Some fall photos for a beautiful fall day! Enjoy!

Scott Lake Tree.

A view of Hebron.

View of Scott Lake from the Bowes' house.

Where our retirement house will sit. The saplings will be thinned to be able to see the beautiful view of the Green Mountains.

Where the livestock (goats) were to go. The house will overlook this field.

Favorite place on earth

Yup, you guessed it...Pawlet, Vermont.
Just another shot I took last week.

Weekly Ripple Update

Not much done. Four new colors added. Will show more next week. Not too sure of the browns, I am hoping once I add on some more colors it will blend better.

Finally Fiber Friday.

Some new yarn I recently purchased.
Plymouth Baby Alpaca Worsted, nice and soft but with a very loose twist.
The orange is Jo Sharp Alpaca Kid Luster...I am thinking of frogging the Falling Waters scarf (in the below post) and doing that pattern with this super soft yarn!
Here is Ripple # 4...boy, I have really caught the Ripple Wave!!! This baby is 300 stitches across and the width measures a whopping 92"!!!! It will hang down enough on our double bed to make a full bedspead not just an afghan!
I am really lovin' this blanket and it looks much better in person than the photo. I will try to get a better pix next week, when I promise to post my progress.

Some scarves I am working on for International Scarf Exchange 5.
On the left is the Falling Water LAce scarf-unblocked- done in Rowan Tapestry.
On the right is blue Plymouth Baby Alpaca Worsted in a free Plymouth pattern. In grey is that same pattern in Rowan Classic Silk Wool DK ( great stuff to work with ). The last one is some Malabrigo in a solid varigated ( gives it a nice faded jeans type of look ) using the Corrugater pattern.
Now to decide which one to keep going with.

Federal Goverment: Shame On You!!!

We are NOT ( or should I say, cannot ) retiring due to our close proimity to the proposed NYRI.
The Federal Government has ruled that a private owned company from another country CAN take eminent domain. Hundreds of homes will be taken in our area of Rock Tavern. We are not under eminent domain but due to our closeness the banks are running scared on mortgages.
Shame on you!!!
