Is August Over Yet?

Just back from our quick trip to Portland for wedding #2. The wedding was great. Fun was had by all. I'm a bit smitten with Portland- the trip was like a great first date. I left feeling like it was definitely a place I could see myself living. Too bad Mr. Beagle and I are affianced to another city...

We stayed downtown, as did a group of our friends. We took a quick side trip to the zoo, where the beavers entertained us.

On Sunday, we set off in search of some local Pinot. Pretty country.

On a knitting note, I finally got a chance to track down the sweater I've been slightly obsessed with since seeing in a shop window.



It's actually knit sideways...



...not what I was expecting. In any case, it's got my mind going thinking about fall knitting. Maybe a bulky cardigan could would be the thing to try to design myself...

that sweater is REALLY nice. But it looks to me like one that would ONLY look right on someone who is very thin.

Wow. That sweater is amazing. Did you make it yet? Is it a commercially available pattern? If so, pleeeeeeeease share.

I will sleep with my fingers crossed this week in the hope that you have time to mail me at georgeina_baker@hotmail.com.
