Rhinebeck Pre-Jitters

What am I going to wear? Will it rain? What am I going to buy? I really do not need more yarn.. though I will buy some fiber for a trusty new (to me) spinning wheel..

What to do?

Okay, okay. It's okay.

I'm going to get a new basket..

I'm going to buy some fiber...

Maybe a book and get it signed?

Lots of buttons, maybe a souvenir if there are any left on Sunday.

Where are the apple dumplings?!! I want one Sunday!!

Omgerd, counting down to Rhinebeck people!!!

Me oh My!

Good morning! Happy Wednesday and look, it's the sun! (finally).


This past weekend I spent vendoring at a Medieval Faire in Fort Plain, NY (not very successfully) and presented some cute medieval princess blankets. I may keep one for myself, but the rest are going to go up into my shop at www.tangledmaniashoppe.com as soon I can get a decent picture (not easy with their size haha). 


I also was making knitted goddess doll after knitted goddess doll, and I stuffed some of them with lavender (yum).

Now that all of that craziness is over, I'm very happily tucked into the Portree Sweater by Martin Storey and am in deep love with the pattern.

The yarn is from knitpicks, swish dk. And as long as I can find the missing ziplock bag in my stash (or somewhere around the house), I will really enjoy making this sweater. The only issue I have with this sweater is that it is in pieces, so I'm doing colorwork on the purl side, which makes my head hurt haha. This is definitely going to be my Rhinebeck sweater.

I hope everyone is doing well and you have had a beautiful summer. 

Be Well!

The Day of the Forgotten Projects

I made a mistake yesterday... and this morning. A big crafty mistake...

Are you ready?

Did you brace yourself?

I forgot my crochet hook (for the crochet project in my bag) and I forgot to put a replacement knitting project in my bag (I finished a shawl last night). 

...

Yes.. That means..

I am craftless today at work!!!!!


Okay, deep breaths.. I can do this... I can survive this! So what if today is day two of a very painful period...

Backup plan? I do have my charged kindle and I do have a movie on it, so I think I can make that swing during lunch.. But the way home will be just reading.

And hey, I love knitting, but to not have a craft in hand is just... alien to me! So I hereby dub today:
The Day of Forgotten Projects

Because I am one of those people who has dozens of projects I could be working on, not including all the rainbow stuff I need to finish for June 2nd. So ya. Let's add an extra torture on my day, as if I'm not a little cranky as it is.

In Other News:
  I have been dyeing yarn, so yay! Here is a smidge of what I've been working on.





This is the shawl I just finished, though this is a very pre-finished picture (it is soaking right now and will be blocked out tonight). It is Taliesin by Lucy Hague.

Besides a huge plethora of rainbow themed (and other pride flags) of washcloths, headbands, dolls and more (oh my), I do need to work more on this wedding shawl for a good friend of mine. It is called Wedding Belle and the design is by Kristi Holaas.

This is just the tip of the iceberg as to my project pile. Hopefully, with my stress at work vastly reduced, I can plow through it this year. :). With me luck!

Be Well!
