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|
|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|
Happy October to you.
