First of all, let me say that I’m sorry for the recent blog issues. I am very frustrated by the current situation and am working on a permanent solution. In the meantime please know that I post Mon-Fri morning and if there isn’t a post when there should be it’s because the server is being bitchy. Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to email me comments and questions – I really appreciate that extra effort! Okay, back to regular blogging.
As much as I love summer I can’t deny the feeling of fall that has been in the air lately. And with that feeling comes a renewed focus on being organized and prepared. I’ve started planning meals again and have been cooking things like chicken-and-rice and American Chop Suey rather than things on the grill. I’ve taken Hannah back to school shopping (she started her junior year today – eeek!) and I’ve actually had to close the windows some nights.
Fall is definitely coming and that means I need to finish Twist. This sweater has been on the needles since April and my intention has always been to have it finished when the weather turned cool. I had the back and one front of the cardigan mostly done when I set it aside because it was too hot around here to have that thing in my lap but I picked it up last Saturday and I’ve been making steady progress ever since. As of last night the back and both fronts are finished and I’ve started a sleeve – woot! The end is in sight!
Of course you know that just about the time it’s finished Indian Summer will hit New England. Honestly, though, I’m okay with that!
