The Sheep has returned to the keyboard.

20 May

After a very long hiatus from my computer but not my knitting.  I am back with a new look and a new blog site.

Lots of current fun things to share.  My most recent adventure was the annual Paw Sox Stitch N’ Pitch Baseball game in Rhode Island.

Sadly no pictures, what was I thinking.  It was my very first Stitch n’ Pitch.   I had a lovely time and of course ate the mandatory hot dog.  I didn’t win any prizes,  but it was a whole different knitting venue and I would recommend it.

Also went to WEBS in Northhampton, MA annual tent sale, held in May.

All I can say is get there early and plan on at least a gazillion folks to shop with you.  I went with 2 carloads from one of my knitting groups.  The sales were really great, but as I was totally overwhelmed, I managed to only come away with a couple of skeins of  Spud and Chloe yarn. 

We did have a fabulous late lunch at Red Robin nearby where I was introduced to a Bonsai Burger with grilled pineapple.  Super Yum!  I  just went online to check my spelling of Bonsai and can you believe it, someone has recreated the recipe in their home kitchen and posted it.  Oh the wonders of the Internet.

My next planned adventure is the Massachusetts Sheep and Wool Festival Memorial Day Weekend, where I will finally have my camera along.  This will be my first sheep and wool for 2010.  I understand it is on the small size,  unlike Maryland and Rhinebeck, both of which I have been to and love.  But a nice one just the same, so stay tuned for some good pics, stash acquisition, etc. on that one.

Currently am knitting a very secret project, which I will post pics of in the future.

One of my most recent finished and actually photographed projects was the Snowy Woods Sweater by Cap Sease (a Bohus Sweater) from The newest Green Mountain Spinnery Book, 99 Yarns and Counting. 

This was my first sweater knit in one piece in the round.  I am so hooked on this method.  no seaming.  Pattern is very well written.  Yarn used was Jo Sharp Silk Road Tweed purchased at the annual JCA Warehouse Sale in Townsend, MA.

~Well let’s hope I have an easier time on WordPress.  Will add more features to my blog as I learn them.  Stay tuned!
