Hello fall - are you out there?

I love fall. It is quickly becoming my favorite season. Now that it is October I want to be bundled up at football games, eating cider and donuts at a cider mill and pulling out my sweaters. However, none of these things can happen because of this.


Seriously, 85 degrees in Michigan - in October! WTF is up with that? Now I like warm weather as much as the next girl but this is to much. I just hope that at the end of the month it is not 25 degrees and snowing out.

Even with this crazy weather I have been knitting. I made some pretty good progress on my sock Sunday. My bud Christine and I hung out at the 'Bou by our houses and knit for a few hours. This was a perfect kick off for Socktoberfest. If I can keep this pace up I may come close to completing the pair before the end of the month.


I have also been progressing on my Icarus. I am about a quarter of the way through the first chart. I am still hoping to be able to wear this to church on Christmas Eve. We will see how that goes. Until next time ....

The weather here is crazy too. I would totally trade your 60s for the mid to high 80s though! Happy Socktoberfest.

Yeah, if I lived in Michigan I would want my money back :)

Is that the yarn you won from me? It looks lovely!

I'm enjoying the weather but at the same time....I feel a little off kilter.

WTF is right. I want to wear sweaters, not just be sweaty! It's so confusing-- like you think it might still be July or something, but then it gets dark at 7. ???

I've been very disgrunted I can't get my cider, donuts and caramel apples yet! Well I could...but I refuse to because it just isn't right!!

It is so hot here! And horribly muggy! It is Houston, and we don't have winter. But can't we get a little cooler?

Love your new roving! And congrats on the great doctor appt.

I think your winter moved over here to Seattle. We've had no fall, just jumping straight into winter. High 40's-low 50's here and raining like hell. The leaves are drowning and getting knocked off the trees before they can even turn! We even had some snow a few miles from here. Brrr. and yuck.
