excitment is building

saturday and sunday. fingerlakes fiber fest. yes, the excitement is growing here. i'm less overwhelmed this year, having done one festival as the guild leader. the display is clear in my brain and slowly working it's way to having all the parts completed. thank goodness for free, child labor!
amythefibergoddess will be selling these little gems in her booth this year.

last year she had the sock blocker keychain, so when she showed me this (and they come in different wood types) i offered to make the display. how cute is this?? i had the same red yarn in the stash left-over from some long ago pair of socks. can't even say why i held onto the two teeny, tiny balls that were left, but i did. the price of $5 is such a bargain as i saw them in the recent patternworks catalog for 5.99 + s/h. what great holiday gifts... i may need to get more
than one!

this is the next quick knit project that found it's way onto my needles last weekend. my dear partner wears the vests that i hand knit to work, and really frequently, so i decided to toss another one into the mix. mindless knitting....love it!
