1. Do you think the grey sweater in this Mason-Dixon Knitting post (scroll down a long way) is Saranac?

2. I bought Moppet 2 presents at Rhinebeck: clippers (for her claws) and a harness with leash. We've been practicing with the harness inside, just like the package suggested.

It's tricky to put on over all that fur, but she doesn't seem to mind it too much.

(I bought myself all kinds of spinning fiber, but no yarn. Now I just need to stop knitting long enough to spin it up.)

That guy is totally wearing your Saranac!!!!

I can't believe moppet let you put that thing on her... So cute!

yeah, I thought Saranac, too. I'm pretty sure that is Purling Swine http://purlingswine.com/ and her hubby who looks quite dashing in it.

I hope you had a good time at Rhinebeck. We dashed in and out but I did manage to find one skein of yarn and pattern this year.

About your previous post, I wholeheartedly agree with what you said about Christie. When I find book set in that era, the lifestyle of the middle and upper class women is so appealing (no work, all day to craft and read and have tea). It's easy to forget that the women not in those classes had a terrible time of it. And we won't even bring up the topic of what medicine didn't offer women in the way of health options during that time!
