what I did on my Summer Vacation…


a little color tab for you – take and enjoy…

Spurrred on by the cute little DSL Monkey-on-my-Back, I spent some time online (can you believe it) slacking and exploring all sorts of good stuff. Who could resist visiting the Runway Pages of, WWD, and New York Magazine. Sonic BOOM!

Many thanks to Christian Dior’s John Galliano for waking me up this morning! b.Limey my brother! Oh where oh where is Heidi Klum when we need her! Auf Wiedersehen, indeed! Thanks to Corinne, I now know I can enjoy PR on NBC! Question though, how does someone like ANGELA survive and the possibly talented Malan gets the boot? (Quick: can anybody say “producer-led preference for conflict ratings over real talent.”) Confession: I watched some of the Miss Universe paegant just to See the Dress!

Apparently only some of the Designers in the High End Fashion world actually use the fashion forecast colors, but I like to see what the ranges might be. Looking for some new kinds of worsted weight, I obtained this.


This is a whole sample yarn set from Blackberry Ridge, my neighborly farm source from the North. I’ve seen them at a lot of the shows but thought it would be really cool to have the set to appreciate the colors and textures of the yarns in person.

I got this in the mail about 3 minutes before I met Theresa on the #66 to meetup with Cara, who was here visiting Chicago. We had a great time oohing and aahing over these mini-hanks on the bus while sitting in a seat facing backwards going down the street – always happy to entertain the other passengers with some fiberly fun!

If you haven’t seen this yet, go check out Cara’s trip pix (around July 19)! So awesome that she and her hubbie knew to go visit one of my favorite Chicago Couples, Mr. and Mrs. Superdawg! Did they treat you right or what, m’lady?

Cocktails! Fireworks! Friends! Nothing like meeting one of your favorite bloggers and knitting a few rows under the summer sky!

I toast all ya Knit Bloggers out there with my favorite, a Cosmo…

1 1/2 oz vodka
1 1/2 oz cranberry juice
splash of cointreau
splash of lime

thanks to Glenna for the above and to all for the Vodka recipes!
