Well, I don't know how many hits I'll get on my blog today or this weekend cause it seems like alot of the blogs I read, everyone and their brother are going to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival (or is that Wool and Sheep). This is the first time I've ever heard of it but it seems pretty cool by the website. I'm actually only 4 hours away from that....but I'm not much of a distance driver....I'm a distance passenger....or as my sweetie man calls it, his "nag-avator"! Hey, I'm first to admit I'm a bit of a back seat driver...just a bit.
Anyway, been working on the kitchen still. You probably won't see pics of the finished product for at least a week or two. The weather in PA is perfect for painting. 60-70 degrees during the day and 40-50 at night. With the windows open those nasty fumes go right outside.
I did spent a good two hours tho untangling dye your own yarn from Knit Picks. I don't know what the heck I did...but I did it Good! It was so tangled! I thought I would open the package and it would unfold into this perfect hank that I would just straighten out a bit....but it didn't...or I didn't do it right. Anyway....after I untangled it and rolled it into a ball...I wrapped it around a chair top for a perfectly formed hank ready for dying in the kool aid tomorrow! (in between starting the other half of my Kitchen painting) So I'll take pics of that project and you can see the results. Hey, maybe it's not as exciting as the Maryland Festival....but what do ya want for a small town blogger in PA! Okay...I'm heading off to dreamland....catch ya on the flip-flop!
