Hello Autumn!

As the lazy days of summer are now a sweet memory; we are now enjoying the crisp cool days and nights of fall! The glorious color changing of the leaves are a sight to behold and pumpkins are all around.

I spent the end of my summer perusing some of my knitting books/Pinterest and dreaming of cooler days that are now upon us. In anticipation, I picked up my knitting needles and worked on completing a pattern that has been five years in the making.

I started this wrap one summer after finding it in a Debbie Bliss magazine. I was so excited and thought surely it would be done by the end of that summer. However, I put it down and worked on other things. The next summer rolled around and I picked it up again. This cycle continued for the next 4 years till finally I decided this summer was it. I had to finish this thing. And so, with a drumroll please, I am happy to announce I am done, complete, c’est fini, finito!

What a wonderful feeling! I have accomplished my goal and will wear this wrap now even though it is made in a baby blue color. I will figure out how to add it to my fall wardrobe.

Do you have projects that you have not completed? “WIP” (works in progress) that you look at and sigh? I challenge you to go and get them done.

Now let me go find that cable knit scarf I started last fall…

“Happy crafting”
