fall like weather means.....knitting!

I went to the Fabric Place very innocently last week just to "browse" and they happened to have a great sale on yarn. I grabbed a hand basket and started piling yarn into it...there were so many great colors and textures and I kept thinking about all of the things I could make. Then reality set in...I already have a partially finished baby blanket, a barely started hat, and the cuff of a tiny mitten on my needles. So, instead of loading up on lots of fabulous colors of cotton/wool blend (a whole rainbow of colors), I chose just a few. I also chose some lightweight wool in candy corn colors, and some super soft merino in my sister's favorite color. The candy corn colors are already taking shape into a simple project from my knitting daily newsletter (after I had unravelled another project I had started with them). I've made a promise to myself that I'm going to finish the projects I start...stay tuned for photos of the candy corn colored knitted thing I am making!

You've inspired me to break-out the needles again! Not sure my skills will take me much past a hat or scarf, but maybe i'll get brave and try...
