I've been behind in sharing my treasures from the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival. I wasn't able to attend myself, but I sent my sister with some money and a mission and she came back successful! Item #1 on my wish list was a Jenny the Potter mug. I love this mug so much. It is almost embarrassing how much I look forward to my morning coffee because of how much I love it. If you have one of these mugs I am sure you share in my dorkiness excitement.
Item #2 (below) was a skein of Icelandic Wool. I've been searching for it at the past few fiber festivals, but each time I find the booths to be sold out. I had a feeling I was going to have to buy a fleece. But my sister scored this beautiful skein for me!
As far as knitting goes I am full steam ahead on my never ending Spire. I have been working on the knitted on edging and I am pushing myself to only work on this until it is done!
However since my Spire isn't easy to lug around with me. I have been working on a few of my own patterns. I have not been sharing the finished pictures because I am going to wait to release the patterns first. I was planning on releasing the patterns in the Fall, but now I'm thinking about giving my samples as gifts for my kids teachers, which means I might need to get these puppies photographed and patterns releases ahead of schedule. We'll see. In the mean time here is a sneak peek. I'm not giving more away than that for now :)
As for reading I am still listening to Outlander. I still love it and I can't wait to start the next book in the series!
