FROST IS ON THE PUMPKIN

Can it really be almost winter?   The colors of all are falling fast and with the heavy frost in the morning can winter be far behind!   Wood smoke from our outdoor wood boiler fills the air. The smell of the smoke I don't really like but the warm and cozy cabin is great! 

Last week Neil moved our new found friend, Skippy the outside can into his workshop! At first I don't think she was too excited about being indoors but funny how after a week she is enjoying the warm, dry new home!   I didn't want to become attached to her but she forced the issue!    She is just too sweet!

Last week Judy and Teresa came over to hook, crochet and knit!   It was a fun afternoon. 

The week before Judy and I went to St. Meinards for a 3 days and 2 nights to escape the daily grind of 'real life'.  What fun it was to relax and explore the peacefull place.   We went to Bloonville to the VIllage Mercantile quilt shop and all I can say is WOW!   The display items were wonder antigues and the shop samples were great.  Makes me sort of want to quilt..............OK not now! 

Think I'll spend some time this afternoon knitting.   After all the baby hats I've knit lately this time I'm starting something for me!

We're getting 5 to 10 inches of snow on the pumpkin...Boo indeed! What are you going to knit for yourself? I can't wait to see it!

Courtney I am knitting Brady Scarf with some yarn called Kauni. I picked the yarn and pattern up and a fiber fair a few weeks back. Not sure how I like the yarn or the pattern but it is easy so just get it done. You can see it on Raverly.
