Friday Update

I have just enough time for a quick update.  I'm putting the finishing touches on my display for the Gather Here Fiber Trunk Show on Sunday.  If you want to read additional information about the featured vendors, be sure to check out the Gather Here blog.

With any luck and a little bit of knitting time I'll be wearing these socks on Sunday.

I made a pact with myself so be faithful to these socks, to see them through to completion before starting something new.  Now that I'm on the straightaway to the toes, I've started to contemplate my next project.  I may have even taken a few minutes for Ravelry.  While my mind flits from an owl trimmed shawl to a new sweater, I realize that the gift giving season is upon us and I should probably focus my attention on that.  But that doesn't stop me from dreaming.

This time of year is characterized by gray days and diminished light. Sometimes even the dismal, dreary days are loaded with color.  My color inspiration for the week.

From shades of purple to reddish yellow and earth tones.  It's all here.

See you on Sunday! I've been admiring your colors online for some time now and can't wait to see them in person.

Sorely tempted by the owl shawl. My in-laws had a neighbor at the lake in NH who knitted baby sweaters and sold them through the League of NH Craftsmen shops. She used that patterns with the owls on the yoke (and shared it with me - typed out by hand!). I think my DMIL would get a kick out of such a shawl - although thus far she has never, to my knowledge, worn anything I have made for her.

Maybe I should make one for me and see if she comments, before proceeding.

The Kauni one on the Ravelry page is just awesome!
