It's Fall!

All of a sudden it's Fall, it's chilly in the mornings & I've got the gimmies. I want new boots, new music, more yarn, books, furniture, a new kitchen. I settled for these:

A meat grinder attachment for my kitchenaid.
Homemade sausages anyone?

The latest issue of No Depression, pimp of my favorite music genere, alt-country. Which includes Richard Thompson , Tres Chicas, Whiskeytown, The Knitters, Johhny Cash and bunch of ex-punks who now play non-hat-wearing country with an attitude music.

Also got the new Spin-Off (just subscribe, already) for the article on dyeing & the ads ; )

I'm knitting a couple of scarves for a Family F.U.N auction for Rainbow Families Great Lakes.

I'm working on some knitting things in collaboration with artist Phoebe Gloeckner who's working with the folks that do adbusters and Amnesty International on a piece about the girls and women who are disappearing and being murdered in Juarez, Mexico.

Still the fabulous Big Girls book is in corrections, I know we can't get them all, but we're certainly trying!

How's Fall fallling in your part of the world?

Greetings from Germany

Things are busy here in sunny Seattle. My daughter just started kindergarten, so we've been a little topsy turvy lately. I think I get around to knitting about 1 row a day. At this rate I'll be done with my projects around the turn of the next millenium...
Am looking forward to your book!!

uh, i HAVE the meat grinding attachment to the kitchen-aid. also the grain grinding attachment (all part of wedding gifts)... ten years old, never used. if you truly have some sort of sausage fettish, i'll look and see if it's still there. or you could come to TNNA in january and look for yourself :)

I've been drooling over this photo of our Joint Secret Boyfriend Anthony Bourdain:


I volunteer for sausage-making duty if you get the setup organized, mamacita. Know anywhere we can get venison? (The BEST sausage...yum).

I used to have that attachment but my husband took it up to his restaraunt. Which I don't really mind because Pain in the Ass. And really, I'm going to make sausage?

I love the boots! The kitchen manager at WheatFields has a brown suede pair.
Totally groovy! It's the first day of Fall here in Kansas and it's going to hit 95 degrees! Pant Pant.
