Ok....so fall has passed it's peak, but still the drive through a few New England states was lovely. Stopped to visit a wool farm in Connecticut, a huge restaurant supply store....I was in kitchen heaven, lunch at the Mystic Seaport (yes, Mystic Pizza Mystic)....shopping, water time and wonderful meals in Falmouth, MA....the air was crisp (and the wind was stabbing), but the smell of the sea air around me made it all worth bundling up for...

Ok....I'm starting this New England run with some food and drink pictures... Sometimes, it's so beautiful...I just have to take a picture. I was lucky to have some great food with some amazing people... Unfortunately, I didn't take any shots of my favourite restaurnt on the island...L'etoile...great atmosphere, wonderful food and a couple of yummy drinks (home of the startini) for good measure.

Ok....so I have begun an afghan class that is a block a month. I have been wanting to do this for a long time and am so excited to finally start. I will be teaching the class and have a large group signed up at Haus of Yarn...first Thursday evening of the month. I love the concept of just doing one block a month....doesn't seem as monumental a task...because knitting an afghan is monumental.... Side note...I'm currently working on 6 and 7 of 11. I didn't intend to do 11 but there you have it...some actually for me. But as the year passed, my need to afghan grew or was added to. Since 3 of the 11 are for me....we'll see how that will go.
So, here is Block 1 for November 2013...

Ok....well I made it. Jan and I had a lovely walk around the Cheekwood grounds to see the Bruce Munro exhibit. It was a beautiful weather evening to add to the beautiful fields of light. I'm surprised I got any shots without the tripod, but here you go.... PS...the grounds were so beautiful even without the displays....the trees were coloured and glowing in the light.

Ok....so Fiber in the Boro was a huge success and I'm so happy. All of the booths were great to see and visit, the food was yummy...shearing and animals were fun (I got to feed alpacas) and I LOVED what the Shelbyville Guild did for the kids. Seriously, who doesn't love a little finger knitting and face painting. So....a few photos to enjoy.
