Thankfully I love fall. I love the smell in the air, the feel of the cool quiet as you walk your favourite paths. Its a time of settling, of taking stock, of quiet contemplation after spring and summers riotous growth.
We are off to Rock Lake. Hopefully it will be cold, rainy and generally yucky, because that means only the hardiest of souls will be in the campground, and they will be there as we are, waiting for the animals. I have many layers of clothing, and plenty of warm socks, so I will stay cozy. I have lots of warm projects to work on by the fire.
I am going to give the sweater a really big push. I hope to get both sleeves done, and I hope to get the last front done. Once those are done it takes no time at all to finish. There are still some challenges ahead. I've never finished a sweater with a zipper closure before, and I still have to decide what I want to do on the collar - small cabling in blue, or plain stitches in blue? I've taken along moms socks, and I have the bright yellow yarn in my bag to work on some simple socks for me, I have taken the lace.
This most of all I want to do. I really want to get my little lace project to the wrist. Once I do that, I want to start on the other one and get it to the same point. I have a fear that if I don't work it this way, I'm going to lose track of how I am doing decreases, and I'll end up with two very different end results. Its a good thing that the very fine needles came in a set of 5. I can begin with an end of yarn, on the other two needles, and off I go.
Anyway, I'll be busy, with that, with walks round the lake, needlework, and as always, an assortment of books.
