Bazaar Bizarre and More Presents!

Nikki and I had a great time at the Bazaar Bizarre in Boston! Through a little sleuthing, we found out that the BB was starting at 12 instead of 1 and that the first 300 people would receive a tote bag full of goodies! Needless to say, we made sure we arrived early, so early that we had time for a photo shoot:

The new buttons on the back of my white hat:

My big purchase of the day was two t-shirts from Birdhead Designs. One is a present, the other is for me!

The rest of the weekend was spent napping and knitting. I realized that I wouldn't finish some of the more complicated patterns I had planned for Christmas, so I experimented with a few quick and easy scarf patterns. After the weekend we had, I think it's appropriate to name this first pattern "Challah". Doesn't it look like the braided bread?

I'm going to try a different combination of cables for the second scarf, and post the patterns soon!

You say CHALLAH, I say Knotty bread.... Must be because I've returned to a place much closer to the center of the United States.

I like the scarf. Looks comfy and warm. The picture of us, on the other hand, looks a little strange. I have the pirate action going on with my one eye closed. Haha.

I'm going to work on my knitting tonight in bed. I'll show you my creation when I'm finished.
