seriously playing

Man is most nearly himself 
when he achieves the seriousness of a child at play. 

We were without internet for a few days.
Needless to say,
it gave me time to play with new photo processing apps.

I caved after a couple days and took my knitting and iPhone to the nearest
Starbucks for a social media fix. 
And to knit of course!

Expect the unexpected, and whenever possible, be the unexpected.
~ Lynda Barry

New yarn. Unexpected.
Old pattern. Expected.
New venue. Unexpected.

Two out of three isn't bad.

Seek always to do some good, somewhere.
Even if it's a little thing, so something for those that need help, 
something for which you get no pay 
but the privilege of doing it.
Albert Schweitzer

A chill has returned to the air.
Misty mornings abound.
Scarves and wool socks have been pulled out from storage.
Leaves are turning red and gold.
This is my time of year...and I'm loving' it!

Finally. Something new on the needles. 
The knitting is slow, but sure.
Very slow...truth be told.

Too many leaves to chase.

I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.

Every difficulty slurred over 
will be 
a ghost 
to disturb your repose later on.

approaching possible

It always seems impossible until it’s done.
~ Nelson Mandela

The first sock is nearly finished. It is taking FOOOOORever! 
I have looked at blog posts from a few years ago and I was knitting socks so fast
it would make my needles spin.
I will be lucky to get a half-dozen pairs finished this year.

Oh well.

I must be busy with other things.
Must. Be.

a parable

A  little iPhone photography for our glamour shots today.
The Toasty Twist socks in BMFA STR lightweight 'pitter pat' are finished!

This was the perfect color to celebrate a long and hot summer!!
Right autumn yarn stash is calling to me...
...and hopefully crisp, cool days will follow my lead!

Stay tuned!

The end of a melody is not its goal: but nonetheless, 
had the melody not reached its end
it would not have reached its goal either. 
A parable.
~ Friedrich Nietzsche
