'Cause sometimes I even surprise the knit out of myself.

Wow so much to much to tell

Let's start off with the first order of business, 2 FOs to talk about today. The first is the super secret blog-snooper project of September. It's Sairy's wedding shawl.

Pattern: Summer Lace Shawlette by Sandi Wiseheart (Interweave 2006)
Yarn: 3 balls of Plymouth Royal Bamboo
Needles: 10.5 Addi Turbos
The next FO was literally finished the night before the second day of Rhinebeck. (The first day I wore my Tilted Duster b/c I ruined my Silver Belle. More on that at a later date). I finished the sleeves and seamed the pocket. Voila! Instant FO.
Pattern: Wicked by the Zephry Girls

Yarn: in colorway "poison". I love this yarn!

Needles: Size 6 Addis

As stated in the Rhinebeck poem, Sairy and I bought Schacht Ladybugs and Lazy Kates as evidenced below.
I bought some pencil roving to practice my drafting technique. Now I playing with plying. Here is the BFL pencil roving.

But now I am on to some fluffy, soft salmon colored merino. Yeah! Sorry for the blurry picture.
I can't tell you how much I adore the fall. I love apples, pumpkins, the colors, the slight nip in the air. This is my season for sure. Sugar Maples are my favorite trees followed closely by Japanese Stewartias. Why do I love Acer Saccharum so much? Take a look.
The best part of the weekend was the once in a lifetime photo the hubs let me take of him on my spinning wheel. Would anyone like to clone him? He did pretty good too. He's very supportive of my crafty endeavors, although my excitement over all things fiber cracks him up a bit.
As of tomorrow evening, I will be on a plane to Disney with my SIL, Tammy (aka KubusKrafts) to see my godson, Andrew, friends, Ruth and Joanne, family and later in the week, my friend, Wendy. We are going to the Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party on Sunday. Bet you can guess what I am going as this year, huh? Was I too obvious? LOL.

YAAARRRRRRRRRRR Have a good week all!
(P.S. I'll tell Cap'n Jack you said hi)

I'm bringing my wheel next time we get together-your merino looks awesome! I think I ruined mine. Autumn is the best time of year. I love the colours and smells of fall best.

Don't let your husband get too comfortable in front of that wheel ... that can be dangerous!

Your spinning is looking great, though--you should be proud!

And--what happened to Silver Belle???

YOur spinning is looking great! You're a total natural at it. Wicked turned out awesome. That's a sweater I must knit sometime. So simple and versatile. Enjoy FL and being a pirate!
