What's in a name? Should this be.... a) Vlad's bite b) I've been bitten c) Black Blood d) Do you have another suggestion?
And, how about this one?
I guess the colors don't really show well. Let's see. It's Raspberry, Navy, Brown and Grey. What do you have for this one?
I will choose the best one and you will get a skein of your choice...Later today I'll have them both re-skeined for you to see and I'll add them to this post. You have until Sunday, Sept. 21st (my 17th wedding anniversary) at Midnight. Drawing will be held Monday morning.

Let's start with Knitting shall we? (See that capital K over there? That means that I THINK that I may have moved into the kind of knitter that starts with a capital K with all these yarn overs, k2togs, and ahem, chart reading...) So anyway, Knitting.....
Above is a pattern by Berocco called Cosima made out of Cuzco by Berocco. Click over there to see all of the colors. Colorful Yarns has all the colors and the books if you are interested. As usual she's got it all...
Now, let me explain. These patterns are a bit challenging for a non-chart reader like me. You are doing something on both sides of the knitting. It's not like some of the lace knitting I've done with purling all the back sides.... Anyway, after some major frustration, and then some help from some of my knitting friends (thanks Stacey, and Jenni), I figured out how to read the darn chart and get on with the thing.
Tonight I knit happily away whilst watching the VMA Awards and realized several things. A) I'm old. B) I didn't even know 1/2 of the people on the show. C) I'm old. D) I am offended, or should I say, bothered, by some of the young people of today except maybe the Jonas Brothers. E) I never, ever, use the word whilst, but the VMA announcer was a Brit and he kept saying it and I pick up on those things, grab onto them, and like to fantasize that I actually AM a Brit, and last, but not least.....
F) I'm old.
Please don't email me, or leave a comment to confirm this fact.
I may do another sale here on my blog pretty soon here. Anyone interested? Let me know in the comments.
And here you can see Kid 2 reading "The Matchlock Gun" for school. Yep. We are homeschooling outside in the sun, whilst drying yarn. (whoops, there it is again!)
The book was finished in a day and she was on to another. What the kiddos don't know is that they are actually learning History in a sneaky way. Gotta love that. They can't get enough...
Where the pool once was, now we have a crop circle. That's Byron on the phone (constantly working) rake in hand, putting away the very cool pool. I'm going to miss that thing. This week the temperatures have dropped considerably, and shows us that the beginning of fall is near. I'm not ready. I LOVE the cool temps, but I'm not ready for snow. At all.
And that's all she wrote for today - and maybe this week. This homeschooling, and running a business sure take time away from blogging and my knitting, but it's all worth it.
