Saturday Sky - Aspen Edition
Still Stuck on the Weekend

Happy Days Continued

Smithmadekugelforfridaynightdinner 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.   

Coldwetandrainybutthefeltedboothwas 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!

I love that felted hat! Can't wait to see what the pink yarn grows up to be....

I find it very interesting that I knit two socks the same way. I use two sets of needles, knitting a little on both all the way up, or all the way down. Keeps 'em very even.

My neighbor's oven was broken last week for her Rosh Hashanah dinner so she cooked her brisket, honey cakes and kugel in my kitchen. It was almost enough to get this Catholic girl to think about converting let me tell you. Especially that kugel!!

Yay for a happy weekend! I am sorry for the GB festival, but the rain was wonderful and everything smells good again. The hat is a cutie, and love the colors of the sock yarn AND the pretty pink.

Yay for Sock Mojo! I cast on for the Mystery Socks as well and finished both cuffs.

I have the same yarn - it is so beautiful. I am making Evelyn Clark's Cocoon Lace Scarf from it. I look forward to seeing what you will do.
