers have a wonderful time. And, really, I suppose I don’t realy have that much room for complaint. After all, I’ve done a sheep-and-wool festival already this season. Granted, it was a lot smaller and there wasn’t nearly as much to buy, but it was perfect anyway.

  1. A Fine Fleece just landed at my house, too. I can’t wait to sit down with it – I’m waiting until I have time to go through it slooowly. :o )

  2. I believe the appropriate phrase here might be quality vs. quantity. =)

  3. Whoa, you have lilacs! Ours are still in bud. And those Eliz Peters books look interesting… now if I can only remember them when I’m at the library!

  4. I wish I hadn’t come into town tonight. All I want to do is go sit at my wheel:)
    It is an annual past time for me to vicariously enjoy MDSW. I’m now to the point where I don’t feel left out. Everyone does such a great job of blogging it and it doesn’t cost me a dime;)
