No Such Thing As Too Much Yarn...
Well, such is my belief.
Atticus inspects some of the new additions, and gives them 2 paws up! Not everything is shown, 'cause, well that would be too many pictures and that would be, well, embarassing.
But what a day! I spent this past Saturday with Anne and Lorraine at the Kitchener-Waterloo Knitters' Fair.
A great picture of Anne and Lorraine, chatting at the She Ewe Knits booth.
Did you check out the pictures on Lorraine's blog? She's got all the goods on display - the Twisted Tradition designs and all of the Jamieson's that Anne showcased. And a silly picture of me giggling away while demonstrating 2-handed Fair Isle knitting.
I myself picked up "Alcea", from Jamieson's latest Simply Shetland 3.
And other stuff. Lots of other stuff...
Lorraine, showing me the correct way to wear a beret.
I on the other hand, do not look too fetching in that type of hat...
She's wearing the beret and scarf from her "Fair Rosamund" design.
It was a fabulous day Knitsters! Saw all sorts of neat stuff, met some interesting people, and supported some great, small "cottage industry" type yarn retailers from both sides of the border. I was only too happy to lend my support...
And, I think Anne converted one lady over to the traditional knitting side... Heh heh... Reel them in with a twisted design, and the next thing you know it's Fair Isle all the way...
Back at Work
Always a ton 'o' fun...
And back to the Gym
I lazed around a bit too much this summer, so it's now time to get back to a regular schedule! I stick exclusively to classes, and will be heading back to Meditation Yoga on Wednesdays after sporadic attendance over the summer, and maybe a Back Strengthening class on Thursdays. My theory on going to the gym - if I can't do it away from the gym, then I won't do it. In other words, I can do yoga or strengthening exercises at home, but I don't have circuit machines in my basement. So I stick to the yoga and the like.
Can you imagine how buff we'd be if knitting were exercise? No, jumping up and down and throwing things against the wall doesn't count.
"Hey, check out Chaos' new little sister! I think she's kinda cute, but she's a girl so she probably has cooties."
"Aw geez Mom... now everyone'll know I secretly like the little guy... Must remember to smack him upside the head next chance I get."
