Life is just steaming by. I haven't even written about the girls' crafty weekend of early October, the Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool Festival Weekend, the Halloween Experience, and now, the latest last great weekend of the fall--they just keep on coming, and getting better and better. I'm blind with exhaustion from middle-of-the-night life with this baby of ours, but life is good. And, with hope, tomorrow it will become even better!
But first, in no particular order: Rhinebeck.
This was the haul at the end of the weekend, after day 1 beating a path through the crazy saturday crowds with the sassy stitchess while the husbands tended the combined 5 children, after eating lamb chili, lamb sandwiches, and lamb burgers, and then after the last-minute, last day surgical strike just before closing time on Sunday to scoop up what we regretted not getting the day before, after which we ate more lamb sandwiches, and lamb kebobs and lamb ribs.
Somehow it all tended towards the blues and purples and bluey greens this year.
Don't know if this colorway is gonna be nice, but it sure looks good like this.
But this Socks That Rock looks as yummy as it did on the hook.
The big, giant, hulking skein of super bulky love known as Decadent Fibers Creme Puff called me first, resulting in this, knitted up AND uploaded to ravelry in a breathtaking 24 hours.
So, even though I didn't get this Noro Cashmere Island sweater
finished in time for this boy to wear it loud and proud while eating a candy apple at the fair, the baby showed off her little yoke cardi made of Manos Silk Blend while she petted her first sheep.
