Indigo Blue Day
I had a little extra time today so that I wound up what looked like a healthy skein of indigo dyed blue faced leicester and admired it for a while. Sad, isn't it? All that hard work and two and one-half balls of yarn. I had been perusing my copy of Interweave Press' Wrap Style by Pam Allen but there just isn't enough yarn. Rats.
It does seem to match the weather we are having today. It was opening day for the Minnesota State Fair and that means it usually is either 93 degrees F. or about 60 degrees F. Right now? 67 degrees F. and rainy. Welcome, Annie Modesitt! It's all for you, baby! I don't go to the fair until Sunday when the weather is supposed to be sunny and 72 degrees so I can't wait! We are serious about our State Fair here. It is worth more than one visit. And the knitting? Fabulous. I've submitted items for judging and while I earned 98 out of 100 points, I didn't even place! Not even a third place! Sad but good in a weird kind of way, to live in a place where knitting is taken so seriously.
