Slopes was just going to be too warm....temperatures in the 70's...I have one sleeve and the yoke to go...
Meandering Top, because it's a fancy "tank top" Worked on it for quite a bit, well after ripping out ALL the short rows and restarting, because I had no idea where I was in the pattern....was home today with a flareup....but still don't think it'll be done....
And oh....so freaking excited! My friend linked me to the Mason-Dixon post this morning and I'm in there! With my Rhinebeck sweater from last year! She didn't know my name, but I tagged MDK in my very excited Instagram post and she then added our names in (I also left a comment on the post) and now MDK is following me on Instagram!!!!!! I'll see them Saturday night, as I'm attending the Pie Party!
So how has your projects been going? Please share....

I've actually found a few podcasts that keep my attention...it's been tough...I do listen to The Nerdist podcast, but I love Chris Hardwick. But I've had a hard time finding crafting podcasts....I've listened to a few Geeky Girls ones, but have not kept up on them. I found Lovesockwool over the summer and have watched her last few. I really like hers...I love how enthusiastic she is about yarn...and honest about things...I've also watched a few CrazySockLady ones....I'm not sure why they don't keep my attention, but I also don't like being read to and have a hard time listening to books....
Anyway, I went etsy shopping after a few of these episodes....
The green bag is from Carolina Girls...I have not watched their podcast yet, but wanted to support Socktober....I also got the little fall needle keeper from them. Stitch markers were also included with that bag.
The yarn is from Camel City Dyeworks in Bug Juice with a corresponding mini in a deep purple color.
I also received a couple of my club yarns
So, even though I'm still getting yarn, I seem to be on a bag kick right now! One of the podcasts mentioned pulling out her projects and switching over to her seasonal bags...wow! Not sure I have enough for that!
Three day weekend for me...so I'm working on my Rhinebeck sweater...one arm and 8 inches of the body down....I have to take breaks as my hands have not been good this week...

So I am working on my Rhinebeck sweater....I have one sleeve completed...
I had to come home today and wind the four skeins of yarn on the Main Color.....Since there is no dye lot number, how many rows should I go before alternating skeins? Do I just run the skein up the inside? I'd hate to weave in all those ends.....The yarn is from Bartlett Yarn in Maine. It is their two-ply in Jade Heather, Dark Jade Heather and Light Heather. The Light Heather actually has some of the other two colors in it....I think I may love this sweater! I got the majority of the yarn last year at Rhinebeck, so it'll be cool to wear it this year....
And that is all I'll be working on for awhile.....how about you?

my stash acquisitions were posted on Saturday
Sunday, October 1, 2017
I have also realized it is only three weeks until Rhinebeck, so yesterday got the first sleeve done and started the waistband on my Rhinbeck sweater...Slopes..
It's also Socktober, so while I will work on socks, the sweater is my focus....but I did go etsy shopping to take advantage of some of the coupon codes...I did post a stash acquisition update yesterday from what I acquired at the Adirondack festival...today I am heading out to a smaller Fiber and Farmer's market...
So that is me for now.....
