The other design flailing around my head is something for a birthday girl, so I won't say much about it, just in case she reads this. I am sure I can get it done by the weekend.....

p.s. I still have the rooster, but time is growing short for him.

|Apple pie jam|
The jam is on the stove, cooking down to a lovely golden brown, thick mass of yumminess so I thought I would take a minute and let you know that I have actually finished a project.
The hat was one I made from Addy's fleece, throwing in a few pre-dyed mohair locks and some metallic sparkle. The resulting batts I spun as lightly as I could. The result was very pleasing. I then decided to knit the hat with asymmetrical cables. Very difficult!! I normally design things it to be evenly spaced--properly balanced. It was really very hard to consciously put the cables in various places. I think it came out just fine. The scarf is still on the loom. I am going to get a move on that as I have spun some black for the next one, which I have an exciting idea for. Well, exciting to me! I will share later, after this one is finished.

|Sand filled State Park|
When we reached Rte 4 we headed west toward home, traveling the same roads we did when we were driving through the storm. It is mind boggling to think how these placid little brooks could become such instruments of destruction.

|Our little booth|
To that end, Poultney is hosting its annual Town Wide Yard Sale. Slots are available on Main Street for those who want to be sure of traffic by their booth. Otherwise a person can just have a sale at their home. Gloria and I will have a spot on Main Street. We know that people are really looking for bargains so we use this more as an advertisement of what we have and what we can do. Sometimes people actually buy things. Which is always nice! But it means that I have to be knitting up ideas so that I will have stock to lay out as I sold several things lately. Selling is always a jump start to creativity.

The Roosters are both getting feisty. I hate to think I will have to choose between them as they both are getting quite handsome. As long as they behave I won't have to worry!
