I was one of the founders of the Broward Ferret Rescue and Referral in South Florida. I still love them even though they spelled my name wrong.
Anyone want to adopt a llama? Southeast Llama Rescue has several that need a home. As soon as I have a home and some land, I'll be giving them a call.
What a wonderful meet-up we had at SAFF
You all were so awesome to come out to say 'hello'
AmyDe and son with the infamous Crap D'Acrylique
And dear AnitaT who apparently is very good at describing people.
Is the Kanuga Knitting and Quilting Retreat 2011 something you might be interested in? It sounds wonderful. Check it out!
All of the 'lovelies' I brought home from SAFF:
Miss Bab's "Yummy" Hand-Painted Sock & Baby Yarn - 2 ply Superwash in the Nasturtium colorway. 400yds. 100% Merino wool.
Dragonfly Fibers Dragon Worsted in the Green and Speckled Frogs colorway. 560yd. skeins.
River's Edge Fiber Arts Screaming Wild Monkeys 70% Superwash Merino/15% Seacell/15% Banana in the Tiger Lily colorway. 4 oz.
and my Fair Trade basket made in Ghana from The Woolery
ON MY NEEDLES:
Ta Da!!!! It's FINISHED!!! The Dread Stocking Robert is now the handsome farmboy, Wesley!
I want everyone to notice it is nearly the SAME size as the model stocking and NOT the size of King Kong!! If it were pressed flat, it would not be so wonky and would therefore be the exact size.
If anyone is interested in knitting this stocking, here is the link to the Grace Ennis pattern.
I am really enjoying knitting the Zipper Sock by Patti which she so graciously gifted to me. Thank you Patti!
And here is a link to the Cece Cardigan that I am knitting along with the Knitmore Girls
ON MY SUZIE:
I spun up one bobbinful of my Brown Beast roving so I can continue knitting on my Hong Kong Garden top down raglan.
Thank you everyone for all of your pirate name submission. THE NAME THE PIRATE CONTEST IS NOW OVER! Winner will be announced soon!
Thank you to AmyDe for her offer! She is now the proud owner of the Crap D'Acrylique (see photo above). Please submit offers and photos of what you would like to trade for the approx. size 6 handknit sweater in Northampton Bulky in the Burgundy colorway.
Be sure to include your email address.
Thank you to everyone who is out there listening and leaving comments, reviews and sending emails. We really appreciate you!!
