Not to sound like a Pollyanna, but the happy, good "stuff continued right on though the weekend. Last Thursday LizK blogged about her Aunt Cookie's Kugel and I just knew Smith would be reminded of his grandmother's if I made it. I printed of the recipe and left it on the counter when I went to work on Friday. When I came home there was a warm pan of kugel cooling in its place(almost as if by magic). Smith actually followed Liz's recipe (something he rarely does) and it was such a treat! We had it for breakfast and dinner over the next three days.
Saturday we woke to rain, something that is desperately needed around here. Sadly it was the weekend of the Great Baisn Fiber Faire and it was cold and miserable for the vendors and attendees. Susan and I braved the wet to show support and found some lovely things to buy. Hopefully a few more Ewe-tah grrls made it by as it was surely a slow and wet day for everyone. The bright spot of the festival was a booth of felted items from Kyrgyzstan that were brought by Big Yellow House. I bought a thick, warm felted hat that protected me from the wet and chill. It's funky and fun to wear.
The knitting happiness continued as Sock Mojo, inconjuction with Kim's fabulous yarn, smiled on me as I knit the cuffs for Kirsten's Mystery Socks. Kim's yarn is a rich, warm, spicy brown created by a mix of colors like beige, tan, green and every shade of red brown. It's makes for very interesting knitting and combined with the pattern, very entertaining, too.
You may remember the Georgia O'Keefe flower in Friday's post and my wish for a yarn in that colorway. Well, as fate would have it, awhile ago I was enticed to by a beautiful pink yarn (I know you're surprised) from Ruth. The colors are a perfect match to the picture, a perfect match! How lucky is that? I think I have an idea what it will grow up to be and I know we'll live happily ever after, too. Ruth has a new online shop where you can by all her available yarns, jewelry and notecards. Congratulations, Ruth...it's a great spot!
