Knitting, Rutabagas, and Pretty Dresses


I took a knitting class in Ithaca yesterday, at a great little shop called Knitting Etc. My instructor was very kind and patient. She taught me the basics of casting on, knitting, and pearling; and we started a scarf. I thought I had it down no problem so I took it out again on the drive home to see if I could do it on my own and of course I messed it all up. Dropped a stitch or two, and missed a stitch or two a long the way. 🙂 So now I’m trying to figure out my mistakes, yikes!! Just look at my concentration…

After the knitting class we stopped in at the Ithaca Farmers Market. Where they were having a Rutabaga Curling Contest. Oh my what a funny sight! As we walked into the market three Rutabagas rolled across the board walk right to our feet. Then we looked up to see the participants and realized we were in the middle of a classic and unique Ithaca event. Not sure what all the rules were, but it looked like fun.

Finally, Linda and I had a good time this morning trying to get the right picture of Ellie in another Marcoccia vintage, circa 1973 compliments of Aunt Danielle. I love this dress! She looks so beautiful don’t you think? The photo session didn’t go so well for us amateur photogs, but you get the idea. She’s a little Christmas Angel and her parent’s hearts are soaring.


  1. Merry Christmas! I just want to tell you today before I totally forget.
