I have my papers together for the tax man appointment today and I'm oh so glad to be done with that little chore. (hopefully they won't have to call me 50 times with questions before they're done)
My knitting failure this week is a hat that I really don't like (on me)...will probably frog it and make something else with the yarn. I knit this whole hat twice...once on size 8 needles (too small) and once on size 10.5 needles (still too small). Not sure what's up with this pattern but the sizing is wak! It looks great on Heddy who has a nice long narrow head but she is certainly not representative of me. Don't you love the yarn though?
My first commission sock (of what I hope will be many) for Rita's festival season samples is finished. Isn't it pretty? The yarn is oh-so-nice and I love the pattern...I believe this is the third time I've knit this sock pattern.
Riff and the yarn is fabuloso! (it has Cashmere) stay tuned for progress photos of that one.
It's shearing season so Paula and I will be heading up to Hillside Jacobs in Sparta tomorrow for the Jacob/Shetland/Columbia sheep festivities. I'm not planning on purchasing any fleece (really, I'm NOT!) but if I happen to run across a nice fleece grown by a pretty lady named Jennifer I might have to bring it home...this is some of what she grew last year...

Time for wrastlin' in the office
