Charity knitting …

WIP Wednesday…on my needles.

I switched it up this week and started using large needles… making a garter stitch throw (in Oatmeal) that will  go to charity. There are enough projects my Stitch & Bitch work on, this one is going to: The VA Nursing Home.

The Rhinebeck Sheep & Wool Festival

Always a great time up at the Rhinebeck Sheep & Wool Festival. This is 5th year going …I always have blast. We carpool up there with some of my Stitch & Bitch chicks.

We go early, walk a lot, chow down a yum falafel & shop, shop, shop!

My mini haul from the Sheep & Wool festival (Rhinebeck, NY)

Our mini haul

I planned for my mini haul this past weekend. Having seen the prices last year I knew much of what I wanted would not be discounted. I bought a few skeins of baby Alpaca, so very soft, a hank of Miss Bab’s Yowza (Prince) washable Merino and some Mini Mochi. I plan on making cowls for my nieces and myself.

Also bought two large size bamboo hooks (size 12 & larger!) as well as Knitter’s Pride circular knitting needles (size 7 & 10).Some homemade soaps, two handmade mugs painted  for me and hubby), fabric, buttons, and two sets of earrings, some fabric and a few of the felted animals and such filled my bag. I managed to buy my favorite thing, a handbag!! Also bought a foldable tote in Leopard print.

Had a wonderful time with some of the ladies of my Stitch & Bitch at the festival and got to see a few Ravelry friends too!
