Like The Queen
Whatever happens to strike my fancy, but surely some sort of fiber content.


Traveling mercies, Dear Bess, and have fun in Vt!

It's setteled. The swatch knit on size 8 needles measures right on gauge so I'll cast on the real sweater just as soon as I finish up the mohair/angora - sometime today I am sure. Only 16 more rounds on that to go plus a neckline treatment and weaving in the ends.

Happily, I can report that I found a 24" size 8 Addi turbo while reorganizing my stash yesterday. How does this stuff get so cluttery!? I also did a little tidying up with my knitting library - which is extensive. In fact, it's so big I'm tempted to catalog it. I'm actually a little amazed at how remarkably vast it's gotten - not outlandish, mind you, but very very big and I still don't have all the Barbara Walker stitch books. After I own them, I wonder, can I ever need another knitting book?

Anyway, I can keep myself entertained with my collection for many a year.

Tomorrow, at Crack-0-Dawn I head off to the Montpelier Fall Fiber Festival and shan't have time to post. I have to be on the road at 6. I won't be back till late on Sunday, so this is probably my last post till Monday a.m. But - and it's a big but - I am writing up the travel log and if I get a chance I'll sneak into the library before it opens, scan some photos and post at least the first entry. If not - you'll get to see them next week.

Happy weekend to all.
