Where did the summer go? For us it went camping, it went to the beach and it went way too quickly. Next week is fair week here and then it is back to school for the kids. I am torn between wanting my alone time back, yet knowing I will miss them. I dread the schedule, yet I crave it.
I attended 2 fiber festivals so far this year, One was at Castle Farms in Charlevoix and the other was the Michigan Fiber Festival. I absolutely stink at remembering to take pictures, but I did photograph some stash acquisition.

This is Briar Rose Robusta that I am using to knit the Retro Cardigan (Ravelry link). The colors are actually much deeper than this. Hopefully my progress picture on the cardi will show the color better later. So far I am only on the yoke, but it is going quickly. Her handpaints are so gorgeous and I am loving how it is knitting up so far.
Well, blogger is being very annoying and only letting me post one picture, so I will have to post again about my other gorgeous purchases. I have some other finished knits to share as well, but I guess they will have to wait for another day.
This will give me the incentive to post more often right?
