Lady Day has Her Day
Not as Expected

Friday This and That

The FO parade is over and now it's back to slogging away at WIPs and trying to get one UFO to mind its manners.  In other words, I seem to have run out of steam, nothing left to show or say on this Friday. This post will likely be disjointed and full of all the things I wanted to say all week but never had the chance.   First of all, THANK YOU for your lovely kudos, both here and on Ravelry, on the finishing flurry of scarves and the lovely Lady Day. The mornings have been very cool this week and the sweaters knit this past summer have now all had their work debut.  It's officially sweater weather. 

Typepad's email notification of comments stopped working on Wednesday and has been working sporadically since then. I'm not the best when it comes to answering comments, but it was disconcerting to find out there were comments on the post that did not come through and to be unable to answer or acknowledge them.  Thank you for taking time to comment on this blog. I appreciate it SO much.

The flowers are fading for the most part, but isn't this, the last of the hollyhocks, a great specimen?  You can click to see how iridescent it looks.


Did you realize that Carole has a new URL? She's moved her blog host so make sure you update your Bloglines or other RSS reader. It was Carole's idea to start the "10 Minutes A Day" spinning group.  My Spinning Mojo took a short trip with the Sock Mojo, but unlike the Sock Mojo the Spinning Mojo has returned.  The goal is to have my fingers ready for the spinning class with Judith MacKenzie McCuin at Rhinebeck.  This week I've spun for at least 10 minutes a day and hope to do more spinning this weekend.

Susan is having an Unbirthday Sale on all her lace patterns, including her new Heat Wave. Ever wonder what to do with that ONE skein of Brooks Farm you've had for years?  Well, Heat Wave is the answer. You must purchase on the blog post to get your 50% discount. How generous is that!?

Terry is running in the Race for the Cure tomorrow.  She could use a little help with fund raising, so go ahead and give her a dollar or two, please?

I sat down with the second Knotty Glove last night and look how much was accomplished!  This may be a glovely weekend with a full pair showing up by the time the weekend is over.


Woohoo!  Knit on!


What a cool glove. My goal is to knit a glove this fall or winter.

Isn't the let down after all the finishing something else?

Love the gloves, you are fast.

So, you call that much glove "slogging on?" Sign me up, grrrrl! That hollyhock looks like a yarn I've seen somewhere. Perfectly beautiful. Have a terrific weekend!

I'm not really fond of knitting fingers, but I may just have to give this glove a try. It is gorgeous!

Oh, thanks for the link to Carole's new site! Wow, I'm amazed at how far you got on the 2nd glove last night.

Sometimes the "disjointed" post have the best scoop in them!! Have a great weekend!

Sometimes a "taking care of business post" is just the thing. Thanks for posting about my new site!

"Glovely weekend"...Love it!

Augh! I was wondering why Carole hadn't been posting!

Thanks for reminding me about the upcoming JMM class....I need to get my spinning muscles back in shape, too! And watch that video once or ten times....

Thanks for the heads-up on Carole's new site! The hollyhock is spectacular. They're so impressive.

Oh, and by the way, I left something on my blog for you.

Our sweater weather is a long way off, though we did have a noticeable drop in the humidity. :)

My Spinning Mojo took a vacation too (perhaps it was with yours) and I'm hoping that I can convince it to return this weekend. It seems a bit reluctant though. I'll hope for the best.

I'm just catching up on blog reading - all your FO's are beautiful! But, of course that's no surprise; your work is always lovely.

That flower looks a lot like a hibiscus. What color! Thanks for the links.

Did you complain to those weasels at TypePad? Because they don't know unless you tell them and, as a power user, they should be more interested in keeping you happy.

I still love those gloves.

It drives me crazy when movable type doesn't send me my comments. Your gloves are really awesome! Are the fingers a pain to knit?

Oh geesh, I just this week got the courage to do a mitten..a thumb is enough..don't even give me fingers yet!!

That flower is gorgeous! It's starting to get a little cooler here, and I'm ready! Love Lady Day too, looks smashing.

Run over to my blog and check out today's entry.... there's a little something for you there.

You will love that class with Judith.

those gloves look so warm and cozy.

and I totally understand about the calm after the amazing flurry of FO's you just had. :-)

my sock mojo seems to have gone on a long trip (perhaps mine and yours are hanging out together in someplace warm and sunny together, tanning on the beach, no doubt sipping mojitos)
