I actually had to put on socks today! I'm sure only knitters get that excitement about footwear. The hardest thing was deciding which pair.
It's just such a relief to be cool. I have my steaming cuppa (Coconut Mango Wuyi Oolong from Stash Tea), my long pajama bottoms and got out my shawl to throw around my shoulders. I was glad to have that this morning I'll tell you.
Made some soup the other day (artichoke, leek and white bean from "The 4 Ingredient Vegan)..and a wonderful grilled "cheese" sandwich with tomato,onion and Daiya cheese. The BEST! I must say that it was the best fall lunch that I've had in some time. I definately will make it again. I'd forgotten how much I like grilled cheese sandwiches. Happy tummy. Went up to Yarns and Fabrications this morning because they are closing at the end of the month. All yarn was 60% off and it would have been rude not to go and grab some more.

The majority of the pile is Cascade 220, which is destined for cabled socks from "The Big Book of Socks". The Wisdom Poems will be a pair of fingerless gloves .
I'm not sure what this wants to be but all I know is it wanted to come home with me. It's so soft I just keep "petting" it.
I made a pair of flip-top fingerless gloves/mittens with my last Poems so maybe I'll make another pair. I like to have loads of fingerless mitts around so I can grab a pair practically in any room. My fingers and toes get cold so they are nice. And really work well. I also like cowls so maybe I'll make one of those.
Well, off for some stealth knitting. Enjoy your evening and see you all soon.
