New Banner

I made a new banner for my etsy shop today and I think it might be my best one yet. Go check it out if you get a chance. It's raining here and All I plan on doing is curling up on the couch and knitting, and maybe drinking some tea and defiantly watch some Pride & Prejudice.

The evenings here are starting to feel a bit cooler and you can smell fall in the air. I am hoping this fall actually feels like fall. The past year fall has been just as warm as the summer to only plummet us in to the freezing depth of winter come December and we really had no spring here in Philly one day it was cold and the next was a heat wave were one was worried that the humidity would suffocate you.

This weather gets me geared up for fall and I'm contemplating new project for the cooler months along with new patterns, but I love to revisit my previous patterns. One of my favorite is the Fall of the Leaf Fingerless Mitts, I may have to make a pair in red or maybe orange.

What does the fall hold in store for you?

I'm Back!

Yesterday was the last day of camp for the staff and I am now happily home in my apartment in Philly. I won't start my usual posts till after labor day, but its great to be back. Simon and I are working on the apartment and last night I made veggie curry. I really missed veggies and fruit that isn't banana's this summer.

I am excited to get back on the blog band wagon and want to put a question to the readers. What would you like to see more of on this blog?

Well I'm off to drink coffee, and get ready for the day!

Happy August!

It's August and I have 20 days left here on the farm and then back to Philly with me. Actually Simon and I spent our day off yesterday home in Philly. I'm missing home more so this summer than my other summers at camp. Yesterday was great, I went to my favorite coffee shop, had lunch at one of my favorite restaurants, went to my LYS, and saw friends who I haven't seen since I went to camp. I also drank some gin and tonics with said friends and had a wonderful time.

I have plans for a sweater pattern to be out this November, or October if I'm feeling ambitious. Any suggestions? Pull over, cardigan, hoodie?

I am itching to get knitting again!
