Sweater Quest: The Podcast + into the wild

* I marvel much that Chapter 4 of the Sweater Quest podcast is live. (Or will be by this evening...)

* We were away for a bit. All four of us have this week off from our respective schools. And so, thanks to my mother-in-law who has a time-share and joined us, we wandered into the wilds of Pennsylvania for a few days. Very scenic, those wilds.

The Diva spent a tiny bit of the time building a fairy house.

The Boy built a fence for the house, which I didn't get a picture off, and enjoyed eating fruit by the water while fending off the paparazzi.

Oh - and my yarn souvenir from the city, Knitty City, to be exact. I didn't intend to buy anything but couldn't let this little skein get away...

Plus, it goes surprisingly well from the skein that friends Ellen and Delia brought back from New Zealand a couple of months ago and which I picked up this weekend.

It's the yummy foresty green in the back. And the blend? It's merino and - wait for it - possum.

Possum? Are you going to wear that next to your skin? I'm kinda...ew.

Possum!?!

LOL. And you dissed the possum.

The merino/possum yarn is delightfully soft and the best use for those horrid critters.
