Well Hellooooo There

Well, hellooooo there my lovely. I see you've been lurking around my bag of handspun yarn just dying to be made into something. Here you are, all knitted up and looking fabulous. In fact, you're looking so good I think I'll smack a price on you and try and sell you to a new home... that is... if I can pry it off of my neck.

I am in love with this scarf. I knit it up from some yarn from Hobbledehoy (called Algebra) that I bought months ago. I used a random knit and drop stitch pattern on it to show off the hand spun nature of the yarn. I don't think I've ever used such beautiful yarn on a project. This is truly my favorite scarf yet (and I'm a HUGE fan of scarves, so that is quite the thing to say).

How about I give you a quick update from my craft fair. In short, it was fabulous. I sold more than I have at any show in the past and am almost out of scarves. I need to go buy some more novelty yarn that can be knit up into "inexpensive" scarves since those do very well at shows and I have 2 shows in November and the potential to sell at my place of employment for the Holiday season. I better get those needles cracking.

I want to let all of you know that I am unsure of how much blogging I'll be doing in the next week or 2. My mom had a wonderful 2nd opinion from a surgeon in Little Rock and we're heading down there this weekend to admit her for some surgery to attempt to remove as much of the brain tumor from hell that is taking a vacation in my mom's head. However, I will be hitting up the local fiber festival on Saturday before heading to Little Rock. I'm sure my mom would be upset if I missed it. I've been looking forward to it for a few months and she gets stressed if we put things that we've been looking forward to on hold for her. Perhaps I'll get some new yarn there to knit up while sitting in Little Rock.

So, for all of my Little Rock area AREtsy peeps - drop me a line. I'd love to meet some of you if I'm able to.

Until next time...
