“F” is for weekend!?!

Well hello everyone!  Hope you all had a “FANTASTIC” weekend!  Filled with “FUN”!  I had a “FABULOUS” weekend up at Lake Charlevoix with Ken’s “FAMILY”. 

 On Saturday, we (this would be Ken and me- and no, he did not think it was a Viper Festival – he was ready to trek through the yards and yards of yarn with me)  took the “FERRY” to the “FIBER FESTIVAL” at Castle “FARMS”.  There were dozens of vendors selling their “FIBERY” goodness!! 

I stopped by Briar Rose “FIBERS” and snagged some gorgeous Angel Face to knit up Ann Hansen’s “Wing of the Moth” shawl.  Oh. My. Heavens.  This yarn is gorgeous – stay tuned for some Yarn Photos later on!

I also got some Aussie Sock Yarn – in a masculine gray colourway – after all, if Ken could trek through “FIBER FESTIVAL” with me – he should get some socks for the effort, right?

I also saw Susie there – and we had a wonderful reunion!  Hugs and kisses and laughter.  Susie had a drop spindle and a pocket “FULL” of roving – temptress that she is!  I managed to hold off the lure of spinning – and just stuck with the “FINISHED” product.

I shared a room with Ken’s sister Sue – we had a great time together.  I think we stayed up most of “FRIDAY” night talking.  I enjoyed his family immensely and we have all planned a “FOOTBALL” “FESTIVAL” in September at GVSU for one of their games.  Sue’s daughter, Stacy, attends GVSU – so I am sure that will be a “FUN” time! 

Ken’s sister Sheri and her husband Randy took us for a boat tour of Lake Charlevoix – at least the south arm of it.  Wow.  This is the really high rent district!  Holy cow, were there some palatial pads on the lake! 

Saturday evening we had a surprise party for Sheri turning “FIFTY”.  Another “FUN FILLED” evening! 

 For a weekend filled with so many “F’s” I would rate it an “A” PLUS!

  1. I am so glad you had a good time. One word of warning though. Try as you might you are eventually going to find yourself drawn into the world of spinning.

    Oh sure. It all starts innocently enough. A drop spindle and little bit of pencil roving. Ooooo. Look how pretty that is! Oooooo. It wasn’t that hard either! Ooooo. Look! There’s some really pretty regular roving! Ooooo! Maybe I could start to blend my OWN colors! OOOOOO!

    Yeah. Well. Just watch out. That’s all I’m saying.
