The third weekend in October is the New York Sheep & Wool festival, aka, Rhinebeck.
Mortal and I went up again. Mother abandoned us for a breast cancer walk.
The weather was nicer than last year. No snow :)
I did not finish the black hole in time. I am aproximately 11 inches up the body. I haven't even switched to the plain stockinette yet. This is not boding well. I did 4 rows in the car, but that was it.
Let the record show that I did volunteer to drive and I even asked Mortal at numerous times if she wanted me to drive. She said no. I wonder if this had anything to do with the minor incident that occured last year.... I needed to slow to a gradual stop, so I took my right foot off of the gas and went to put my left foot on the clutch and my right foot on the brake. Except, there was no clutch and both feet came down on the brake. This wouldn't be a problem if her car had the correct number of pedals.
Our first stop was to ooh and ahh at the judged items. There was a beautiful beaded Evenstar there. The grand champion item was this gorgeous shawl. I also saw these really cute felted mice.
