I kept thinking "Once school starts things will slow down..."
But between working late, football practices and games and the other household stuff I have to do every weekend, blogging has taken a backburner.
Last weekend was especially hectic. But I managed to escape for a few hours with my buds Chris and Jen to check out the New Jersey Sheep and Fiber Festival in Ringoes, NJ.
Ringoes is the part of New Jersey you didn't think existed. Beautiful farms and farmstands, and, well strip malls, everywhere.
It reminds me of home, but with less mountains.
Anyway--this fiber festival isn't as ginormous as Rhinebeck or even MDS&W but it's still a good time.
Lots of great sheep and goats and llamas and alpacas--oh my!
My favorite was, because it's an election year, the Romney*.
I'll be honest though, I reaaaalllly hate spinning Romney fleece. Probably as much as I hate that greasy used-car-salesman-come-presidential-candidate. Ha ha!
My haul was modest--one skein of yarn and some vintage buttons from this lady whose booth we discovered late in the day. I honestly could have spent all day poring through her buttons!
And believe it or not--that yarn has already turned into an FO!
I'll save what it became for another blog post, when I have the time and energy to post again!
