Life - knitting interruptous
(Pleasant Valley Wildlife Preserve)
We stayed in a great B & B called the Rookwood. Really pretty, great breakfast. We had a fab room with a woodburing fireplace and a little porch.

On the knitting front, it's been slow going. Last week I ran out of yarn on the Red Scarf Project scarf. I went to Smileys, where I was pretty sure I got the yarn from, but I couldn't find a match. UGGGGG! It's my first cable scarf, so I had no idea how much damn yarn it takes. I bought more yarn, and started again. I cast off my tiny 48" scarf for David (you can still wear it around your neck, just can't really wrap it all the way around).
and then cast on again:
As for the Spring Fling, I've made some headway on that. Much knitting done in the car, not much anywhere else.
The pattern has you casting off the back, and the two front sections, and then sewing them together. Screw that! Three needle bind off is the name of the game baby!
Today is my last day to get things done (like blog). I have tons of fall work in the garden today, dig up and divide the Iris' plant the Poppies, new Iris bulbs, cut down the Lillies, dig up the Petunias, and put in the Crocus bulbs. All this fall work, and I won't even be here in the spring to enjoy it. I'm going to be dependant on David to send me photos. What a drag.
tomorrow I head off to my family reunion and pass out the many knit gifts I've made. . . scarf for Colin, scarf for Rachel, and baby set for Mike's little girl.
