102409 019It was only in the mid fifties when we went for our walk today.  I guess Autumn is finally here.  Can Winter be far behind?  At least I have plenty of warm socks.  I was looking at my sock yarn this morning, trying to decide which one to use next.  I have also been looking at shawl patterns to use the lace weight  yarn I bought at Knitter’s Nest.  It was hard to drag myself  back to the baby socks.  I finished one sock of the third pair of baby socks.  I finished cutting all the pieces for the small quilt and started sewing.  Can I get any more boring?102809 007

And he didn’t finish.  So what else is new?  It means another day when I will have to get dressed when I get up.  It’s almost like having to go to work.  Boy, I don’t miss that 4:30AM alarm.  Half the year, it wasn’t even light out by the time I started work.  I don’t miss that job either.

Here’s my new handbag.  Isn’t it cute?  No gagging.

It was nice enough to sit outside for a while this afternoon and knit. 

I finished the decreases for the heel and now I am heading for the toe.

It is really starting to look like Autumn.

There weren’t very many there today.  Most of my favorites were there so it was enjoyable.  Again, we were unnecessarily shoved into a tiny space.  We were also told that we couldn’t meet there from mid November until January.  Our second gathering in November will be at Stacy’s, but I understand her space is small.  Someone knows of a place at the mall and is looking into it.  Afterward, I went out to supper with two others and had  very nice time. 

It has been pretty cold for the last few days, and windy, too.  We are finally having real Autumn weather.  We tolerate it during the day and have a fire going all evening.  About half an hour before bedtime, we turn on the electric mattress pad.  We hate to put the heat on before November.  We don’t want to give in to the cold.
