I picked up the unsold artwork from the gallery. I have hung four in my house. I really like most of this work, and I’m happy to admire them on my walls. A couple more will be gifted. So I’m thinking, why submit anything to the juried art show? Eh, I probably won’t.
Work has been busy so I’ve been stimming in stockinette and garter stitch. Which is fine because that’s what my knitting is for. The good news is I’m almost ready to change colors on the Back Porch Shawl and I’m finishing up the gusset of the second Sleepy Hollow sock!
Also, I got a sock ruler! Something I didn’t know I needed but now couldn’t live without. Thank you, Sarah.
I am ready to cast on some leg warmers in Fiber for the People Endor. I am planning to make the Olalie Legwarmers. Not stockinette, but a thermal-esque stitch that looks to be repetitive. Pump your fists in the air and sing along with me, 🎶 “Fiber for the people!” 🎶 That’s what I do every time I think of this yarn. I also think of Ewoks sticking it to the man.
I opened my DIY Autumn Advent bag for October 2. This one I remembered because I love the yarn (Zombie by Moondrake) and it’s a pattern I thought I might enjoy wearing. Will I cast on? Who knows? No promises. Only if I feel like it. How many of these advent bags do you think will end up back in the drawer for next year? That’s right. Most of them. Smoke and mirrors. If it keeps me from buying yarn, it’s a worthy endeavor.
Listening to Music Intentionally
I haven’t been doing much of this, though I’ve tried. I traveled a lot in September, and discovered a new-to-me NPR station out of Yellow Springs, Ohio, WYSO. Every week day, between 11 and 2, the show Excursions plays some really great music. This song kicked off a show about places, and since I went to so many places in September, I decided to share this with you. You’ve heard it. But it’s still good.
