My weekend was a very full and wonderful despite another bout with the white stuff. Seems that most of New England has now been tricked or treated to a dose of October snow. Today, being that we've made it through the season's first, we have a warm and sunny day. After my usual trip to the diner Friday night for a fish and chip dinner (without the chips) I came home to ply up the mystery wool I'd cleaned, carded and spun during the week. I wanted to see what it looked like before I finished it up.
It was a good way to spend the remainder of the evening. The rest of the weekend was all penciled in. Since I type SO SLOWLY and would really like to get this post out today, I'm going to cut to the chase, skip the details, and give you the photo essay in a nutshell kind of thing. Here goes...
Saturday afternoon spin-in at RI Handspun. This stuff (yeah, I know, Barbie wants her yarn back), I love it. I love that sparkle, the alpaca, and the silk. It's fun. It may just make some little girl happy, or maybe just me.
Saturday night, in the snow, I headed over to the Vietnamese restaurant for dinner before the all Mozart concert at the Philharmonic. Best concert in a very long time.
Sunday morning, Cindy and I head to Portland Maine. After a four year search, I was rewarded several weeks ago by a phone call from a woman wanting to sell this to me.
I'll leave you with these.. in between office work there is this..
