On Tuesday, my mom and I took a trip to Towson, MD so she could get fabric for more pillows and placemats for Seabliss. While we were there, we stopped at Black Sheep Yarn Shop in Cockeysville.  After buying $160 worth of yarn, Christmas shopping is officially done! Now it’s the annual knitting marathon to get things finished by Christmas! Here are some sneak peeks of what I’ve been working on…

I’m using Noro Silk Garden and Cascade Yarn Eco Alpaca for this. It almost seems crazy that such a simple pattern can produce such a gorgeous result!

This is going to be for my mom. I’m using Blue Heron Soft Twist Rayon that I got at a trunk sale at Lovelyarns in Hampden, MD. I think I’m going to go up a needle size so the leaves show up better.

I’ve got homemade tomato sauce and meatballs in the crockpot and it smells soooo good! Once it’s finished, I’ll post pictures and the recipe!

Last weekend we went to a craft show at Quiet Waters Park in Annapolis, MD. The show started out pretty slow (probably due to the weather), but picked up as the day went on. The volunteer venders were really nice and kept coming around to see if we needed to take breaks during the day. I was talking to one volunteer and found out that she is a weaver and I just got my mom’s old loom. I haven’t set it up yet but the woman gave me a great beginner book and was very helpful!

I finally realized that the color swap button on my camera has been pushed for a while and that’s why all of the stuff looks pink that I’ve been photographing lately. It’s not supposed to be pink, even though I think it looks pretty cute!

The highlight of the show was meeting Elise Miller, a spinner and fiber artist based out of Bowie, MD. Not only are her designs beautiful, but she helped me a lot in figuring out what type of wheel I want and she even helped me spin my own little ball! I’ll take some pics of the little baby ball and post them soon!

Last weekend, we went to Annmarie Garden- a sculpture park in Solomons, MD for their annual artsfest. The park itself was amazing, and the show was even better. It was packed with 160 venders, great food, and some kick ass folk music. My mom set up her Seabliss tent and I snapped some pictures before they opened. Solomons is SUCH a cute town and I would be so happy to go back and visit someday. It’s crazy how many cute towns there are within a mere 2 hour drive from home!
