Guest Blogging

Well actually not guest blogging but truly guest knitting. I thought I would share with you the gorgeous sweater that Mom made for Horsey Girl. Isn't it great?! It is made with Blue Sky Alpaca Organic Cotton and is their pattern for the eyelet cardigan. She did such a wonderful job and since she doesn't have a blog to show it off I thought I would share it with you and you can leave her kudos in the comments. The most amazing part of it is that a 13 year old actually likes it and wore it to school today! Will miracles never cease?

I am working on the Secret of the Stole but will not share that with you just yet as I messed it up and the pattern is not right. I truly don't know what to do given that if I frog it back I'm afraid I'll mess it up even more. So instead I leave you with beautiful glass pumpkins from the glass pumpkin patch I attended over the weekend. It is a wonderful event where all sorts of artists have their work on display and you can buy the pumpkins. Shown here are fairly traditional colors but you name the color and they've got pumpkins to match. This is my second year attending any my glass pumpkin collection is growing!

Twenty years in this town and I still haven't gotten to that display! I had an excuse this time, I was 3000 miles away. Next year! (It's over now, isn't it? Because if it isn't, I do want to see it.)
