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!
