Nothing Beats the MN State Fair

Last Friday I went with a friend to the MN State Fair, the largest and best fair in the USA for those of you not in MN.
I absolutely never play games at the fair but on Friday I had a good feeling about the games and splurged on 8 game tickets. The first game I played was the 'squirt gun at the target' game and I came away with flying colors. Winning that game got me the pink tambourine I'm holding. The pig came from 'have me guess your age game'. The woman guessed my age at 9 years younger than I am. Better than 9 years older :)
Here is a mosaic of the rest of the day, click to see closer and for descriptions. Don't worry...I have plans to go twice more so I'll have plenty more photos to show.

It appears that pigs were my animal of choice.

Monkeying Around

This past weekend Kyle & I took a mini vacation to LaCrosse Wisconsin so he could compete in a mountain bike race. It was a nice relaxing weekend. Saturday morning I just hung out at our 'pit stop' and knit while Kyle was out on the trail. In the afternoon I trekked out onto the trail to check out the riders and ran into this giant monkey. There were a bunch hidden along the trail and if the riders guessed how many were out there they were entered to win a cool prize. Our friend Larry won, lucky Larry.
The State Fair begins this Thursday and I'm headed out there on Friday so I'll be able to find out how I did with the socks I entered. Dish rag tag started last Friday and I'm set to receive the box in early September...I'm excited for that. Otherwise hopefully I'll have a FO sometime in the next week to show off, nothing too exciting though. Have a nice week!

As tempting as it was to keep this wee sock, I did send it off to my August wee sock swap partner. I thought about these socks as I was making them, reminds me of all the colors of summer. These little wee socks are just the right amount of knitting for what has turned out to be quite a busy summer for me.

Bicycling Built for Two

We've finally recovered from our weekend away at the mountain bike race. We had a really good time and Kyle rode more laps than he did in last years race which he was happy about. My new bike was a dream on the single track, much better than my rigid grocery getter. I can't wait for next year at 9 mile!
