Happy Wednesday! Autumn is heading straight into winter around here. We’ve had several heavy frosts lately. The birds are starting to gather around the feeders, waiting for J to fill them again. Squirrels have stripped almost all the acorns from the trees in the front. Sydney’s been on patrol, keeping the pesky squirrels in their place. And I’ve started wearing hand-knit socks every day. Love it!

I’d also love to be able to say that all the socks, or any of the socks for that matter, shared last week have been moved to the FO pile. But they’re still in their bags, a little further along, waiting for some attention. Instead of finishing up socks, I’ve been in a blue mood. Not sad blue. I’ve cast on two projects in beautiful, rich blues.
Since the time of secret, holiday knitting is upon us, I hope you’ll understand if I don’t share too much about these wips. The project on the left is a Mystery Shawl KAL with the Jen Lucas Designs group on Ravelry. One of my first mystery KALs was Jen’s Medallion Shawl. It was such fun and I love her designs. This shawl combines cables and lace. So far, I’m loving the fabric.
The blue and gray on the right is a gift knit. So no details for a while. You could try to guess what it is? Of course, even if you guess correctly I’ll still have to say you’re wrong in order to keep the secret safe 🙂
I’m reading The Wedding Shawl by Sally Goldenbaum. I enjoyed another of her cozy mysteries a couple of years ago. Since I’ve just started, it’s too early to tell you much about it.
Thanks for visiting. Enjoy your day!
