An over abundance of wild apples led to some wonderful baked apples (with pumpkin ice cream - sounds odd but delicious none the less!)
I've been dreaming of a new project and took down some yarn from my stash and went to the yarn shop and had it wound... but haven't had time to cast on. I'm thinking of a warm vest.... the yarn is Briar Rose. A splurge purchase when it was on sale at The Village Yarn shop years ago.
I did finish a cowl I was working on. I LOVE it! I haven't written up the pattern yet but I plan to. I just have to get some spare moments! Ha! Can you write patterns while nursing? I'm not too sure... I haven't tried. But that's an idea. =)
I love the double lace border. Something I first tried out on Mama Ruffles and Baby Ruffles. Ah... love double lace borders. It feels so indulgent! (PS: I actually worked on this shawl while in labor with Arthur so it will always hold a special memory for me.. and yes, I have a picture to prove it but...you don't really want to see me in a hospital gown.)
On another note, Alpaca With A Twist is hosting a fall KAL with one of the patterns I designed for them. The KAL for Lovely in Lace is starting Nov 1! Lovely in Lace is one of my favorite sweaters. I still need to make one for myself... hmm.. maybe I should join the KAL too! =)
What am I reading? Ahh... well, I have returned to one of my cosy books. A bit too indulgent.. but what I'm in the mood for right now. The newest Agatha Raisin, Something Borrowed, Someone Dead.
Joining with Ginny!
