This was our third year going to Wine in the Woods, and this was the best year yet! There were some new wineries that joined the other regulars. The festival is also part craft/artisan fair, and I have never seen any fibery-related booths–maybe someone should get on that In previous years, I have come away with some lovely jewelry and accessories, but this year was all about the vino.
We got a lot of wine… it is less expensive to buy it at the festival, so that kind of justifies it, right? It also goes directly to the local winery. In the front of the picture, you can see the freshly made sangria. Gosh, that stuff is amazing. …and that tee shirt? I had to get it… it says "Squeeze Me – Make me Wine". Who could pass that one up?
Kris and I took it easy for the rest of the evening, knitting and watching our shows. Survivor ended pretty well. I am looking forward to next season’s location in Guatemala. Did anyone else hear them say that the survivors would be living in the ruins? I am not so sure about that… there has to be some sort of preservation for these Mayan archaeological sites… I guess CBS has some sort of deal with them, but I still am wary of the idea. We’ll see what happens there.
|So, Sunday was a fun day, and luckily, Monday turned out very well also! I met Donna dear for a yummy lunch at Strapazza, followed up by a quick trip to Dunkin Donuts/Baskin Robbins. Afterward, we headed down the street to All About Yarn. I had a $25 off frequent customer incentive, so I knew I had to find something… I could not let that money go to waste. I really like this shop–every time I go in I find new stuff and new lines that they are carrying. Their summer selections are on the forefront now, and they recently started stocking some Rowan yarns. I hope they continue this through the fall and winter months as those are the yarns that I really love…|
Today I found a great pattern and some yarn that was too good to pass by… 10 hanks of Tahki Cotton Classic in 3923 for the Southwest Trading Company’s Ballerina tank. I was close to getting the Bamboo yarn for this, but they did not have the color selection that the Tahki yarns had… so it was an easy choice for me
Now off to finish the dreaded second sleeve of Kris’s pullover… it is neverending, I swear…
