It is a grey, damp day here in Eastern PA. It's not raining yet, but heavy soaking rains are forecast beginning around Noon and lasting about 12 hours! I may need to build a boat to get home.
As I mentioned in my post yesterday, a bit of unraveling did occur this week. In my defense I was not feeling well (the tooth issue and a cold? or allergies?) when I started Colin's blanket. The pattern is North of the River and instead of starting with the bottom border I skipped those rows completely and jumped right into the set up rows. LOL I have since re-started. The border (seed stitch) is almost complete:
That is a bright yellow!! This is a bulky yarn (using a size 11 needle). The pattern calls for Super bulky yarn and a size 15 needle, but I think that would ruin my hands...so instead I am adding pattern repeats to make the blanket a good size. I'm hoping to make a bit more progress on this tonight.
There was no knitting at lunch yesterday (working straight through these days), but I'm hoping to sneak in a little bit today on the socks for my sister-in-law.
Now that it feels like Fall has finally arrived, I changed out the runner on our buffet and am back to lighting candles at dinner time.
The vase is holding Beauty Berry - so pretty. We don't have that on our property, but Fletch was at a client's on Monday and brought some home.
We do eat by candle light each night now that it is a bit darker. The little tray with gourds, candles and pine cones just about blends into my Fall tablecloth. The gourds are some Fletch picked up before we went on vacation and we had them on our table in the camper.
I'm between books right now and have been too tired at night to start something new. Fletch and I did finish Tom Sawyer while on vacation and are now reading "Tender is the Night" by Fitzgerald. I had read this years ago, but am enjoying it once again.
Linking up with Kat for Unraveled Wednesday. Hop on over to her blog to see what she and others are making and reading.
