So last weekend was the weekend of Festivals. First up was the Great Lakes Fiber Festival (not rows of bowls of Cherrios like my dad pictured, but animal fiber). I went to the Ravelry meetup but it was really more of a Cleveland Knits West meetup. That was more than ok, though, since it was so nice to see everyone! And even though I was tempted by all of the wonderful yarn and surrounded by the best of enablers I stuck to my budget. Which was literally an envelope full of my husband’s poker winnings from the night before. Here’s how much yarn a night of poker can get you:
6 skeins of Lamb’s Pride Bulky in Avacado (will probably become this):
And one 8oz braid of Creatively Dyed Wool/Seacell roving:
And while I had a great deal of self-control at the festival I’ve had none since I’ve been home:
Yeah. I’m halfway through that roving and it’s only been a week.
Next up was the Greek Festival:
The baby had a ball – she hung out in her little carrier and people watched while we ate gyros and honey balls (really should find out the real name for those).
Mmmmm gyro baby.
She even posed for a family picture:
This weekend is going to be much more subdued. Big plans include playing basketball, going for a walk, dying yarn (my new base yarn? Is AWESOME. Sucks up dye like you wouldn’t believe), watching the Cavs game, and thinking that my friend Sarah made the right decision.
