Yay! Improvement....

Finally! New carpet for the steps outside...

(Something weird happened with my picture alignment today... I'm going with it since I don't have time to figure it out!)
A big improvement don't you think?

So, at the knit-in last night, Sue came with her new, 50%-off-at-Macy's, capris:
What? You say these don't look like capris???? Well, Sue tried on a bunch of jeans and these fit the best. She was just tickled that they were supposed to be shorter, but not on her. So, just so you know, the vertically challenged can benefit from the summer clearance for their winter wardrobe!
Also, yesterday this arrived at the shop:
Wonderful, local alpaca from Diane Foley at Sunset Havens.
And it just so happened that Sheila came to the knit-in wearing socks made from this yarn! She says she LOVES it.
LOTS of Show and tell:
Christa's wonderfully warm Einstein coat:

Pat's felted slippers made for her grandson:
Love the suede bottoms!
Wilna's beautiful, soft, cashmere scarf using the Luscious Lace scarf pattern I'll be teaching later this month:
And her socks made with the turquoise/black Periwinkle Sheep sock yarn (sorry can't remember the color name - Karin can you help?):
These came out so nice - the little bright spots peeking out make them so wonderful!
Yvonne's woven scarf -- she took the weaving class this past weekend and finished her project in just a few days! She loves it!
Darla's collection of woven items made when she was home sick recently! Several are made with a new Encore color in a beautiful fall colorway.
Karen's Irish Hiking Scarf made with the Baby Alpaca Grande:
Denea's felted Christmas stocking with embellishments!:
Cece's Nancy's Scarf made with her own Jacob wool and other wool:
Bags from the Sheep Tote class:
Aren't they great?????!
Pat's socks made form the Lemon Thyme Periwinkle Sheep sock yarn:
Pretty pattern on them too!
And finally a sweater made by Joan (??? -- sorry, can't remember!) with yoarn given to her - she's just getting back into knitting and came up with this beauty:
Whew! That it for show and tell.... for now. Keep them coming!

Well, it's called Black/Turqoise. lol. I initially dyed it for Anna Zilboorg at the Sock Summit (you know, the Luminary Panel colorways).

This is the first one in a series which will be revealed in time for Rhinebeck.

I love seeing all the socks made with my yarn...what amazing knitters.
