Can you even believe it! One month since the last post. Where does the time go??? Here we are three months into the new year and I feel like I can't even keep up. I know that all the snowfall that we've had this year has a lot to do with it. I ended up with aches and pains that I am still trying to recover from. I have been knitting ever chance I can get. I am currently working on the 198 yds of Heaven Shawl. I have started it in a few different yarns, trying to see which one I like best. I am also trying to finish some already started(and should have been finished by now) projects .
Here on the east coast Spring has sprung. We had a gorgeous week weather wise. I am so happy to have spring. It was up in the high 60's and low 70's all week. It has almost made me forget about the trying winter that we just had.

Yesterday we attended our second HomeSpun Party in Savage Mill. It was a blast. I enjoyed seeing some of the same vendors from last year. Our favorites were Folktale Fibers, Cosy Knits, and of course The Sanguine Gryphon. We met up with Arthella and Cheryl and got there around 11am and was able to get a good spot in line with only a few in front of us. I always enjoy seeing what everyone is working on. We never mind waiting when we have our projects with us. The doors opened around Noon and we headed over to Sanguine to see if there was any Bugga♥ and their was...we Scored! Everyone had the same idea and within seconds it was a mad house grabbing all the yarn. I am very happy with my 3 skeins of Bugga(I started out with 5). Chelette scored 6 skeins of Bugga. Next stop was Cosy Knits. She has the most beautiful handspun. Then off to Folktale. Once I visited all my favorites, I then could take my time and visit some of the other vendors. I loved being outside on the porch where the weather was simply beautiful.

The best part was seeing some of my favorites peeps. My hat goes off to BunnySquirrel for all her hard work. This year was a big success. I hope she was able to get some sleep after-wards.
It's always nice to Somebunnyslove, and Jessica they was working really hard. I soon ran into Carol, Evelyn, Ava, Shelly and Sandra, Connie, Barbara, Deb, and Deb, Debbie and Susan, Deb, Jana, Tiaree, Melodye, and Pam, Karida and Jillsey, and Jennifer. I am sure I have forgotten to mention someone.

I was pretty good at not over buying yarn this year. I am going to wait until MDSW before I buy anymore yarn.(that's the plan anyway). I'll let you know how it goes.

I guess you could say I have been way behind in posting, sorry about that. I really need to get caught up. And when I find my camera that has been lost for months now, I will post some pictures of our latest projects.
Happy Spring♥

Good to hear from you. I'm so happy for you all that the winter mess is finally gone.

Find that camera soon so we can see all the goodies you've been working on.

It was great to see you ladies, too! That's probably my favorite part of events like Homespun - getting to see all the local knitters.

OK, yeah, the awesome yarn doesn't hurt. :)

CHo Meir said...

That's right, save it all up and go broke @ MS&W!

cici said... can say that again♥

@Trillian..see I knew I would forget someone. It was great to see you

@CHo Meir...I hope I can go with a plan and stick to it this year for MDSW♥

Ava said...

it was good to see you too, Cici! I bought my first Bugga and I'm loving it!

cici said...

@Ava,,,it was my first too! Looks like we chose the same colorway again♥

Libby said...

Glad to hear from you again! I missed you both. Looks like we're bound to see some yummy projects in the future with all those gorgeous yarns.

Happy Spring!

Ria said...

That sounded like fun! I have to ait until next year to hit MDSW - my daughter has a big county track meet that weekend, but she's a senior - so she'll be off to college next year and Curt says he'll go with me.

Don said...

Yep. It has been awhile. LOL! Good to know that everything is well, although I do follow the both of you on Twitter. So I know all is well.

Good to see that you enjoyed yourself at the HomeSpun Party.

cici said...

@Ria,,I was thinking seriously about missing MDSW this year, because I still have yarn from the past 2. This year I am going to stick to a budget.

@Don,,I have cut back on internet time, I think I get more done. I have twitter but don't use it very much

Glad you had a great time at Homespun Party.

I think the snow & sewing have prevented me from knitting. My sewing buddy and I are thinking about doing a cardigan knit along next month. The Loft has a few knit cardigans that I'm trying not to buy... so I need to get my knitting on.

Thanks for the beautiful compliment on my ensemble.

cici said... are welcome! I learned to sew early in life, but didn't stick to it. I don't know why I became so impatient with sewing. Now I would like to get back into it. Your work is such an inspiration to me♥

Hi Cici and Chelette,
Hope to you at the MDSW this year. I have not knitted much of anything this year, but hope to get my mojo back soon. Sounds like the Homespun Party was fun. Nothing like that around here that I know of.
