The last stop on our week-long, whirlwind spring break road trip through New England was Vermont. We were only there for 1 night, and we stopped in Montpelier before heading up to Stowe to see how the other half lives.

I’m really starting to use the Cricut my brother and his girlfriend gave me for Christmas, and it is the easiest, coolest thing. I made this Valentine’s Day garland for the circulation desk at school, and now I’m hooked. It was extra long to stretch across the whole desk, and I made 2 different heart shapes in various different sizes strung on some yarn from my stash.

Valley Shepherd Creamery Cheese Festival.

Last year I went to Valley Shepherd Creamery in Long Valley, NJ for their annual Sheep Shearing Festival (where I shot this photo of the sheep pre-haircut).

Wine/beer and cheese tastings, cheesewich and panini stations, and their incredible gelato? And it’s just $15 to get in? I will be there with bells on.

nycyarncrawlI’m extremely excited about this.

My friend Laura Ann sent me the link for this 4-day event, taking place over Columbus Day Weekend (October 9-12). I’m absolutely participating, and I’m hoping that I’ll hit all 14 participating stores and compete in the scavenger hunt. But I can’t really start the crawl until Friday evening at the earliest, so I have a feeling some other lucky knitter will finish it first.
