October Arrives


I was worried that the only thing I would ever knit forever and ever was feather and fan wash cloths. 
 
 
I love this green and white variegated yarn

It's the only thing I've wanted to knit for months.
 
 
 

Finally, I'm in the mood to knit something new and slightly larger than a wash cloth. I think it's because we finally got a few drops of rain and the temperature outside dropped from scorching hot to reasonably comfortable. Changing the calendar page to October seemed to help, too.

Last night I cast on and knit a few rows of a bolero for my niece Lily called Entrechat, designed by Lisa Chemery.

This color is called Jumping Jack
 
I love it in the dusky pink, but I'm knitting it in variegated Cotton Batik from Universal Yarn. It's super soft and Lily loves lots of bright colors. 
  
This little deer was made in Japan, I think in the 1950s - 60s
 
My quest to find cute and unusual vintage items for my Etsy shop continues. I'm fortunate to live in an area with lots of thrift shops and estate sales.
 
 
I believe this micro mosaic bracelet comes from Italy circa 1970
 
 My family has been generous about giving me vintage jewelry from their stash to sell in my shop.

For a year now I've belonged to a book club that reads young adult (YA) books exclusively. It's a wonderful group of women that includes educators, writers and booksellers. This summer I pretty much abandoned adult fiction for contemporary YA novels, and I have to say I've enjoyed it immensely.
For the Record was hard to put down 
 
Thank you to Yarn Canada for featuring my free patterns on their website.
 
 
 
 
 
Happy October to you.

I second Theresa, I had 7 inches of rain by 1:00 and since it's still raining I'm not sure what we are up to. My yard is a pond, the ditches are full and water is running over the road, yuck!
I'm glad you finally got a break from the heat and you knitting mojo is picking up.

Yes, the cool weather just makes us want to cast on something warm doesn't it! Cute sweater.
