Sorry I've been so quiet lately. My knitting mojo disappeared after knitting 1,001 miniature snowmen and wreaking havoc on my body. OK - it was really only 13 snowmen, but my body could have sworn I knit an entire regiment of two-inch snowmen. So while giving my knitting muscles a rest, I was very busy with my second biggest passion - Scouting.
This weekend was our triennial ConnJam (Connecticut Jamboree) for our Connecticut Yankee Council at the Orange County fairgrounds. We had thousands and thousands attend - (I heard numbers like 3,000 overnight campers and upwards of 6,000 during the day) - and everyone was very, very busy. I was busy with my Troop and Crew - and we also hosted a carpetball station which the fathers and sons made in 2006-2007 when they were in the Cub Scout Pack. It was a huge hit! I even learned a new skill at ConnJam where I tried my luck at slacklining (I admit, I was double dog dared!). OK - I may or may not be holding the professional's hand from Gibbon Slacklines - but I did manage to balance and even bounce around on the slackline. It was quite an accomplishment and I had such fun! More news to come about this great weekend. I'll post some non-knitting posts for awhile until my knitting mojo reappears. In the meantime, go try a new skill and report back on it. If you try slacklining... let me know how it goes!
P.S. - My friend Jay just sent me THIS LINK. This guy makes me look lazy!
