freshest ingredients

I've always joked that it was a bad idea to join the "Destash" group on Ravelry, but I've definitely gotten some great stuff (and just for the record, I've sold some stuff I was never going to use too! My newest score is a skein of Wollmeise 80/20 twin! yippee! It was red, and on the low end of the price range for Wollmeise, so I jumped! Isn't she pretty?

And speaking of ingredients, I just got some non-knitting ingredients too! My friend Catherine got me this fabric because we share a love of aprons and she thought this looked like me, and also looked like it totally wanted to be an apron. With the green fabric for a pocket. I agree!

I have a book called The Perfect Apron and I decided I'm going to use the fabric for this one:

Oh, it'll be adorable! (are you seeing that polka dot ruffle on the edge?) And maybe, just maybe, I'll be able to eek out a matching pair of oven mitts!

Tomorrow is the Upper Valley Fiber Fest!!! squeee! My friend Emily tells me that llamas will be doing an obstacle course in the afternoon! those crazy llama - they always have a sort of arrogant air about them (i think it's the way they hold their heads back so that it looks like they're staring down their nose at you) and I think the idea of them deigning to entertain us in such an undignified fashion is unlikely. well see, I suppose!
