Well, it’s officially October. Time to cast on socks, finish shawls, resist casting on that big cables sweater that’s been in the queue for ages… or maybe that’s just me. 🙂
October makes me think of a lot of things. Crisp cool air, fire places, beautiful foliage, warm blankets, mulled cider, warm sugar cookies, fresh pumpkin pie, fall fairs, bundling up on cool mornings, boots, and scarves, and warm squishy sweaters.
Fall (in general), and the months of October and November (specifically) are, officially, my favorite time of year.
Of course, this time of year isn’t perfect. For a majority of the time, here in New England, you need to dress for at least 3 different climates in any one day. Arctic mornings, Tropical (or at least moderate) afternoons, and cool (but not arctic) evenings. And people wonder why we have closets full of different kinds of coats. We’re not being stylish, we’re being practical!
While today wasn’t the best start to October (it was rainy and cool), you could still see the color on the leaves
They’re just starting to turn outside my boyfriends apartment.
On the knitting front, I’ve ALMOST finished my Infinite Triplicate cowl that I’ve been working on. All I need is a tapestry/darning needle to finish it off. Only problem? I don’t have one with me. This is going to be what I finish when I get home, sewing it up!
Okay, so it’s just the tip of the toe, but still, I DID start them today, and I’m planning on finishing at least the toe before bed.
As for the new goals I mentioned, well… I’m back to looking for work. The place where I started at wasn’t a good fit and so my last day was this past Friday. It came as a surprise to me, but I understand the reasons and there’s no hard feelings involved.
Now to get back on the wagon and start looking again!
Happy Wednesday, and a happy October to everyone!
