Fall and Catching Up

Oh hello!
It's been a few weeks since my last blog post.  I'm still trying this thing out you know.  I feel I have lots to share, but very little time to share it. We'll keep going like this and see how it goes, hows that?  A shout out to Andi over at My Sister's Knitter blog for the encouragement!!  Love you Andi!

Well, let me start off by asking, have you seen Fall?  If so, please tell her we're missing her in the South.  We did have one beautiful Fall weekend a couple of weeks ago and just in time for our town's annual Fall Festival 5K.
My youngest daughter and I always try to make this fun run.  It's become kind of tradition and sets off the season for us.  The following weekend, I had the pleasure of getting together with a couple of great knitting friends. We had so much fun!! We spent the entire weekend together and we were like kids, no one was ready to go home at the end.  We did a group cast on for a project [2nd Avenue by Amy Miller]and flashed our project bags over Instagram showing our lovely host's beautifully decorated for the season table. 
 No, your eyes don't deceive you, we have matching Fringe Supply Field bags.  Here's a look at my color selection for our project.
And my project status...believe me not much has changed on my project from that weekend because I had to frog my first go at because of my previous poor color selection.  I think this is a winning combo, so I've restarted the project and loving the thought of my friends knitting it too.
And no knitting weekend would be complete without a trip to the yarn store.  Here's the only picture of my loot in it's entirety because we all know...A Lady Never Discusses the Size of Her Yarn Stash.
There is a little life to chat about this time around.  I've been having shoulder pain for a few months and dismissed it as a pulled muscle, it turns our its a little bit more than that.  I have a rotator cuff impingement.  I'm getting physical therapy for it and thank goodness my knitting didn't cause it, nor is it affecting my knitting!! 

I hope you have a lovely next few weeks and enjoy your LIFE and KNITS!!


  1. oh the autumn colors in this post, makes me love fall all the more! I hope your shoulder improves! That sounds painful and would affect knitting. I hope to not rip out any knitting but just might since I'm not swatching - living on the wild side :)

  2. We're still waiting for fall to appear in SoCal too! I love the cute stitch marker on your WIP, they make knitting more fun don't they :) Sorry to hear about the shoulder injury a rotator cuff can be slow to heal as I found out after tweaking mine on a new yoga move!

  3. You go on the 5K! And how cute you run with your youngest. I can't wait to see more of your 2nd Avenue. It'll be fun w/all of those patterns in it. Thank you very much for your encouragement. I'll tackle those cards this coming week.


Thank you for your comment.
