Oh dear, I'm off-schedule yet again

Well, I really had the best intentions to post the beginning of the Sweet Peas socks this week, I really did! Then life got in the way again. We're heading out for a short vacation soon and there was lots of day-to-day stuff to be done before we can leave--like washing my clothes so I can pack them. And then there was the knitting to be packed, which is always the first thing I do when I'm heading out on a trip. Yep! I packed the Sweet Peas sock, so no stats on it and no pix. I CAN say that there was a total of 406 yds spun and they came out at 16 wpi, just like the Snake Plant yarn.

Hopefully, I'll get a chance to see some friends at the Finger Lakes Fiber Festival next weekend. I'll be the short chubby one with the dazed look on her face, wearing a Steelers shirt......stop me and say hello!

Have a nice vacation and enjoy the festival. I'll look forward to hearing from you when you get back and maybe seeing some photos ...

Be safe!

Do you know yet where you will be getting your bees for the spring? Maybe you could rescue a hive from a populated area. There's bee removal services that could probably get you a hive from an airport or someplace in a city where people don't want them.

Good luck and keep me informed.

Have a great weekend!

I've been keeping up with the Burgh Bees group inactively for two years while renovating the house. ( This winter I'll be looking into the details of beekeeping. Yes, they rescue and rehouse feral colonies. We'll see how my research and training goes this winter.

Have safe travels and enjoy the festival -- I'm jealous that I can't go. Can hardly wait to hear all about it!!!
