After the rain

On Sunday it rained all day, bringing an unexpected benefit. When I stepped outside Monday morning I was greeted with this lovely scene-- the sun hitting the damp creek bank, causing swirly mist to rise. It was a nice way to start the week.

The wet weather made for a perfect afternoon of knitting. I finished this Modern Cabled Baby Bib (Ravelry pattern) knit in a cable and seed stitch combination. The yarn is Jil Eaton Cotton Tail that I found at my local yarn shop. It is a deeper shade of green than I was able to capture in the photo. I liked the yarn so much I want to knit a few more bibs in different colors.

On a different subject, it was interesting reading about your experiences with bats. So many of you have had bats in your backyard and in your home that it really surprised me. As the weather is growing colder here the bats are getting more and more active in the evening. I can enjoy their presence since they aren't roosting in my attic or patio umbrella!

I hope you are enjoying your week. It's hard to believe Thanksgiving is just around the corner.

The photo is gorgeous and I just love that bib! The seed stitch really pops out in the cotton. I love seed stitch until I start knitting it!

Very cute bib Ms. Goldenbird! I can't believe Thanksgiving is just around the corner either -- I'm soooo not ready!

Such a beautiful photo Stacy! I love my surroundings after the rain. Your baby bib is beautiful:)
Enjoy the bats. The ones that live in our garden start flying around at dusk and they fly so low down where we are standing, it is amazing to watch...

What a great photo! The way the sun shines through the mist...wonderful!

Love your new 'look' for your blog, don't know how long you've had it, but love the birds/nests at the top!

I like your new header -- and the photo.

The bib is darling. A more competent person than me would knit a mirror version and them sew them together for a sweet little purse!
