Fall Shawls

purpleshawl-6791 green-shawl-7282My Emiliana shawl is finished and blocked and ready to be gifted.  I’m really pleased with how it turned out: super lofty and cozy.  I have a few more projects that I would like to finish before the weather cools.  Of course what I really want to do is cast on half a dozen new projects. I’m working on my Nurmilintu, but Beatrix wants a birthday sweater…

I think today is the official first day of fall, and I just checked the weather and it looks like Virginia is finally going to start cooperating:  highs in the 70s starting Saturday.  You did come to my blog hoping for a weather report, right? My mind is a little empty of words (mental to-do list is crowding out most thoughts), but I’ve got the weather covered, so we’re good.  Better writing to come in October?

p.s.  Those are guinea eggs.  My kids discovered a couple of guinea nests in the yard this week.  They’re sneaky little birds.

p.p.s.  I wrote an introduction over on Instagram.  If you read my blog there’s not much new, but maybe a little bit?
