Updates.... Now with Pictures!

I finally got the pics uploaded from my camera, without problems. Yippee! So, on with the show:

Ok, so where was I? Oh yeah, the Medieval Festival. When we go there, the first show we came upon, inside the gates was a Fire Eater show. I don't know if these guys were really brothers, but one of them looked like a really skinny Orlando Bloom. Here are a few cool shots I got in:

The one on top was the one that looked like Orlando.

Here is a shot of Annie and Dillon. Annie had to stand on her tip toes to look through the hole:

And, of course, we can't forget our favorite bare foot bag piper, Barrett:

He reminds me alot of my step-dad, when he was younger. Although, Barrett is probably the same age, if not a little older than dad.

Where else can you see guys in bras assisting a guy in a straight jacket:

We didn't take as many pics as we wanted. But then again, we were too busy shopping, eating and watching the shows as we passed to take a whole bunch.

On to other updates. I am still taking volunteers for th Pay It Forward Exchange. I only need 3, and no one has volunteered, yet. If you'd like to join, just leave me a comment with your e-mail address.

The Harvest Sock Swap '07 sign ups are still open. So far we are doing great. The sign ups have been open for 2 days, and (including me) we have 7 people. Just maybe I'll hold a contest if we reach 20 or more. I'll wait a couple more days to see how we're doing before I make that offical.

And, finally for an update on the Josephine Top. Here's a pic of where I was last night:

From here, I need to knit the sleeve caps (which I picked up the sts for the right sleeve and have it half done), the trim around the neck and the trim around the bottom hem. And for some reason, that whole middle section looks to be a different dye lot, but I made sure I got all the same dye lot. It doesn't look like in person, honest. Maybe if I get enough time this weekend, I'll get it finished.

And, in a bit of a teaser: I taught some one to knit the other night, but they made me promise not to tell who, until they have finished their first project. Drat!

Have a great weekend, everyone, and don't for get to sign up for the PIF Exchange and the Harvest Sock Swap '07.

ah, so jealous! the rennaisance faire near us has been M.I.A. for two years now, so we go to the pirate festival; which, while highly awesome, is just not as diverse a crowd. go figure!
this harvest sock swap will be my first ever knitting exchange/group thing. very exciting!

I have been reading your blog off and on for a few months now. I really enjoy it. Your images are always very cool! The Josephine is coming out GORGEOUS!

I too am on the Grove City area maybe we will cross paths at a knitting event. Keep of the "knit" work and I look forward to reading more!
