This weekend is the NY Sheep and Wool Festival in Rhinebeck, NY. This is a really big event, with vendors, food, sheep dog trials, author signings, and more. I went last year with a woman from my knitting group, and this year we're going again with a third member. I'm not planning on doing much shopping this time ( ! ), but we'll see...
Hello! I'm back! I didn't knit a single stitch the whole summer, which partly explains why I abandoned this blog. But now that the cool weather is here (I've put our early-winter quilt on the bed), my needles are clicking and I have a project.
I've done some secret present knitting that I can't tell you about yet. This Baktus scarf is for me, though. I'm using some Noro Kureyon Sock yarn, as I've decided that I'm probably never going to knit a pair of socks out of it. And a good decision, that--this stuff is so thin in some places, it's like wire. And tons of knots. Who wants socks made out of knot-filled wire?
But this scarf is pretty cool. Light-weight, garter stitch, triangle. I've used 17g of the 100g ball, so I'm thinking it's going to be pretty long.
I moved to Malden, MA in April of 2006. I'm trying to get to know my new community, so I'm involved in lots of volunteer efforts around town. Most of my free time is spent on knitting and gardening. And watching Netflixed episodes of Babylon 5.
