First 'bigger' snowfall of the season. Pretty isn't it? It will be gone in a few days and we'll back to the usual grey dark and damp November days.
Bright blue sky
Brilliant sparkly snow
Crisp fresh air
A quiet hush
In a few months I'll be cursing the weather.

I'm having knitting issues, frustrating knitting issues. These issues include lack of motivation to get something done, errors in my knitting, too many projects on the "go" and I can't settle down to finish anything. Sound familiar? And the biggest issue of all - FIT - this is such a challenge for me. And so I picked up a sock I started in the spring and abandoned for summer knitting and even this sock is not FITTING. Huge. Maybe I can gift it to someone with bigger feet than mine. Frrrrrrustrating sometimes. Even the orange hemp top I have been knitting forEVer is not working out. Here's a picture before I get out my ball winder and pull the whole darn thing apart - again!

Today I spent some time outside putting the garden to bed....big empty spaces...bright little maple in the field - corkscrew hazel in and pumpkins.

Knitting ........... I changed my mind on what pattern to use for this pastel wool, Freedom Spirit, that I have had for awhile.....once my copy of "Greetings from the Yarn Cafe" arrived, I knew this would be the pattern I would want...hope it far so good..... The Slouchy Cardigan
