Festival Season has started...

We went to the Strawberry Festival in Burien yesterday. And the weather absolutely did NOT cooperate. Cold, drizzly - not summer festival weather. The entertainers and vendors soldiered on bravely, but I have to say...we chickened out and did our Knit In Public Day - in the store and not on the Greens with everyone else. There were brave souls who did stick it out, I wasn't one of them. Like I told my girlfriend Jeannie, "I have tons of stocking caps, shawls, sweaters at home - but it's almost JULY!!!! We shouldn't have to dress in wool @ the end of June!" (Now I do NOT want any of you throwing this back in my face when I start whining about how hot I am in August and September. ) Below are 2 of the brave entertainers.

I don't remember if I've told you about the rug I'm working on. It is going to be SOOOOOOO cool. Pattern is from the the 2nd Mason Dixon book - Outside the Lines. And it is so fun to knit. If you go to, you can see how everyone has made it their own but changing out the colors and every one of them is gorgeous. I'll keep you posted on how it goes - I'm only about 20 inches into the 60 in tube right now, but you knit on size 15's so it goes fairly quickly.

It will be felted as a tube and then steeked to lay flat as the rug. I can hardly wait!
