Craftacular Room

We moved 3 months ago and for the last 4 months I haven't been able to find a single crafting item. Why is it the thing we love is always the last to get our attention?
Well no more, yesterday I removed ever single item, yes you heard me right, every ball of yarn, stay needle, piece of felt and scrap of paper with an idea on it and got organized. The result: my very own Craftacular Room! Yipee! Crafting here I come

Sheep! Wool! Maryland!

Katy's surprise yarn for me

mega sale cherry hill yarn

Cotton with black threads
At the beginning of May Mary loaded Molly, Katy and I into her car and trucked us off to the wonderful land of Sheep, Wool and Maryland: AKA Maryland Sheep and Wool festival. We all desperately needed some good girl time and some and had a blast. Now for those who don't know it the Maryland Sheep and Wool is the Big Bertha of sheep and wool festivals. It is huge! and on that May weekend it was also really hot. I admit that touching yarn in 90 plus weather is just no fun. Somehow we all gravitated to fine wool, go figure.
Above is some of my bootee. I am happy to report that I have several projects going with various sheep and wool yarns.
My favorite is A Katy's surprise yarn for me. At breakfast of the second day Katy and I decided to exchange $20 and see what yarn the other picked out for them. We had a few things in the mix for example I hate knitting mohair so no 100% mohair for me. What I got was the lovely hand dyed, hand spun yarn above. Currently the yarn and I are in conference about what it is suppose to become. It isn't a ton of yardage. At first I thought leg warmers but I would have to add another yarn. Fingerless gloves for a overly AC office? I am not sure but will keep you all posted on the plan. Any ideas are always welcome.

Been Gone for Awhile

Life has been a little too much of too much lately which has meant it is hard to keep up with my blog. But rest assured I am still making lots of stuff! And i might even managed to tell you all about it now that my camera cable is permanently living in my office drawer.
In the mean time...I got a package in this box and when I went to recycle it this little note is what I found- I love it! and it pretty much sums up how I feel right now
