It is that time of year. Fairs, Festivals, and Open Houses. Today was the 39th Fall Festival held here in Asheboro NC. The Festival is held every year to showcase handmade items. I did not plan to go because I lost interest a few years ago because I felt like the festival had drifted away from it's purpose. I did not attend the last two years. This year however I notice a lot more had crafted items. This time I noticed a lot of knit and crochet items. Dish cloths, scarves, shawls, hats, and afghans. I did not buy anything because I had to save my money for tomorrow, and our trip to Rising Meadow and The Goat Lady Dairy. So no knitting, reading, or crochet today. I am listening to Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I can listen to the cd's over and over again. I find it very relaxing to knit, crochet, or blog while listening to a book on cd. Happy Crafting.
