Aloisia Pollock, a knitwear designer from Jefferson designed this beautiful scarf for me using only one skein of yarn. She displays and sells her work at Pinetree Yarns in Damariscotta. I am so impressed with her work, and she uses Maine grown wools and llama blends. Yea!!!! Her patterns are available for sale at Pinetree Yarns.
Well I cannot show you the beautiful harvest from my garden this year. Mostly summer squash and buttercup squash made it through the damp, wet spring, the rainy summer and the cool late summer that we are experiencing now. The celery and broccoli didn't do too bad, but it is all eaten up and none was left to freeze for winter. These Jerusalem Artichokes look just beautiful though, I suppose I could dig up the roots and eat them. Romeo and Uma are enjoying the lower leaves, and will ultimately eat the whole thing when the first frost sets in. This week I will work on sorting another 250 lbs of fiber, clipping Uma is high on my "to-do" list as well, and Joker's bachelor pad needs securing. I am hopeful that we will have a beautiful Indian summer. Why not, we deserve it.
The cool, dry, sunny weather puts an extra spring in my step, and makes me feel very artsy-fartsy. Time to get cracking on the entry for the New York Sheep & Wool Festival. Last year I won 1st place, this year I am going for Best In Show ... hmmmmm I wonder what Betty is up to? ( wink, wink).
