what happened to spring....

i'm going to make a concentrated effort to get my fiber stuff posted. there has not been a lot of fiber things happening, but i did have some fun. the annual 'girls weekend' took us to the lovely state of New Hampshire to my cousins cabin in the woods. they name it 'little bear cabin' after a sighting of.... you guessed it... a little bear. we didn't encounter any on our outings, but did see amazing stuff.....
the afternoon we arrived it was in the low 70's, just perfect for a hike.  there were few signs of spring other than the lack of snow :)
and the brightening of the trees. you could see hints of buds and the smells were amazing.
our destination was this pond with loon and beaver. you could see some activity on the trees...
several had fallen in the area, all with the same tell-tale teeth marks! we shopped in Concord and i found a charming yarn shop, The Elegant Ewe. while the others were playing in a bookstore, i had myself a fine time in the shop. there was a wide variety of yarn, wheels, looms.... it was all there. i left with two balls of knitting fever painted desert laceweight for.... you guessed it weaving.  i even got some knitting done on my knit-a-long poncho...
want to do it all over again!

There is something very soothing about the woods and paths and ponds and a warm fire on the hearth! Thank you for sharing :-)
