With the awfully drawn-out Halloween weekend of madness out of the way, I've finally swept the studio floor of the remnents of costume and gotten back to life as it should be. A really nice, steady flow of cowl orders have been coming in and I'm so pleased to have busy hands as the nights get colder.
I've also been busy finishing a sweater that has seriously been on the sticks for almost a year. It was just one of those projects that kept getting pushed back for smaller, faster projects. And then it was summer, and who wants to knit a giant winter cardigan in the middle of July? I'm on the sleeves now. It shouldn't be much longer, right?
Finally I'm fooling around with something the quilters call "improvised quilting". Basically, you cut and sew and hopefully it turns into something beautiful. It's slow and methodical, and perfect for nights in with a glass or four of wine and a lot of music.
You can always tell that winter's coming in this house. We all get back to work on the things we love.
