Fall colours right now are really lovely ... we actually had a bit of frost last night ... and that's pretty much done in my impatience baskets.
Spent yesterday baking & cooking ... had my brother over for dinner ... ham & all the trimmings!
Have been knitting away on Melanies sweater ... I'm almost ready to start the armhole shaping ... so moving right along!
I have had a chance to play ... had decided to try out the pattern for that butterfly in the Summer Garden piece that I shared. It was tricky ... especially to work in one colour ... as I had to figure out where to carry on or when to break and restart the thread ... and I used # 30 thread and a larger hook than the original pattern ( # 70 ). I had a hard enough time with my thread ... and think the latter would almost be too fine of work for my hands!
