My friends from long ago...

Last month I went to my college reunion. My 25th college reunion. 25 could it possibly be that long ago? Here are some of my close friends who made it back for the reunion. I haven't seen or spoken to them for over 5 years and it was just like we had seen each other yesterday. Sharing each other's dreams, plans, tears and fears for 4 years probably has something to do with it! We have vowed to get together at least once a year now and already have tentative plans for a trip to NYC.

More rain...

I don't think the weather here could get any worse. It has been raining for days with no end in sight. There is a winter storm warning for the higher elevations. There could be 3-5 inches of snow accumulation. Ugh! I find this time of year to be a downer. I have always told my husband I should have been a bear...hibernating until spring sounds like a good idea to me. I just seem to slow way down, I need more sleep than usual and I start eating all of the wrong foods (which is probably why I slow down!)

I haven't completely finished the entrelac bag...I wasn't happy with the way my handles turned out so I am going to do some fiddling. Here is a photo...I'm sure you can see how great it will be when it's all together.
Carrying this bag will really cheer me up!
I am also knitting a new sweater using the prettiest bright pink had subtle color changes and it is yummy. I am kind of designing my own thing using The Knitters Handy Book of Sweater Designs by Ann Budd. Of course, I am getting help from my favorite teachers at my favorite LYS! I will photograph my progress when I have some natural light...and the rain stops!

October already?

How did this happen? Where has September gone? The weather still says "summer" here in Western NY, but the trees are beginning to turn color and the days are getting shorter so I know "sweater weather" is just around the corner! My turtlenecks and wool sweaters are all ready to go.
Not much is happening on the knitting front. I am working on the "Lots of Choices" top from The Knit Stitch book. It's fun to knit, but I just don't seem to have much time or energy to work on it. I have begun the felting process for the entrelac bag...oh I'm so nervous on how it will turn out. Stay tuned...
