We went to the De Pere Antique Show on Saturday. We go every year, and seldom buy anything, but we are Red Wing and Carnival Glass collectors so it's always fun to see what prices are doing for items we already own. In an antique show vendors know what they have, so there are no deals to be had. This time was different however. Not the deal part - the dealer knew what she had - but the "seldom buy anything" part. I reached right for my wallet.
On the knitting front I have been churning out socks on Penelope (my Erlbacher Gearhart circular knitting machine), and each pair gets better. The balance between yarn weight and stitch tension on the machine is crucial, and I am finally understanding that better. Here are my latest two. See what you think.
