Saturday, October 28

It's a bright, sunny day, but cold. I have lots to do today but wanted to post the newest pair of leisure sock for SFS.

Will post photos of our newest farm babies as soon as I can get good photos. It's kind of dark in the barn and the photos didn't come out well. There is a buck and a doe and they are so cute.

First snow and doll clothes swap

We had our first snow of the season on the Wed the 11th. It snowed Thurs and Friday, too, but by Saturday it was gone from the ground. It's still cold and windy though. I'm seriously considering giving the rabbits away so I don't have to deal with frozen water bottles any more.

Here's photos of the the clothes I made for the October doll clothes swap. These are for the 18" AG size/type doll. I really enjoy making doll clothes, either sewn on the machine or knitted.

Yesterday I went to the Pumpkin Fest with some of my grandchildren. It happens every year on the first Saturday in October. The main street through town (which is a highway) is blocks off for several blocks and the streets are lined with booths. Some selling crafty items, some food and some games for children to play. In the middle of the street there are flatbeds filled with flowers, squash, pumpkins and gourds. There's also pony rides, an air filled slide thingy and horse pulled hay wagon rides. Some years it's been so cold I had to buy something to put over my ears. Yesterday it was 73 degrees. Very nice.

Speaking of Fall,here are a couple of photos. First one is one of the maple trees in my yard and the other is a view from across the road. The colorful trees are pretty far away though.

Socks for Soldiers

Thought I'd show you the leisure sock I finished yesterday. I'm now knitting it's mate. These socks will go to the SFS (Socks For Soldiers) project. You know, while I sit here in comfort and knit or play on my computer or eat or whatever they are in miserable conditions and in this small way I can let them know I'm thinking about them and I care. Even if you don't knit there are ways to help.
