I remember every year on the first day of school, the first writing assignment was, What I Did on My Summer Vacation.
My writing piece was always about family camping or road trips to Michigan or Illinois to visit family friends.
Summer 2019, started on a high note with a road trip to Woollinn, Ireland’s Yarn Festival in Gormanstown, Co. Meath.
The folks at This is Knit really know how to put on a Yarn Festival. As an Irish-based blogger, I snagged myself admission into the Festival as a member of the press.
My highlights, were meeting old and making new friends.
with Joanne, Laura and Isobel.
with Sionnach Yarns.
with Cat & Sparrow.
The Ravelry Lounge was a very popular area. It was my favourite place to be and meet knitters from all over the world.
Yarn is an experience and I love the way it brings people together with a real sense of a community.
However, few days after Woollinn was not so great.
I fractured my metatarsal bone in my foot and spent 8 weeks in a walker boot cast.
The upside, was that I got quite a bit of knitting and spinning done, while drinking alot of coffee.
and enjoyed food and drink…
Re-reading the Bullet Journal Method reaquainted me to this flexible planning system and trying out the Leuchtturm1917 in the new B6 size.
So, it is time to welcome September and going forward with two feet once again.
