then there was thursday

We got home late Wed. evening, which meant that Thursday was chock full of catch-up work for me. So of course that's the day the electricity went out repeatedly for short periods, for no apparent reason. Luckily, blocking a scarf is an electricity-free activity.

Later in the afternoon, I gave the Goob a ride to the farmers' market so she could work with Scott and Jesse, as usual. It was the last market of the season in this particular town, dark and cold by the time I returned to help break down our booths, but such a warm and friendly feeling among the vendors there. Our organic farmer friend Jessica was so proud to be wearing her first ever knitting project!

Since Leah helped her with some of the knitting basics at the market a couple of months ago, in between customers, Jess made sure to show Leah how far she's come. She winged the whole thing, just made it up as she went along, and it turned out great. I especially like how the gather at the top turned into a star.

Then Jess mentioned how she bought a few more hanks of yarn recently. I said it sounds like she's been bitten by the knitting bug. With an ear-to-ear grin, she agreed wholeheartedly.

Mwoo ha ha haaaa. Another member joins the club. WHY CAN'T I FIND ANY HERE!!! Harumph.

Making that hat up as you go? That is talent. It really is. There are those of us who simply MUST have a map to follow.

PS. So do you snake long wires through your scarf to block it? Looks like it. I'll have to look into that.
