Adventures in Babysitting

Jersey Twins were in town for the 3rd Annual Escape from Jersey Mama. They had a few forays into unorthodox summer vacation activities, like ice skating
and safe-cracking

Apart from that though, it was mostly summer things. We went to the Howard County Fair featuring punk rock chickens
important information about horse diseases,
massive vegetation,
opportunities for indigestion
and dizzyness,
and the promise of woolly things to come
The fleeces were all covered with plastic, so no fleece petting :( But the Sheep and Wool 2009 flyers were out :)

We got a chance to see a Redskins preseason game. Jersey Girl opted out. Jersey Boy came along and was interested for all of about 20 minutes. I don't think he actually knew the rules, so I can see how it would be confusing.
I started a sock on the way to the game and knit on it throughout.
This is Garnstudio Fabel, my all time favorite self-fair isling sock yarn. As you can see, this is my current commuter sock, so it's grown quite a bit.
I'm also working on another Best Friend Scarf, this time in very colorful handdyed silk.
This is yarn from my spoiler from quite a few Secret Pals ago. It's super nice to knit with and the colors knit up beautifully together. I could get used to this kind of luxury he he he!
