So, Somebody stole my Pumpkin Spice from right out of my shopping cart!
However, what do you think of Fido? Kona thinks its better than the Walnut I showed you yesterday.
I just thought of the Coffeeswap 3 coming up - I thought this would be a pretty nice coffee-themed yarn. She still has two in stock (Heh - I bought mine this morning BEFORE I posted. Can't say I don't learn from my mistakes.)
All right, so 'fess up. Who stole my Pumpkin Spice? (She only listed two skeins - darnitall.)
Also? Reading Crazy Aunt Purl's book right now. She coming to the MOA to do a signing, do you think she would be put off if I just hugged her? I'm not much for reviews - but if you like her blog - you'll love her book.
So my kids already have days off from school this Thursday and Friday. Conferences on Thursday for the High School. We are packing up the big car and heading out to the cabin for one final (chilly and leafy) hurrah. Our little town of Stone Lake has their Cranberry Festival (our neck of Wisconsin is riddled with Cranberry bogs). You can buy fresh cranberries or dried craisins (ANY flavored, but I like 'em plain). Hot Cinnamon Almonds (in the cone - yum), Spicy Bloody Mary's (before noon - yum), crafty art or woodsy art, candles and potpourri and lots of handcrafted jewelry (You can see last year's purchase here and here.) They have box car races and a parade where the Shriners ride their mini-motorcycles, and lots and lots of food. The kids are signed up for a Paintball Tournament. I'm bringing my knitting but I am not hopeful that I will get too much accomplished.
