Fall is definitely here...

I can't believe how quickly the weather turned to fall! This time of year seems almost magical to me - the crisp cool air, the beautiful fall colors, the crunching of leaves underfoot, the romance of a dark evening, hay rides and apple cider, snuggling up in a nice soft warm sweater... I could ALMOST come to love fall. But to me, fall simply means the end of summer and the beginning of 4+ months of being cold, of it being too dark to go for walks before work or after dinner, of shoveling snow and scraping windshields. If we could go directly from October to April and skip the 5 months in the middle, I would love this time of year!

In anticipation of the cold weather, I have started knitting again. I'm hoping to get enough things done by the middle of November that I'm able to add these to my sale, along with the jewelry and purses that I've already created. Here is a picture of my barely-started second knitting project of the season - a scarf with a fairly detailed stitch:

I'm thinking I might try tackling a sweater as my next project. :)
