A Cranking Good Time
I leave in a week and a half for the Black Sheep Gathering in Eugene, Oregon, and Randy, who got me signed up for this adventure, was there yesterday as well. She and her daughter, another spinner and teenage daughter and two more spinners from the Bay Area are going on the train as well, so we got to discuss plans, impressions, etc. Randy has made it to Black Sheep the four previous years, and likes the animal events too... we are looking forward to watching them the days we don't have our sock knitting class. We also discussed possible shopping....
I plan to felt up several items later this week, including the infamous travel bag, just in need of a few, last strappy details. I have also managed to finish a summery scarf out of Skacel Hip Hop to put in the shop, and hope to get two more pair of sandals ready before it is my day to work there this coming Friday... I will take pictures too then!
Thanks for the kind comments on my speech... I was amazed to get several compliments as I traveled around my tiny town today. This is new to me; I am comfortable as a public speaker but didn't expect any kudos. Keep thinking to myself, "they must really mean it; if they didn't like it they would just not say anything!"
REMINDER - the contest is still open until the end of the month, so write me to enter.
