Long time to post!

Well my goodness!!! - It has been a long time since my last post and there is news to report.

In May some friends and I went to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. All I can say is WOW!!!! I had a great time and purchased a lot of wool and some silk for several projects. IT was a long day - but well worth the trip. More fiber than I have ever seen in one place. And did I buy the skein that was $92??? NOPE!!!! But I sure drooled over it.

I have been trying to knit Charlotte's web and had quite a bit of trouble getting her started. Thanks to the folks at Knitter's Review and the Charlotte's web ring - I think that I am on track now and am on row 31 after starting it over several times.

However, I have had to put that down so that I can do a test knit for a friend of mine. He is a great knitter and has been teaching classes at out local recreation department. He has designed a Balaclava that has been approved by our local reserve office for the Military in Iraq. He is going to be teaching it to a class next month and I am the guinea pig for the test knit and tweak. He has a website and is going to post it there for all to see and knit along with the approved colors and wool that it should be knit from. His website is:

Katie is doing fine - spoiled rotten and loves it. She is currently curled up pn the bed asleep as all good poodles should be.

My KR secret pal sent me a wonderful book on sweaters to knit and in the box was a ball for Miss Katie, which she promptly took and has been playing with every since.

Ok - gotta go for now.
