First of all, I have missed blogging. As we all are trying to take one day at a time and get through our busy lives, stressful moments, and tap into our creativity sometimes not all can get done. At first I was trying to find out why my blog was not up and running and I found out. That was fixed. In the meantime, life can get in the way and not all can get accomplished. But I hope in my absence you have been busy having fun with your projects. I have had lots of fun teaching my classes and enjoying meeting new and returning knitters and crocheters. So now that I got that out of the way, what is going on?
I can't believe another month of May is around the corner. You know what that means or maybe you don't? It is time again for the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. This is their 38th year and the event will be held on May 7th and 8th, 2011. Click on the link to find out more. Have you ever been to one before? You haven't? Well, you might be new in the world of knit and crochet and this just might be your time that you would like to expand and venture out to a couple of the events that happen during the year. You might not live in a distance that you want to travel to this event, but there are so many other events going on during the year and there might be one near you and you don't even know it.
If you would like to see pictures of this event, go to my earlier blog post for
May 2 and May 3, 2010 to find out what it is all about. Then you can check with your local yarn shop and see if they are hosting a bus trip to the event. Also, you could check with your local knit/crochet group to see if they might be hosting a trip or they know of a place that is hosting a trip. You could also get a car group together or one other friend to take the trip with you and go. This is a great way to see that knit and crochet is not going anywhere but that it is booming and people are having so much fun with it. I won't be going this year but I hope you will be able to go or attend an event near where you live. It is all about tapping into the needle art world, meeting new people, picking out new projects, and of course building your stash just a little bit with some special finds of fibers.
