Fall

Fall is my favorite time of year. The colors are so dynamic, the air is clean and crisp. A cup of tea and a  fire in the fire pit. And knitting!

This weekend I finished a Waldo hat for my group halloween costume and a hat and scarf set for a friend of the hubbies.


I used Lion Brand Scarfie, that I found at AC Moore recently in the sale bin. It is gray and wine. I thought it came out nicely. The scarf if seed stitch the hat is a basic one with two and a half inch 1x1 ribbing and stockinette stitching.

I had a great many plans for knitting so many things for Christmas. I fear though I may be behind schedule as a co-worker reminded me on Friday just how close Christmas really is, or rather how close the deadline is for shipping things out to arrive in time for Christmas. It makes one start to chew the ends of the bamboo needles.   I hope that where ever you are dear reader you are enjoying clear skies and mild temperatures and some lovely refreshments.
