Blurry Weeks!

Oh boy, I could not explain why I didn't update my blog. Last three weeks went so BLUR for me!!!! So many things happened at work that keep me very very very BUSY and less knitting time. Things at work finally are quiet down this week. Last two months are pretty rough for me with the allergies and colds. I felt so icky for six weeks with bad colds and allergies.


Let me warn you in advance.... a lot of PHOTOS to share with you!!!! Fun, fun, fun!!! I hope you will enjoy looking at the photos.

My third year at Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival on first weekend of May was FABULOUS as usual.

At first, I thought I was not able to attend this year due to campus crisis that I may require to be on campus over the weekend. Good thing that I was not needed to be on campus on Saturday but had to go back to work on Sunday.
I saw several knitbloggers at the festival. I recongized many faces there from reading their bloggers.











I was so thrilled to see Wendy there (blue sweater) I went over to see her and asked her to sign the book that she wrote.












My dear friend, Sue and DH were accompanying me












Awwww....aren't they cute!!!?
Look what I brought from MSWF

More sock yarns from Tess Designers Yarns.


Middle two yarns are for my Project Spectrum socks. Blue is for June and Purple is for July









I loveMorehouse Merino yarns soooooo much and brought two kits.














Two more sock yarns are for my August Project Spectrum.











Found several things in two books I really like to knit.












Knitting News..... like I said earlier, not much knitting to do this month but I start knitting sock for June Project Spectrum. Slow but I'm getting there! I don't think I will be able to finish the sock by May 31st but I'm optimistic to finish it this summer.
















Non-knitting but craft related news................

I used to love cross stitching for many years. I stopped doing it for two years since I become obsessed with knitting . I was so sick last week with bad colds again for three days. I was so restless last weekend. I didn't feel like knitting but want to do something with my hands. I looked through my craft room and found the cross stitching project that I brought from Longaberger Basket last year that I really want to make. Guess what, it took me three days to finish it. Last thing I need to do is working on backstitching all the details. I'm almost done and I'm so HAPPY!!!!















More KAL........

Geez.... I'm really out of control with knit-a-long! I have to admit that I'm such a "JOINER"!!! I don't know if I'm realistic but I don't want to miss out the opporunity.

Here are three summer activities I thought would be a lot of fun to join in on:

I joined The Amazing Lace Kal. I always want to knit the shawl but am afraid to try it. I'm going to challenge myself to make one! I have not decided which pattern I will knit. I need more time to do some research on each pattern and decide which one before this weekend.



I thought it would be fun to expand my creative skills on making pin cushions. I love to collect unique pin cushions. This month theme would be fruit. I have one that I made last year and am going to share it with you tomorrow.




I *HEART* Mason *Dixon book so much. I heard so much good things about the book and decided to order one for myself. I found several projects that I would love to knit!!!

I love seeing your pictures from Maryland Sheep and Wool! It was nice to meet you, even though the time was so brief! :)

I got the same colorway of the Tess yarn - that lovely blue/purple. I am planning to use it for Project Spectrum in July.

Best wishes,
Lolly
