I am a lover of books.  Books that involve knitting are usually in the front of the pack.  I had to emphatically curtail my purchasing of books this summer, but, somehow, a TREASURE made it through.  And I want you to know that it is my all-time favorite 2010 knitting book:
Can I just say that there are at least FIVE projects within that I MUST knit?  You will see me at Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool this October and be able to identify me by these two wearables:
And this -
It had better be a cool event - like last year when everyone was wearing sweaters and hats!  The year before was downright COLD!  And I love it, bring it on!  Maybe I'll wear this one on Sunday -
These are seriously wonderful designs. If you all are as addicted zealous as I think you are, I'll see myself coming and going all weekend long!  Am I right?
I've been having a housework-less quiet weekend.  Scott left for NC frightfully early on Saturday to be with his father who is ill.  I wanted to go and thought that I really should, but there is work to do and animals to keep.  If the situation worsens, which I pray it will not, I will find the means to go.  I pulled out some beads in the morning that had been calling to me
I see a brilliant lanyard-necklace in that little grouping.   I am going to teach myself how to make peyote-stuffed beads.  Woo-hoo!  The house is so still - perfect for reading;
I'm going to send this along to my sister when I finish.  I recommend it highly.  Things are not going well at the Nursing Home.  There has been another change-up in personnel which always brings with it unfavorable conditions. I am discovering unexplainable actions and events which are being swept under the rug, all of which make me extremely hyper, and unquestionably ferocious.  The feelings that I once experienced when my children were small and defenseless has revisited me.  And in almost every way my father is like a child again, and needs my protection.  I'll be dragging my major attitude in to meet the new director on Monday with a LIST.  Wish me luck.  Wish HIM luck.

Good luck with the new director!
Great looking knits! I have not seen that book. I'll have to check our library and see if they have it. I love the first hat you're going to make.

Oh. Those patterns you've shown are really cute. I'll have to check that book out. Hope all went well with the director.
