Hi again. This past weekend has been full of happenings. Not necessarily exciting happenings, but that's life, isn't it?
I'll start with something that I think is pretty cool- and that is my Scare Isle Tam pattern was published in Knitty:
If you are thinking of attempting a Fair Isle Tam- this is a bit of fun, and some beginners on Ravelry have completed theirs already- so it's not hard, and you'll get a laugh out of it.
We just had Thanksgiving, no Turducken but a nice 20lb turkey, with stuffing and pumpkin pie, the whole works. It was fun. On the 11th, FC and I celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary. I just read that last line, and it scared the crap out of me!I baked alot last week, and made Pumpkin Pie Bread, which smelled amazing.
I've been stalking this at Costco- and it was half price. All the Beatles on CD- how cool is that?
I spent the morning cutting out the squares for the Basket Quilt- and I've used up alot of my fabric stash, but somehow I still have lots leftover. Le sigh.
I went for a day trip up to Camilla Valley with my buddy, and brought home a rather large bag of Spindrift for another design, but I'm not entirely happy with it yet- so it will wait until inspiration strikes, and in the meantime, I am knitting another Peace Fleece sweater, and finalizing the pattern for another Fair Isle. So while it appears I'm not productive, in truth, it's all happening in my head.
My sister and I are also going for a 3+ hour walk in High Park once a week- I am determined not to miss fall this year- and the park is just glorious. TTFN!
