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.
~ L.M. Montgomery

Every difficulty slurred over

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.

flying time

Darn the wheel of the world! 
Why must it continually turn over? 
Where is the reverse gear? 
~ Jack London

I can't believe it has been so long since I last posted.

After a month I'm back with the same pair of socks...LOL!!
But a different cafe!
A small blessing!

And the socks are finished!! Yay!!
Cotty socks by the lovely Carrie aka IGK.
This is one of my all time favorite patterns. 
And it comes with its own picot mods necessary on that front!!
The yarn is from Fiber Seed Sprout.
This is my first time using this yarn.
It is springy and wonderful. 

I have another pair of socks that are almost finished.
I hope it won't take me another month to finish and photograph them.
Fingers crossed!

p.s. When I'm not here you can probably find me playing around on Instagram.
