The anticipation is killing me!

I just can't wait to go to Rhinebeck! And we aren't going until Sunday, which makes it an even longer wait. But for those of you who have me on your bingo card - this is the scarf I will be wearing. BB wanted a turn first of course. You can't tell from the layers around her but this thin is ginormous - 12 1/2" wide by 7 or 8 feet long. You won't miss me, believe me! Unless of course the temperature spikes, but I doubt it. The Kid will be with me, and also the medium sister. All of us are counting the days. This is the Geometric Scarf in Vogue Knitting On the Go series, Scarves Two. The yarn was Aurora 8. This thing is WAY bigger than gauge, but I am 5'10" so I can get away with a giant scarf. Think we were geniuses about the yarn sub? These are the only leftovers. And because I am trying to get things out of the stash not put more back in, I turned the scraps into this for Caps to the Capital. There wasn't enough left of the olive to get a second hat, so I put that tiny bit of yardage in the oddball box in case the scarf ever needs darning.
BB looks like she is wearing a fez.

The Kid and I both went for new glasses this morning, where I got the dreadful but expected news that it it time for progressive lenses. They won't be ready until next week, so I may be a little squinty at Rhinebeck too.

The last crochet design I sold (the cream raw silk for those of you playing along at home) will actually be the first one that hits the news stands. I believe it is being shipped tomorrow, and as soon as I find out for sure I will show you the sweater. I like it a lot, even if I do say so myself!

Three more days.....

My parents in Colorado recently purchased two Alpacas. Birthdays and Christmas are coming soon and I would like to send gifts which would be helpful in their new venture...I do not own them so I haven't a clue what to send. Do you have any ideas?
