That luscious Merino Lamb that I have been spinning has seriously been calling my name. So has the idea of Fair Isle knitting. So ... since I had all three of these colors spun up... I decided to give it a try.
This is going to be a toboggan cap when it is finished. Go here... Knitting Nonni .. and you will see where the inspiration comes from. I keep telling myself that someday I will be able to do that...lol
Yesterday was quite eventful... in a quiet kind of way. Our finances went out the window..lol Can you guess why?

Today I feel like I have been run over by a truck...
Yesterday was spent sitting in a room at the allergists office from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm and getting shots every 1/2 hour until 12 and then every hour until 2... This is called a Rush. This is supposed to be worth 6 months of weekly allergy shots if you go every week.
The pic above is of the left arm. Ten shots in this one. The one on the right is of the right arm. This is the very last shot... only one on this arm. I sure am glad I chose not to put that one on the left arm too...lol
He also found that I have a sinus infection...boooo. Anyway, I had no idea I would feel this badly the day after!
The thing is that I spent the day knitting on DH's socks, my Falling Waters Scarf, spinning with the hand spindle trying to make enough singles to dye different colors for embroidery on my Nine Patch Hand Woven... I had plenty to do.....
Off to spend the day in my chair... Tomorrow will definitely be better...

Sunrise... a new beginning every day...

This is a much harder fill-in-the-blank than I thought it would be. This is one sentence of an email that my aunt sent to me and I thought it would be a good thing to fill in each day...you know...kinda "get off on the right foot" kind of thing... phew... I don't think I have ever just sat down and thought.. "OK, what is my purpose for today?" lol...you'd think I could come up with something!
However, I am terribly thankful that the election is over. I am still concerned about the welfare of the nation as a whole... but perhaps new blood is what is needed in Washington. We shall see.
We went to town yesterday and shopped in a few shops. Christmas decorations are already out and you know what that means... Time to start counting the days. I think the holiday season has become very commercialized, but I nevertheless enjoy the fact that families get together...and if not for the holidays, this may not happen so frequently. Besides... I love to give gifts..lol
Daylight savings time has ended and this picture is our meadow at 5:45 pm these days. The autumn winds have almost blown all the redbud's leaves away and the meadow grass has turned brown. The days are cooler and last night ..for the first time...we were too cool with only the one quilt and our sheet for cover. I am seriously considering making a king size quilt...a first for me. We'll see if that works out... ;o)

I am thinking ... that yesterday's Sunday dinner with DSIL, his mom, and the grandsons made for a very good day. There is nothing so sweet as the smell of loved ones when the hello hugs happening... the shampoo, soap, cologne smells... memories in themselves.
I am thankful ...that I am no longer in home economics... all that looking over my shoulder while I am trying to learn to knit would drive me nuts... ;o)
