Teresa will be finished with the school quarter in 5 days. I'm counting because she's been so busy she hasn't had much time for emails, and I miss her.
On Saturday I took myself to the Yellow Springs Street Fair. Everyone I asked had to wash their hair, or wash their dog, or work, or something. YS was jammed. I parked in the first spot I saw, which was just past the first light near the sign the says 'Village of Yellow Springs', and hiked in. Among the booths I found only one fiber artist. Now that's just plain SAD.
The artist is Marcie Brooks, of Cincinnati. Her business is called Handknits By Marcie, but she didn't provide a website on her business card. The weather was hot and sunny, and I don't think she was doing much business that day. Here are some of her wares.
On Sunday Dave and I rode our bikes from Spring Valley to Xenia Station and back - 14 miles round-trip. Last Sunday we met some friends in Beavercreek and rode downtown and back, an 18 mile round-trip. The 18 mile ride included a stop for a snack (pound cake and OJ) at a coffee shop in the historic Oregon District and lunch at a Vietnamese restaurant. I'm sure we consumed more calories than we burned that day. Yesterday's 14 mile trek did not include any food stops, so I'm feeling virtuous.I did manage to get some knitting in this weekend. The front of the Moroccan Blue tank is finished, and I'm about 7 inches up the back.
I wore the Boysenberry lacy tank again yesterday. I really like the Callista yarn - both to knit with and to wear.
