Because I have been suffering from lack of internet access and you’ll get these posts as I can make them…..
Finally met Cathy-Cate (who is short!)
I may have only purchased one skein of yarn, but I came home with three… the blue was something I won over at Lucia’s a while back, and the white was a gift from Cathy-Cate… some super soft Wisconsin spun alpaca and angora. I’m thinking it needs to be a hat. Thank you both!
Everywhere on Saturday we saw the February Lady Sweater, some were better than others… Ms Fiberfish was wearing one, and I told her I wanted to take lots of photos of them… I concede defeat… she took more pictures than I did (love the little friendly competition)! I think I only took 10 or so photos.
The other sweaters of note on Saturday were the tangled yoke cardigan, which I would say was the second most common sweater at the fair that day, and the Tilted Duster (both from the Fall 2007 Interweave Knits). Gotta say, when that issue of IK came out, all I could think of with that cover photo was giant purple vagina. It looks much better knit up than it did on the magazine cover. (and why can I put the word for certain female parts in the blog, but not for similar male parts??)
While talking with Juno (who I’ve only met before briefly) about how wonderful it was that there were all these tall women at the fair, I nearly kinneared a photo of this goldish sweater that was next to me, then its wearer turned around…
(don’t embiggen, very fuzzy). Oh, says I, it’s you, and here I just wanted a photo of the color of your sweater….
I wish I took more photos of what people were wearing! You can see them all, the good, the bad, the beautiful, the not so beautiful, (and some of the fuzzy because I was sneaking most of these photos) here. Just so you know, I’m getting an S post out of this flickr set…
Updates around here… the pc is still in trouble. We tried to install a new hard drive, having determined that the virus/trojan was just too big and bad to hassle with. And something isn’t reading/working so we need expert help. Other things are moving along in a positive direction.
