Taos, New Mexico

Yesterday was our wedding anniversary! Yeah! Four years married! So about a month or so ago, my DH asked where I wanted to go for our anniversary. There was a wool festival in Taos, New Mexico that weekend. We agreed that Taos sounded fun and not too far for a day trip. So we hopped in the truck and went to Taos!

We left in the dark, in the EARLY morning hours!
Here is the sunrise an hour into our drive:

The drive was nice. Scenic and very romantic! I love Autumn! The changing colors, mountain roads, the crisp in the air!

The festival was fun! There were fun booths with interesting wares. Some critters (not as many as Estes). It was smaller, but still worth the drive! We really enjoyed eating Kibees and lamb kabobs while listening to live music! And of course there were stash enhancements!!

Goats

Sheep Rug

Plain & Fancy Sheep & Wool Co.

We did a little sight seeing in the afternoon.

There was knitting too!

Then we headed back home after a wonderful day and enjoyed the sunset along the way.

That was a full day! Which was great! I really enjoy our little trips.
But today I just want to relax.....
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

how do you do your socks? Knit so many rows on one sock and then switch to the other? And.... what toe up pattern do you use?
