As the season shifts to crisp and cool air, I find myself with my knitting constantly
within reach. This autumn season seems to be quickly passing me by. Yesterday we
went to our local orchard to pick apples and they informed me their season for u-pick
had ended last weekend. So, off we went with a few purchased bags of apples and cider, making
a mental note to be a bit quicker on the apple picking scene next year.
Back to my knitting endeavours. I organized my knitting bag and pulled
out three unfinished projects! However, after a moment of guilt passed, I
proceeded to pick out yarn for a new project. You fiber addicts won't scold me
will you? You know you have done it too:-) Well then, currrently on the needles are
these cozy slipper boots for my daughter Jillian's Christmas gift. The free pattern can
be found HERE. I am using a wool/acrylic blend on these so they can be tossed
in the wash. The yarn is by Plymouth and I went with two strands of yarn.
I am still enjoying Adventures in Yarn Farming and a Grace Livingston Hill
novel called Blue Ruin. I pick up old copies of her novels at the second hand
book shop a town over. They are, I guess, romance novels. However, the stories
always have a Christian moral and center heavily on old-fashioned homemaking.
What's on your needles and nightstand today?
