It's been such a hectic couple of weeks. Kindergarten Programs, concerts, performances, awards ceremonies... And some really hot and humid weather thrown in. Needless to say, not a lot of knitting has gone on, although the red mohair shawl I've been working on only needs to be bound off, and I did knit a chevron bookmark for the Words & Bookmark Swap. I do have pictures of what I sent to my swap partner, Jackie, in the UK, but until I know she's gotten it, you'll just have to wait a little bit...
BUT, I did get my package from her today, so I'll give you a couple of pictures of what she sent. The guidelines of the swap basically were to knit or sew a bookmark and send it with a pre-1960's written book that somewhere mentions knitting. Jackie sent a lovely crocheted bookmark, "A Tale of Two Cities" by Charles Dickens, Jackson's of Picadilly Pure White Chinese Silvertip Tea (which sounds REALLY yummy!), Bronnley English Fern Luxury Soap, Green & Black's Organic Chocolate Collection, and the most lovely blue Jitterbug Yarn by Collinette:
Tomorrow I'm going to a Spin In and Fiber Fair at the Black Bear Winery near Binghamton. I'm hoping to get to meet some local spinners and maybe get to try a wheel or two. I've been wanting to try a wheel since coming home from the Men's Spring Knitting Retreat. I'll take the camera and get some pics!
I also bought an iMac last week, so I have to say that at the moment, I'm a pretty happy guy. I hope all is well with you, and have a great weekend!
