Has it been a week already? - Jen


Ok, quick entry cause a lot is going on and I want to get outside and plant stuff. Went to Hemlock Fiber Festival with Gwen on Saturday. Very inspired by projects, saw this huge sock project (photo) and here is the blog about it- big-sock.blogspot.com. Haven’t had chance to look at it cause too busy, but feel free to go and look and tell me about it. Thought Lisa might be interested. Also saw many new and old friends. Going with Gwen was fun cause she is just getting started and is trying to decide what she wants to get into. I think needle felting is going to win out.

Kitty is doing fine, named her Trixie. She bites and scratches too much, but v. cute and playful. And healthy, thank God.

Soccer game last night vs. Akron, they killed us, but Andrew scored a goal which made me feel great for some reason. You know when you wake up in the morning and feel happy but can’t remember why then all of a sudden it hits you? That happened this morning with the goal. I’m pathetic.

Last thing, we are adding on to the barn, another 20 x 24, so yesterday I had the task of running around to lumber places to source materials. It was a gorgeous day. Saved for the end the task of sourcing siding to match our original barn, built by Ivan Yoder and his boys. We cleverly deduced he bought it from one of our local Amish sawmills. So that was pretty fun, driving around our Amish community trying to find the sawmills. I envied the gardens, laughed at the chickens, and got the wits scared out of my by the elephantine horse that quietly sauntered up to the fence I was standing next to where two seconds ago there was nothing. Those horses are surprisingly stealthy.

Gotta go, have a great weekend!

I was interested and I did go look. I can't imagine casting on all those stitches, what a nightmare. I found the perfect project for your yarn I got for my birthday, http://www.cosmicpluto.com/blog/?p=443
I need to get one more skein of Petunia and I will be ready to go!
Congrats on the goal!
