Two More Minnesota Moments

Hi Knitters,
I think the photo above is so funny. I only wish there was better lighting. That is Colonel Mustard in the background with his teeth sticking out. Aren't they a curious pair? My daughter saw this photo and burst out laughing and then said, "Awwwwww."
At the Blue Sky Alpacas offices I loved seeing my designs (and everyone else's designs) sprinkled about the space. Rachel had knit up some autumnal Cupcake Pincushions I did for the Spud & Chloe blog. I love the chocolatey pumpkin spice cupcakes. These cupcakes would make great little holiday gifts this season. It is fun to mix up the colors and try new things.

I have a new hat pattern called, Modern Rib Hat, that I previewed on Spud says! if you are interested in checking it out. I will have it up and available for free download next week sometime.

That's it for today! I am sitting in my hotel in sunny Salt Lake City, Utah. I will be at the Wool Cabin with one of my favorite set of sisters and shop owners, Suzette and Alison, this afternoon for a workshop (I designed a new toy just for the workshop students!) and a book signing from 4-6pm following. Should be fun. I'll share the details afterward.
best, susie

This Alpaca picture just makes me smile. It is so cute.

I hope you have a great time at your workshop. I am jealous; I wish I could attend a workshop put on by you!

Love the pin cushion pattern. I will have a go at making one to give as a Christmas gift. I have just made 72 real cup cakes for sale on Friday morning to raise money for Children in Need, so I will wait a couple of days before I attempt to knit one.

Oh I needed a Colonel Mustard moment.
