2014 Walnut Valley Festival

It seems like I wait patiently all year for this bluegrass festival.  I get to enjoy the outdoors camping, great live entertainment and hang with a good friend.  The temps were a little on the warm side and we had just one early morning light rain shower.  That great friend made up wonderful meals and my favorite adult beverages, Margarona's.  We swam in the river, rode our bicycles and spent each cool morning and night around a campfire...just plain good fun.
Around the Campsite
 Easy Friendships
 Lots of Knitting
 A Great Fiber Vendor
Until next year, Winfield!

Woven Cotton

Taking a knitting break to dabble in weaving.  I actually found this primitive handmade loom and tools many years ago in Taos, NM.  It's been sitting in my craft room more or less as decoration.  Just another hobby maybe someday I will have more time to devote to.  In the meanwhile, I made up a couple small facecloths.  One for myself and one to gift to a good friend who is wanting to get into weaving.

Happy Birthday, pretty girl Pearl.  She liked wearing a festive hat and really loved her dog party cupcakes.

Scarf Cowl

So in love with cowls these days and I think I've found the best pattern yet.  I will be gifting a lot of these but this one is all mine in Plymouth wool Gina.
