Fall Might Be Here

After a month of 90 degree temperatures, it looks like fall might be here. It's cloudy outside and may even rain. What a relief! I have to admit that I may have bit off a little more than I can chew this semester again, but that's not the main reason I haven't been blogging. It's just be hot and oppressive for much of September, and I haven't felt like knitting in that weather. I've started tons of things, but just couldn't get excited about anything. I did knit this little bunny to donate to a craft and bake sale that my church will have in a month or so.

I've finally gotten a pair of socks going again too. I get a little bored of knitting plain socks, but I don't realy like knitting intricate ones because they accentuate "unskinny" ankles such as mine. I've gone back to my Loksin pattern. I used to have trouble with it, but I'm finally passed that, and I'm thoroughly enjoying knitting them. I have the pattern memorized, so I don't need to concentrate too much while I'm working on them.

Your socks are going to be great.
It's so easy when one can memorize the pattern.
Hope you'll have a wonderful fall!

Love the bunny! What yarn did you use? And what size needles? I've been experimenting with 'our' pattern (thanks again for the heads up!) and used a 50% cotton 50% acrylic yarn which I like but it knit up too loosely on size 6 needles.

I hear you about ginormous bites impossible to swallow and about really hot weather.

I'm working on a pr of socks too. Must be the anitdote for hot weather.

And Willow doesn't seem to spell check well either... antidote.

I like having a pair of plain sock on the needles at all times. It's something to knit when I don't feel like thinking.

Hope the weather breaks soon! It looks like it's at least going to come down a bit.

The bunny is as cute as they always are!

Now that fall is here, maybe your desire to knit is too. Cute bunny and the socks are pretty too!

Nice bunny and socks! I've been MIA as well. The beginning of the school year is always so busy. We're having another hot day here in SoCal. Will it ever cool off?
