The lace workshop with Alison Green Will, that I took at the Revival, was fabulous. I feel like I should seek out more classes with her. She teaches at A Loom With a View in Newburyport, which will be my next yarny jaunt. I very proudly managed to squeeze out a little triangle of lace during the class, and am left wondering what the rate of blindness is for laceworkers.
There was an amusingly pushy turkey strutting his stuff at the Fiber Revial. I had to take my lunch elsewhere in fear of being continually ruffled at.
Cutworms have been eating our tomato plants. They are horrible, disgusting, giant (4 inches in length), fleshy caterpillars who could eat an entire tomato plant in a day or two. This adds insult to injury in a year that has been very bad for the tomatoes in our driveway garden. The kids fed the vile creatures to the ants.
