Arrived home Thursday night and performed some mad sewing skills for the prom. My son's (darling) date donated the stole/scarf that came with her gown, and I turned it into a coordinating vest on Friday before and after driving to Logan Airport to retrieve The Big Guy from a long business trip. Also went to Ikea when My Guy's travel plans were delayed.
I remarked to my husband on Saturday night that I hadn't had a moment to get all giddy about New Hampshire Sheep and Wool. Carded some wool to spin for the NH Spinners and Dyers Guild Demo.
Scored some Green Mountain pumpkin wool - I love the depth of color they achieve by using a grey twist as a base.
Picked up Stitchy's book (headache-hilarious) and was able to visit with her briefly. Stitchy picked up a (heavy) knitting machine.
Leslie Wind, a twist-on fastening scarf pin. It's for when I need to be spectacular. (note: my Mom made the scarf. I know, right?). I was so tempted by Leslie's silver darning needles (featured in Vogue Knitting!), but I do very little seaming in my knits.
Mad Color's Indulgence in Pharaoh's gold. The label says superwash merino, but I doubt it. I think it's made of butter. And a trampoline. Mad Color used to be known as Serenknity. I think we can all see that a name change was in order (especially if you've seen the booth). This will be a hat, possibly a cowl, but more likely a hat.

Today I could not get out of my own way. Tomorrow will have more bounce.
