Agatha Christie I'm not...
But I have finished the Mystery Sock for Socktober Fest designed by Kirsten of Through the Loops. Thank you Kirsten, you rocked it again!
Mama Blue Simple Merino in Bramble
The only regret is that I chose a shaded yarn, it seems to have obscured my cables. I was thinking it was more semi-solid (whatever that really means). Oh well, I love them anyways. I have come to the conclusion - "one can never go wrong with purple".
Daylight savings today - yay, an extra hour of sleep - or knitting, or reading, or whatever. I feel like it truly marks fall for me. We had a cold snap recently and I was already beginning to feel the heaviness of winter - but fortunately, we have been blessed with some warmer temperatures the last few days - a trick-or-treat without jackets even. (which reminds me, Susan mentioned Betz's roasted Pumpkin Seed trick on her blog - I have never been able to decently roast a seed, til now - it's a winner.) Anyways, I dread winter after last year's epic, repeated snowfall - and then the farmer's almanac is predicting more for this year. egads.
Ah, but isn't that what knitting is for? To warm toes, hands and heads during the chilly days? How's that for turning a frown upside-down? I am thinking ahead of holiday knits - cowls seems to be showing up on my list more than ever. And fingerless mitts, some cabley hats - and my Fiddlehead Mitten kit - that so needs to be knit up - but I am such a stranding learner, I'm afraid to sacrifice this sought after kit. I had better practice, maybe on the Inga. But how about after November? It's NaKniSweMo - knit a sweater of 50,000 stitches in November. Crazy. Right?
