Fall Feelings

While still warm for most of the week, there have been the faintest hints that Fall is around the corner (which reminds me of the Frog and Toad book Frog and Toad All Year … great book!). Which may be why we found ourselves making this …

Yes, pumpkin pie. A can of pumpkin still languished in the cupboard from last fall and so we had our first pumpkin pie of the season. There are plans for many more!

In the garden the tomatoes are growing like I’ve never experienced. I am eating them daily and still have plenty to freeze. The blueberries are done for the season, at least in our yard, and the leaves are starting to turn red. Yet another sign fall is coming.

I have been knitting another Barley by TinCan Knits in the same yellow Cascade yarn I was working with last week. That and my neighbors’ beautiful flowers are keeping us in the spirit of summer.

This Week …

Today I thought I would do a random Thursday posting of things that I have been enjoying this week. It has been a hot and dry summer here, which is rather unusual, but we are enjoying it and continue to be grateful for our fans and kiddie pool!

1. I love the purple double pointed needles that were my grandmother’s. Also, the vintage pattern book is so fun to look at!

2. I am admittedly not a huge fan of yellow, but for some reason I am really enjoying this yarn by Cascade (pattern is Barley by Tincan Knits).

3. The smell of lavender permeates our front yard. I always think I will dry the lavender and use it in sachets but really I think I enjoy it most when I step out the front door.

4. I love tomatoes and this year our garden plants are providing a generous crop. I enjoy them freshly picked or warmed in the oven with a sprinkling of salt and oregano.

5. We planted 4 eggplant starts this year and have exactly one very small eggplant growing. We are all very excited!

I hope you have a lovely week and are finding bits of time here and there to knit as school starts and fall approaches.
