Seeing is believing, lol
After my appointment this morning at DHS (which went relatively quick), we managed to sneak him in to see the doctor. We got a cream for his bumps and he should be good to go in about a week. And now, instead of working on my paper...I'm writing this post. But I'm proud to report that I finished the reading last night, and I didn't knit anything yesterday either so I'm not messing around as much as it might seem ;)
One last thing. I'm not going to Rhinebeck this year. I just can't afford to go. But I see everyone gearing up for their trip and planning their Rhinebeck 2011 project. I can't help getting swept up in the excitement and I've decided that I want to knit a Rhinebeck sweater too. If you haven't been to the NY Sheep and Wool Festival yet, you should really go. It's like a knitters pilgrimage. And knitting the Rhinebeck project isn't just about making something to wear there. It's more of a personal challenge to make something that stretches your skill set. It's about making a project that you might not quite be ready for yet, just to see if you can do it, and then show it off to everyone at the festival when you do. It's sort of a coming out of your skill set and sense of style. And there's always an 'it' pattern. The year I went, it was Vivian. There must have been 20 people wearing one! So, even though I won't get to go up and show it off at the fest, I'm going to knit a Rhinebeck sweater this year, and I think you should join me! My only question that needs answering right now is whether or not I'll design my own sweater, or knit one from my que. Any thoughts?
