1. My Coffee Shop cowl will have a striped interior/back/lining rather than the planned solid color. I have no idea what I was thinking (obviously, I wasn't!) when I thought one partial skein would knit the entire lining. So, stripes it will be. But they'll be much wider stripes than the exterior/front/outside of the cowl.

Okay, so what do you call the sides when an item is knit to be reversible although one side is meant to be seen and one side is meant to be worn against the skin? Front/back? Exterior/interior? 'Lining' seems wrong because it implies it isn't meant to be fully visible. What do you call the sides??
Have I mentioned how much I LOVE the Oregon Coast Heather skein of Palette?

I just love the flecks of gray mixed with the sandy tans. I'm going to have to knit myself a whole sweater with this colorway.
2. I'm so excited! The Montpelier Fiber Festival is this weekend and I'm going on Sunday. Saturday and Sunday are the only days I've requested off this season and everyone at work has been teasing me about using my vacation time to go look at sheep. Obviously, they are not knitters. But I am, and I can not wait!

3. Almost as exciting as the Montpelier Fiber Festival, I've received a visit from the Candy Corn Fairy. I arrived home from work in the early hours of Sunday morning to find multiple bags of candy corn on my desk. So far, no one has claimed to have put them there. Have I mentioned how much I love candy corn? I love candy corn almost as much as I love fiber festivals!
