Our Father, who art at Fenway...
Baseball be thy game.
They Kingdom come,
Series need to be won,
On Earth, then on to the Cask 'n' Flagon.
Give us this day, a perfect Papi,
And forgive us our losses,
As we forgive those,
Like Bill Buckner.
And lead us not, into desperation,
But deliver us from any losses.
For thine is the Power,
And the Glory,
To beat the Rockies,
Forever and ever....the Yankees suck

Here is the bag I made for my Fall Felted Bag Partner. She's received her package so it is safe to post the picture. It's a bag from Knitty.com Their model was done in purple and green. It's a slip-stitch pattern. When I felted it, the squares got distorted, but i think it adds a bit more character. (or as Mary Beth Temple, author of The Secret Languiage of Knitter's, would say; it's a Design Modification - LOL)
The yarn for the bag is Lamb's Pride Worsted. It has grommets in each of the holes where the straps are fed through.
The flower is a Noni Camelia. It was hard to grasp the concept of the pattern at first but then something clicked. The flower is knitted with Cascade Quattro.

I have a link to a list of things I have done and things I still want to do....
I can mark one more thing off the list. I am doing stranded knitting tonight. :)
This is how far I had gotten this afternoon and tonight I have started on the rows that have more than one color. I think I am getting the hang of it. I am keeping both strands in my left hand and don't seem to be having a problem with it so far.
This is it before I started the hand. I turned it black and white so my mitten swap pal wouldn't know they are for her...

We had a blast! I went with 4 women from the CT SnB group that I knit with once a month (which i am going to try to make at least 2-3 times per month now). The drive up was BEAUTIFUL and I regret not taking my camera. dumb mistake. We went on all back roads through CT and NY. The fall foliage was unbelievable and we passed a number of gorgeous horse farms.
While walking from one building to another we saw a sheep on it's way to one of the barns, who clearly did not want to be on the leash he was on. Every 10 seconds he said "BAAAAAAAAH" and reminded me of the laugh of Arnold from Happy Days. (the Asian one) (Remember him? BAAAHAHAH)
We got there when it first opened and went straight to Socks that Rock. I bought three skeins figuring it would be nice to leave something for others AND keep my budget intact for the rest of the day.
Oregon Red Clover Honey
I tried to get stuff that I couldn't get anywhere else. I got some Bison yarn which is soooo soft. I am going to make a lace skull cap with it.
Some Aussie sock yarn (Faded Valentine)
some Araucania that was dyed in Chile.
I also got a thrummed mitten kit
and then we went to Morehouse (which is closing it's brick and mortar store and focusing on the web store). I got a heavy weight sock kit, another mitten kit and a lace shawl kit.
I guess I'll be pretty busy for awhile.

You learned to skate with actual skates (not roller blades) that had metal wheels. (My best friend and I would get dressed in our light pink bodysuits from gymnastics and do roller skating shows in my basement for our parents - we were soooo talented!!)
You had Moon boots for snowy days.
You wore gauchos.
You begged Santa for the electronic game, Simon.
You had homemade ribbon barrettes in every imaginable color. (Mine had beads on the ends of the ribbons LOL)
PONG! ("video tennis" ) was the most remarkable futuristic game you've ever heard of ! (We had this and there wasn't another family we knew who did...)
You and your girlfriends would fight over which of the Dukes of Hazzard was your boyfriend. (even though I wanted the dark haired guy)
You learned everything you needed to know about girl issues from Judy Blume books.
(Are you there God, It's me, Margaret.)
You wanted to be a Solid Gold dancer. (watched it every week, along with Dance Fever with Danny Terio LOL)
You drowned yourself in Love's Baby Soft - which was the first
"real" perfume you ever owned.

I also have a shoe holder on the back of a closet door in my dining room that has leftover skeins from prior projects.
