Fiber Farm Tour

Thank goodness for good friends-today I happened to have plans to come home to Port Townsend. On the way, I decided to call my bestest best friend Corinne-whom promptly asked where I was between my house and hers-almost to the Hood Canal Bridge, I say, Why?-Stop at the farm on Beaver Valley Road, somewhere near the Egg and I-Whats going on at the farm? I ask-The WSU Jefferson County Farm Tour is going on, and this year they added Fiber Farms to their map!-Yay!, I think to myself and say to Corinne, groan says my wallet.........
Oh, as soon as I have a picture I will show you, but I bought some LUVLY natural white handspun wool at Spring Hill Farms, directly from the darling old spinner-Kudos to the diehards who never let the farmsdie!!!!!

Done with the Noro, onto other older projects.

Okay, the scarf is done, I didn't need it right away but I had to make it so that I could say that it was done. You understand. Now for that heel and foot of one last sock, for that cuff on the second sleeve, for the sewing together on the cardigan-all the small things that get pushed aside. Not that Joey will die without a pair of my handknit socks, but his birthday was last month. Not that the weather has cooled off so much that I need the sweaters, but they have overstayed their welcome in the matching blue project baskets.
And on the other hand, I did just start a hat last night, intending to gift it to the husband today for his birthday, but instead I am writing about it instead of knitting...

knitting in traffic

I've been doing lots of knitting, but not lots of blogging. You know how it goes. I recently whipped out a coffee cup cozy and a bird, as gifts for co-workers. The overdress(ed) pattern is finally available (see below). The baby dress I knit won first place at the Jefferson County Fair here in Washington, and is now going to be displayed at Puyallup Fair, to a much larger audience. Definately excited about that one!
I have been working on the Noro Striped Scarf from jared floods website, and that is my reigning knitting in traffic project. Two colors, switched every two rows, I can knit and purl my way through every red light and lookie-loo backup on Interstate 5.....
more another day
