Wool Anyone

Img_2486 I have been an absent blogger, reader, commenter and for that I apologize.  Life has been a bit on the hectic side lately.  I amImg_2472 happy to be back.  Keith and I had a great time at the Estes Park Wool Market Img_2475 last Saturday.  We spent most of our time with the   animals.  A few of the goats…tImg_2530rhis one reminded me a bit of cousin iImg_2488t.  From there we headed to the Alpaca tent and had a most lovely chat with Diane from Falkor Ranch,  she mentioned that Img_2481_2 they are happy to have visitors so I have that on the agenda for later this summer.   I got the biggest kick out of this sign….  Img_2492

They were holding llama demonstrations most of the day but it was a bit hot to be in the sun for a long period of time. 

  And what would a wool market by without the sheep tent.  Keith madeImg_2502 fast friends with the Img_2512 biggest of the lot.  Some adorable twin lambs.

I couldn't resist the 2 month old angora rabbit.  Soooooo soft and these little girls thought so too. Img_2520 Img_2500

We had such a nice time.  And if you can believe it the only thing I bought was an autographed copy of "Cast On, Bet's Off".  I'll leave you with a picture of the 'canoes'  otherwise kImg_2529r nown as weaving shuttles.

The Knitting Report

This past weeks trip let me hand deliver Roza's Socks to my grandmother.  They fit very nicely and she Img_2397 seemed pleased with the result.  It was a nice pattern with lots of stretch and I have to admit I do like the way the Socks that Rock knit up.

After I finished these up I cast on The Twisted Flower socks in a lovely yellow and purple Lorna's Laces. I have just finished up the gusset on the Img_2394_2 first sock.

A while back Teyani asked people to post where they knit while they wait. Mine is usually on an airplane.  I was fortunate last week to have an entire exit row to myself on the way to Chicago, so I was able to spread out a bit. You can see the socks to be delivered in the bag.

Img_2402 Back to the airport we went this morning at 4 am to head down to North Carolina for an in law visit.  I am working in Raleigh this week,  so Keith and I decided it would be a great opportunity for a visit.  This was a late afternoon,  just before the storm picture.
