Well my girls are back in school after a somewhat rough start. Sophie missed the first two days (fever), Helen missed the second day (fever), and on the fourth day Helen slipped off the monkey bars, split her chin open and got three stitches. (The folks in the ER couldn't believe how brave she was.) I hope we're out of the woods for at least the next week or so! The Vermont Sheep and Wool Festival is at the Champlain Valley Expo Center this weekend. It is usually in October, but they moved it up by a whole month this year. We expect to be busy in the shop. We normally run our tent sale at the same time as the S&W Festival, but we are not having it this year for a number of reasons. But because we know we'll be busy with S&W go-ers, we've done a MAJOR pattern cleanout and are offering some great patterns for $1 or less! We also will have Lamb's Pride on sale (in the shop ONLY) on Saturday, as well as a NUMBER of other yarns at great prices.
We have a couple of great sweaters in on loan from Unique Kolours and Jaeger. This basic pullover is knit with Prism and is really nice. And this cardigan in Roma is adorable - the details on the trims, pockets, and sleeve cuffs are fantastic.
