NY Sheep and Wool was great. Much better than last year. Of course this year did not involve spending countless hours on a cramped and smelly bus.

Also, I bought a new spinning wheel. I wish I had thought to take a picture of it. It's so adorable. It's in the process of being made for me right now. How awesome is that?

In addition to the wheel, I bought a little bit of yarn and fiber (heh heh heh, well, a little bit by my standards). And some wine. To fuel the crafting, of course.

I did show SOME self control and did not, in fact, buy an alpaca fleece. Or a fleece of any sort. Oh sure, if they had taken credit cards, we totally would have, but that's not the point!

Has it really been that long since I posted? I guess so. I swear, I have a good reason.

I've had the plague. Or good as. Sinus infection/ear infection/bronchitis combo has pretty much had me out of commission for the last 3 weeks. It has not been a fun time.

On the plus side, I am off to Rhinebeck. Yay! What little money I have not spent on antibiotics I intend to use to comfort myself with the purchase of fiber. Yeah. That'll work.
