Color Obsession


OK it's really called "Color Affection" but for some reason 
I became obsessed when knitting it and could not put it down.  
At first it was because this shawl/scarf thingy was unfolding so quickly.  
And it helps that Bugga yarn is so soft and also likes being obsessed over.

3 Skeins of Bugga
I wanted to see the first section done.  
I wanted to feel the second section done.


Then the third section began - 267 stitches to over 400 stitches.  
I think the designer left the final stitch count out to lessen 
any discouragement seeing that large a number of stitches might bring.  
But I was committed now and a new obsession took over 
because the though of any more garter stitch had to end.  
I like garter stitch but it seems just not as much as others.  
Any garter stitch craving I had is gone for now.

Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival


On May 6th, Susie (aka KnittingKnoobie) and her very kind husband Glenn, 
took me along on their trip to check out the 
39th Annual Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival.
Glenn is not the kind of husband you trade in - he's a keeper.
I could never do the fair the same justice that 
Glenn does with his beautiful slide shows.  
So just mosey on over *here* to get a real feel 
for our day in wool spa heaven.
