On the way to work this morning.
Lunchtime visitor yesterday.
View from worksite this morning – there’s snow on those mountains!
Of course I need a Fall inspired profect for Socktoberfest too.
I chose Nutkin for its Fall-feel and am thrilled to use the soft, lush new Panda sock yarn from Scoutleader.
Do you have a Fall project on the go?

I really have to thank my Secret Pal assigned to spoil me this last round, because she has really been wonderful! So: Thank you Scoutleader!! Go say hello to her won’t you?
This is the fabulous package I received this week:
2 skeins of the softest Debbie Bliss yarn to go with the brand new Debbie Bliss magazine! What fun. And the colour is divine — not that I could get a picture of it in our rainy West Coast weather.
She included so many great little extras – lovely candles, a handy notepad, funny kleenex (when did you think you’d hear that?), a mini potted daisy to grow. And my favourite: new linens for my new kitchen! So thoughtful.
They arrived at just the right time – our leaves are changing colour and falling to the forest floor – and now I have Fall pot holders and centrepiece/table runner. I love reflecting the season in my home. (now to do that!)
I also received the latest installment of the 7 Deadly Spins — such fun!
It comes at a great time -I keep thinking I want to try my hand at lace. Annnnd I’ve even bought lace weight and a pattern or two, but…now it’s Socktoberfest! Honestly. I need to find a way to quit my workaday world and knit full time. Maybe then I would get half of the knit plans I have, done. Or at least cast on.
Look at the awesome hand mirror the Pride kit included . Isn’t that clever?
What are you working on? Did you join Socktoberfest?
Me? I’m ALMOST finished my 1st Picot Edged Monkey – here’s a little proof that I do still knit.
Granted, I only returned to it this Weds. and my was it hard to knit through the last 4 episodes of Damages! Egads! If you haven’t seen it yet – go. get. it. Today!
I might have to finish the toe with some co-ordinating colour since I seem to be running low…and have 1/3rd of the foot body to go still. Look for a Socktoberfest post soon!
