-Peruvian spinner -- Cice and Chelette relaxing at the end of the day at MSW
May was a busy month and I haven't written any posts. So, I decided to post mostly pictures of what I have been doing. May 2nd and 3rd was the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. I didn't do much shopping (only 5 skeins of yarn -around $50 worth). But I took two classes with Nancy Bush - Estonian Traveling Stitches, and Nordic Color.
On May 21st the Uruguayan author Eduardo Galeano read at Politics and Prose. Recently, his name became more well known after the president of Venezuela gave President Barack Obama a copy of Galeano's book Open Veins of Latin America. Galeano was passionate,eloquent and very funny. His work is rooted in the history of the American continent(s), yet he is above all very literary. There were about 300 people there to hear him - old (and young) leftists, many Latinos, P&P regulars, and the curious. I was so glad I didn't miss this!
May 23rd was Stitch and Pitch here in DC. The Nationals played the Baltimore Orioles which made it lots of fun! No goody bags this year, but there was plenty of good company. I worked on my Ravelry Sox's group traveling scarf, and finished my section.
