The weather has turned!
Last Wednesday they told us on the weather forecast that it was the last day of Summer, but I wasn't so sure as it was quite hot then -
Come Thursday it was like we had been in Autumn for a while already....BRR.....
I went from having a mediocre knitting Mojo to diving into Ravelry to decide what I should cast on first!
As a knitter I am sure you know the feeling?
How I love the cooler weather :)
I am as happy as a pig in mud!
I did make myself a promise to finish what is already waiting to be finished FIRST before I cast on another thing......
Oh dear, I am now knitting my fingers down to the bone, I just want to cast on!!!!!!
I hope I can resist!
Let me show you what I am busy with and what will be worked on for the rest of this week:
I barely remember it....I started this project in December last year :O
Anyway, I have decided it needs to come off the needles, and as such I have been working more-or-less monogamously on this project over the last week.
I am just about done with the sleeves which have roughly 10cm to go, so I am hoping she will be done by the weekend.
When I am done with my pullover, the next big project is just about ready to be put on needles :)
Yesterday, I received my gorgeous sock yarn subscription from Rita @ Spinnwebstube
She mentioned in her accompanying letter that the yarn combo would work out well in a Grandling Shawl and I tend to agree with her.
So, as soon as I am finished with my post today, I will be winding up my yarn so that I am ready for a swift cast on for this lovely piece once my Avalanche is done :)
Would you like to join me?
I will be opening up a thread in my Ravelry group for an informal shawl-along should you wish to join in :)
Besides these two projects I will be hopefully finishing hubby's socks before I cast on my October pair.
Talking of October pair, I have found the perfect yarn for the month, the receiver and I hope, the pattern :)
This is my October yarn
Isn't it delightful?
And the name.....Autopsy :D Perfect for October don't you think?
I have changed the pattern I will be knitting in October as I really need a mindless pattern to work on in the upcoming month and I have been wanting to try a pair of Blueberry Waffles for quite a while now, so I have decided October is Blueberry month!
If you would like to join in the Sock-Along fun, I would love to have you over.
You can find all the info regarding the KAL HERE

I will be sharing this post with all of my lovely creative friends, so do pop on over and be inspired :)
