Wonderful time was spent this past week at a quilting retreat! I had a wonderful time...and managed to get quite a few things accomplished. Photos next week...I promise.

Last Saturday, I went to a huge yarn sale - At Yates Farm...Bought ten hanks of worsted weight wool - each hank was $3.50! Bought some really pretty stuff to make a purse, a shawl, and a pair of stripped socks. I'll show you the yarn as soon as I get it wound up into cakes - or manage to take photos of the hanks.

Today, drove down to Brattleboro, VT - it is only about 42 miles from home. Traveled down the interstate but came home on Route 5 - and must say it was a gorgeous drive. Went to the Southern Vermont Fiber Event - it was a small gathering of farm owners, knitters, and spinners. Not much actual yardage for sale - mostly items that were already knit, felted, or woven. But, there were beautiful things to look at!

Sounds like a very nice time. This is the best time of year to be driving around isn't it? I love the Fall in New England!
