Weekends


Weekends are for memory making, 
relaxing and enjoying quiet moments of our days.  
If you would like, please share your weekend moments 
in the comments section of the blog.


Saturday morning my husband and I headed off early in the morning for the Endless Mountains Fiber Festival.  The ride is long and lovely.  After we drive through two cities we are surrounded by mountains.  Pennsylvania is quite beautiful.

I enjoyed browsing the lovely yarns and this year there were quite a few pottery stalls!  I don't know how you shop these kind of events, but I have to go through once and then go back and buy.  I wish I could just buy on the spot but I question if that is what I really really want.

However going through more than once is double the fun.


I did buy a skein of red wool for a soon-to-be scarf for my son.  I'm not sure what pattern, but I do know he requested dark red.  Mission accomplished!


I love the warning sign and there is nary a horse to be seen.


The festival is held at a fairgrounds and all sorts of knitters and spinners, all ages and skill levels commune and enjoy their love of fiber arts.  I cannot imagine not having a hobby.


Saturday evening we had dinner out on by the pool.  We took in the sights and sounds because the pool was closed today.  So many leaves are dropping into the pool and since the school year started no one has been swimming in it.

My husband is sad.

I'm excited we are one step closer to FALL.


How was your weekend?

  2. My weekend was much like yours: A visit to a sheep and wool festival. I have to walk through once, too, before I hand over any cash!

  3. I couldn't be happier about two cool mornings this weekend. Would you believe 68 degrees when we left for church? Whoo - hoo! Now, if I could heal up the arthritis in my thumb joint, I could get going on fall and holiday knitting. Patience - I'm practicing.

  8. Sounds like a fun weekend! I shop the same way at those types of events. We drained our pool this weekend. It's been in place 15 years and needs a new liner (if we decided to keep it). I love fall but then quickly long for spring when the cold starts in. Thanks for sharing your beautiful pictures!

  10. My weekend was spent on a yarn crawl! SLO yarn crawl in San Luis Obispo was so much fun and I got to see the Never Not Knitting yarn shop! I'm so excited that fall is coming, that means I can wear knit pieces. -Sierra

  13. Dumb question here: What does that sign mean? How come there were no horses? What a fun way to pass the day and I didn't know you had a pool or access to one? Cool!
