It's been over a month since my trip with my best friend Debbie. We went to Old Fort NC all by ourselves and it was an 8 hr drive including our stop at Cracker Barrel of course. Debbie did all the driving and I was so proud of her, but she did say a bad word a couple of times. LOL

We went to the workshops at Pisgah Yarns in Old Fort. The Peaches & Creme yarn was so awesome and the colors were so intense! The workshops were held at Crooked Creek Firehouse and everything was so great. We had the best time and are already planning for next years workshops. So here's some photos at the workshop and no I'm not in any of them.
The ladies on each end are from Operation Toasty- Toes (Back row-Left to right) Maile- Knitting classes (Designer), Cindy - Loom Weaving teacher, Flo -Hostess with mostest(Princess Peaches of Pisgah), Brian -crochet classes(Designer)

Here's a few of the ladies in one of Maile's knitting classes on Tues. They were on a lunch break or another cake break. We had two birthday cakes for Gerry's(Brian's brother) birthday trying to make him older than he already is. SSHH I'm not telling his age, but he doesn't look it.
Here's Flo cutting the cake from Monday! It was so yummy and so was the purple one from Tues.
Here's my friend Debbie and Brian. She will probably kill me for putting this on here for the whole world to see! Oh well what are friends for, and especially when you have been for over 40 years..

AUGUST Came & Went!

Wow!! Where did August go? I usually try to post at least once a month and shame on me, no post in August. Well I have been knitting lots of things and have finished quite a few too. Of course I've started more projects than I've finished. My list of things to do is getting longer too. Well I better get busy putting some posts together on this here blog, before you all get bored and don't come back. LOL Ok here goes!
First of all I want to put a picture of the beautiful scarf I'm doing.

I started this scarf in Old Fort, NC at the first knitting ,crocheting and weaving workshops by Pisgah Yarns. It was amazing and so much fun! I met lots of people that I have been chatting with on Ravelry and it was so cool!!I will post some more photos and more info at a later date. This scarf was designed by
Maile Mauch and one of many she has designed. You can get them at Pisgah Yarn & Dyeing Company. The Cable one I'm doing is done in Rayon Super Petalspun and it is so soft!! I love the the color which is Teak. I will put a progress bar up so you kept track of it and make sure I'm not slacking.
Here's the Reptile set from the Crochet class with Brian.
I did the turtle while in NC and did the cloth and back-scrubber when I got home. Gave it to my grandson Braden and he loves it
