fall in the air

I had a lot of things I wanted to write about today.  The different things that let you know it's actually fall again.  But the specific one that is on my mind right now is 'you know it's really fall when your kid brings home a super-cold and spreads it around the house.'


Oh!  I have a picture post I'm working on for either this afternoon or tomorrow morning depending on when my camera re-charges.  I've written all the words, but the camera took a nap after only a single picture.  Luckily, I've got a new battery charger!

Today is rainy and grey, with a moderate breeze.  It's perfect knitting weather, and I don't intend to let it go to waste.  I have a grey stripey blanket I need to finish (30 rows, and 1 million ends to weave in from done), and I need to spend some concentrated time doing suggested (and MUCH appreciated!!) edits to a couple of patterns.  Plus, I have a little boy sweater to finish sleeves on.  Bless stockinette for it's simplicity!

Hopefully by 5 today there will be a much more colorful post.

AH, yes.  If you don't read Knitty's Blog today is a good day to check them out (although really, there's no bad time).  They partnered with Quince and Co for a giveaway and a code for 10% off.  You  know I love their yarn.  It's a great value for the money, never mind that it's delicious to work with... so if you've got the opportunity definitely treat yourself to a perusal of Knitty Blog and the 10% off code for Quince.  Your needles will thank you!


  1. Ugh for colds. I'm just getting over one I picked up in the office. Not fun :(

  2. Colds drive me crazy 'cuz you're only sorta half sick. Not full-out so you can stay in bed and suffer in comfort sick, just "Why am I standing here doing dishes, vaccuuming and everything else that needs to be done even tho I feel so yuckky" sick. Take care.
