world's largest swatch

of course now that donegal is nearing the home stretch it's become completely boring...

hope gave me permission to swatch. and so i give you, the world's largest swatch.

dunadd from virtual yarns, color lapwing, really lovely and complex tweed of green and blue. it was cloudy yesterday when i took the photo, the color is too dark. the cables are fun, fun, fun, and i'm sure another knit blanket is exactly what tom is wishing for for christmas.

saturday night rancher tom and i went to the second annual lake placid rotary's wild game night. absolutely fabulous, great food, decorated tents, country music, prizes, and tons of friends. we had wild turkey, catfish, gator (both tail and ribs), buffalo meatballs, venison, frog legs (not for me), pork, corn, quail, cornbread, and swamp cabbage.
can't even imagine how much work it took to pull it all off without a hitch. my friend linda owns the property where it was held, she's 4th generation floridian, the real deal.
tom and vanessa, the wanna be real deal ;-) doesn't he look handsome in his stetson?

That sounds fun! I wouldn't have touched the frog legs, either. I had bison for the first time last night and it was GREAT.

I love those cables, she and Elsabeth Lavold have some magic goin' on with their cable designs. Is that a new pattern? I'm going to have to check out her website again, it's been a while.
