I don’t have any knitting content for you this post – I didn’t want to show you pictures of the same sock, same shawl, but I am hoping to have some finished objects for you in the next week (or so). I was able to frog the shawl back and fix the mistake, and now I’m clipping along. But I haven’t had a lot of knitting time this week, so its not going as fast as I wanted. I have to admit – I don’t think I did a great job with UFO August – although I frogged several projects, I haven’t finished anything, and I am just about out of time. So I’m really hoping to spend lots of time knitting this week so I can have at least one thing done.
I can’t believe its almost the end of the summer – its been a weird summer here in NJ – cool and rainy for the most part – with hellish heat and humidty in the last couple of weeks. Not good weather for golfing, gardens or lazing around in the pool. But I’m ready for the fall – I’m ready for cool days and nights, and leaves turning, and apples on trees. And a new sweater on the needles. Not to mention the fall fiber festivals. I don’t think I’m going to Rhinebeck this year (too crowded) – but I do think I’ll go to the Garden State festival and I’m hoping to go to Stitches too.
I know – they seemed like such different colors at the store when we picked the colors and got the samples. We are leaning towards the second from the left – but I’m not sure we really love any of these, so we may start over with new samples. My sister suggested that we stripe a wall (she’s an amazing painter and did it in one of her rooms and it looks so nice) – so we need to figure out two (or more) colors to do that with. I’m really looking forward to re-doing the room – its been green since we moved in 6 years ago, and its time for a change. And we are going through the house, getting rid of things we don’t use and decluttering. Feels so good to do that!
We had a busy weekend, but we took a few minutes this afternoon to make some tartlets – I am really looking forward to dessert…
OK, off to have dinner – have a great week!
