Long time, no see

Hey yall, bet you thought I had abandoned this ol' blog. Nope. My dang computer is sick with the slow disease and I've not had a spare 4 - 5 hours to talk with some call center geek to get it fixed. I've decided to use my son's brand new computer while he is at school during the day.

I've been a good knitting girl though. I have lots of goodies to show you. Not the least was my fabulously fun day at Rhinebeck with my pals Phyllis and Elaine. Elaine and Phyllis took the pictures of me wearing my new pinwheel sweater!

Rhinebeck '08 yarn finds

lovely silk and merino laceweight



5 bucks a skein wool for felting


I got this group for $6 bucks, hopefully for felted mitts


Ooh, Socks that Rock - mill end for $16


more silky lace weight

So who'd we see?

The Ravelry Oracles themselves! All together now, everyone stand and salute!


Thats Phyllis with the very funny Yarn Harlot, Stephanie

I was so glad to run into some Modern Yarnies. There were others in the group (Kristine...) who were a bit camara shy...


So what have I been knitting?

Still working on My Inauguration Day scarf - I decided to do it as a sampler stitch idea. I'm using Black Bunny Fibers Unity Yarn.

Finished a pair of Dashings for my brother-in-law

Ugh, hat attack hat. Still waiting on where to send her...

Argrosy wrap in 5 different Kureyons

There's lots more to tell and more pictures of Rhinebeck that I'll save for another installment. Take care, and don't forget to vote!

Your pinwheel sweater came out gorgeous! Those colors are perfect for Fall, and I'm sure they look good on you. What I'm really envious about is the STR mill ends...who knew?! And for $16? What a deal.

OOH She is all done!!! @ pinwheel!! Just wonderful for the fall!!

It is really good to hear from you! giggle @ don't have 4-5 hours waste. Hope you get your computer fixed soon!

Great goodies from RB and can't wait to see what else you did and who else you met!

I'm so glad you are feeling better. The pinwheel sweater is fabulous and I thought you weren't going to buy any more yarn. You've given me an idea though. I'm going to make an inauguration day scarf too.

I can't believe I missed you AGAIN at RB. I would have loved to have met you in person. I like your swag. BTW, I FINALLY made it to your LYS yesterday - Close Knit.
