Raging RiversLast night, I went hiking along the Potomac River at Great Falls (MD side)... all I can say is "wow." The river has been high all summer due to the insane amounts of rain we've been getting, but there was water EVERYWHERE. The flooding was over- but places where you used to look way down a cliff to the river below now were just a few feet from the water... it was quite a sight. In fact, we spent so much time staring at the boiling, churning waters that we were late starting back to the car, and finished the remainder of the hike in near pitch-blackness. Although night-hiking is not my favorite passtime, we were lucky that we had thought to go on the flat, even section of the towpath, and that the way was easy to follow. :)
Ribbie has now been joined, and, after working on the relatively small sleeves for the last few weeks, dealing with all of ribbie's combined might is a little daunting. Sometimes I think it's trying to take over... :) Of course, the other downside is that a row takes FOREVER. Ah well, soon it'll be finished, and I can order my zippers, and get 2 cardigans ready in time for fall.
Speaking of, now that the air has been getting a little bite to it, I've gone ahead and ordered my flannel sheet set from Lands' End... mmmmmmmmmmmm flannel. I may splurge in another month or so and get a new comforter also- since I pay for my own heat, I'd rather use blankets than pay big $$ to heat my apartment to boiling. Plus, I always sleep better under fairly obscene piles of covers- probably one of the reasons fall and winter are my all-time favorite seasons. :) I keep thinking I should move farther north...
I'm just past halfway on the triangle scarf... I'm making the triangle pattern mirror-image, so hopefully that'll look nice. I'm still debating about fringe... I guess I'll see what it looks like, and how much yarn I have left. Maybe I'll do the fringe in the silver (the scarf will become dark red)... for contrast? Hmmm.... I'll have to think about it.
