depends on how you look at it

Funny how having so much to show and tell can block you up just as much as having a scarcity, isn't it ?  OK then, 5 minute post to share some color. Because I have been all about the color & light lately.
Carrots in Maine, while at Fiber College in early September. Backlit. So lovely.
 Directly lit. So, ummm, happy to see me? That's Kirsten Kapur (Through the Loops) behind them.

Being part of Fiber College is a joy, with days of almost constant motion--yet somehow this is what I love and remember it for --the early morning coffee and peace along Penobscot Bay outside our cottage.
Of course I've been knitting. And crocheting. And ripping out and re-knitting. And planning more knits. And more ripping out. And then re-knitting.....this Big Ass Granny Square ™ right here?  Larger and done. More about it soon.

ps I'm teaching at Rhinebeck! That's right at the NY Sheep & Wool festival in just a couple weeks. Photo Safari. We'll wander the festival like a pack of photo hooligans*, shooting sheep and all manner of FO's.  Also, more teaching, at VogueKnitting Live, in January. Info here.
*Just kidding no hooliganism. But it'll be lively.

Thanks for posting about Fiber College. Every time you do I want to attend even more. And next year I'll be on leave in the fall, so I might just get to do it!!! I really hope you'll be teaching there again.

Hope you have a great time at Rhinebeck this year!

I thoroughly enjoyed my day at Fiber College and my 36 or so hours in Maine! Thank you for giving me the opportunity to participate. A bientot!

Hi Gale,
I loved meeting you and taking your course at Fiber College. Since then I've really been working to improve my blog and it's getting addicting! Love the photos of the carrots, especially all the colors in the ones with the light coming at them (second photo). I hope you'll consider doing a follow-up class at Fiber College 2014. Meantime, I look forward to following your blog.

I love your granny blanket. I have been gearing up to make one but was undecided about colours but I think I just found the combo I was looking for. Will you post more pictures soon? Thanks for sharing, Carla

Seriously, some year I will make Fiber College. I'll pack along some white wine for after hours shenanigans.
