Crafting On

Martinmas with One Sleeve

What refreshment it was to open all the windows in the house and have a cool wind come in. We took a drive last night in air that was around seventy degrees. The air was so heavy with humidity, though, that it looked like rain when you looked into the mountains. We drove into the woods a little bit and there was no rain, but a thick fog up on the ridge.  Maybe the weather is shifting--it looks so much milder for the next week.  It's funny to think of lower eighties meaning mild, but that heat wave was no joke!  We've been wearing pants lately, to keep off the mosquitoes, and it's not been too hot to do so.

All that aside, here is the Martinmas Sweater with one completed sleeve.  I started on the second one last night and I feel confident it will be finished in time for me to make another smaller one before Martinmas.  We are having sweater moments, as I might call them, already.  In other news, I've been canning a lot, crafting and preserving good things to eat through the Winter.  It's been pizza sauce and bread and butter pickles most recently.  I put about three pints of blackberries into the freezer every other day and we all stare longingly at the apples and prolific pumpkins.  It won't be long!

Looking great! I found a tiny bit more of this yarn at home, so if you're a cuff short, let me know.

Thanks! I think I can make it. I hope. ;-)

Oh, you're almost done with the sweater! I am getting jealous, hearing about a cool wind like this. :) Apples and pumpkins... just the sound of that brings a smile to my face. Autumn, come any time now...! - Stacey

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
