From seeing people's TiVo lists, I'd say TiVo lists are like fingerprints or snowflakes, no two alike. Also, you'd never guess what some people watch! Interesting stuff. I did forget a couple of shows. Pre-TiVo I watched Nip/Tuck, so I'll be adding that back into the line-up. And Windyridge Farm will be happy to know that Rescue Me is on our TiVo list because Scott LOVES the show. I think it's his current favorite. I have to admit, Denis Leary really shines in that role (remember, I'm speaking from an actor's perspective, I couldn't really use those words for the character he plays), and the show as a whole is pretty darned good. My list is long enough so it can stay on Scott's TiVo list for now.
Kate's finished her version of Sand River! You can see in progress pics here, and the finished scarf here. She loved it so much she's started another in red Bamboo! Can't wait to see how that turns out. As soon as the skirt is done I'll be casting on for a shawl version, and then making the pattern available.
Speaking of the skirt, yup, I finished it! And promptly starting frogging after realizing it's too short. Okay, to be honest, there was that panicked phone call to Anne first. (She's even nice on the phone.) I'll be adding another repeat of the second lace section, and then redoing the final lace section.
Kathy corrected me on the Fabric Place Knitters Breakfast date, it's actually 9/30. There is an event on 9/24, though -- the Boston Knit-Out and Crochet Too 2006. Again, if you're in the area, think about going! I plan to be there.
Geez, and here I was thinking that's all I had.
Saturday I went to a spin-in at Parker River Alpaca Farm and had a fabulous time! I got to see some folks I had met before, as well as make new friends. And I met Blogless Sharon, whose name I've seen floating around a lot. Hehe.
We were on the lawn:
and at some points, the alpacas wandered by.
At other times, they ran off to the more secluded fenced off area. Were we too loud? Were they worried we'd spin the fleece off their backs? Hmm, could be another reason they were there:
It's hard to say.
There were a bunch of fleeces in the top of the barn, but I've still got the alpaca fleece that came with the wheel (and I'm saving $ for Rhinebeck) so I was a good girl.
As Carole said, there's something about those alpacas. Looking at them, I couldn't help but giggle "heeheehee" they tickled me so. Can you blame me?
I finished up the BFL in the Sunfires colorway I had dyed up several months back. The colors are so bright and cheery. I'll navajo ply to make striping sock yarn.
The superwash pinks I spun after refuses to photograph accurately. Punk.
The weather was sunny and gorgeous, the mood happy, the company smashing. Thanks so much to Kathy & Tick and Olivia & Dave for hosting!
