Miss T expressed her admiration for my wooden bowl.
For the last five years I have been attending the Stone Lake (WI) Cranberry Festival (which has tons of vendors - usually the same old cr** - if you know what I mean.) There has been an elderly gentleman there every year selling his hand-turned bowls. This one I am particularly thrilled with - he placed a piece of Jasper in the wood before he finished the bowl and it's really lovely. The best part about it - he sells these beautiful pieces for about 1/3 of what you could buy them for in any tourist-tchotchke shop. I buy a couple of them every year. I have three in the house and four in the cabin. He and his son are as nice as they can be, and I pray every year that he is still there.
So I've pulled out some Autumnal-colored sock yarns to cast on over the next month, this is the first one on my list:
I'm going to knit the Autumn Lace Socks (that is a Ravelry link) - this pattern is from the Six Sox Knitalong and is a free pattern - you just need to sign up for the Yahoo Group. The yarn is Chewy Spaghetti from TLE.
