Weekends are for memory making,
relaxing and enjoying quiet moments of our days.
If you would like, please share your weekend moments
in the comment section with a link to your blog.
This weekend we went to the Endless Mountain Fiber Festival. I love the sights and sounds of this festival. There are the animals that are fluffy soft and adorable, each one beckoning us to visit and pet. My husband took some photos then I took some. He is patient while I browse and shop the stalls. He joined in the spirit of the festival by requesting a "thin scarf". Thin as in fingering weight thin. I am only too eager to knit something and then we proceed to look for the yarn for his scarf. He chose a dark purple that will look fantastic.
I am drawn to mute greens and yellows and oranges and browns....Earth tones. So while I was there I had to buy something but I was trying not to buy "my" colors. Branch out from my comfort color zone.
I bought a pale lilac in fingering weight (so not my color) and then thought once I was home what was I going make! Luckily after a phone call with my son, he requested a hat in a light purple (YES!). I already have some ideas for some knitting for the newlyweds. She sometimes reads the blog so I won't say much more.
My weekend also had:
:: a packed lunch :: clothes shopping :: finding the best pair of jeans :: then deciding they are the worst pair of jeans :: cantaloupe :: knitting :: photography with the big camera :: Dr. Who (swoon!) :: vegetable soup with grilled cheese sandwiches :: knitting with friends :: a walk in 68 degrees (double swoon!!)
Thanks for the lovely comments on the last post!
How was your weekend?
