Finally sat down to make a post. I've been busy trying to get some knitting done before the cold weather hits. Well, it hit today. Tonight we may have a few flurries and in the low 30*s but it's about time. I was soooo tired of the hot weather that the cold is a relief. Been having the slow cookers going because I've been craving stews and soups now that it's getting fall-like.

 Here is the "chick'n" noodle soup that I made using Beyond Meat. It's a great product, vegan and gluten-free, and so versatile. I just love it.
 Have finished a few knitting projects.
A sweater for myself. The shawl is for mom. She really wanted it and seems to be really happy with it. I'm trying to design a sweater using the same mitering.
Mom is modeling the sweater and she's much smaller than me so it doesn't fit well on her.

This pattern is from Lion Brand, and it's free. Very easy and addictive. I made this one larger than the pattern because she wanted it nice and long.
Right now I'm knitting on this. It's the Central Park hoodie and I'm trying to knit it for the 30 day sweater challenge ( and I have the sleeves to go and then seaming and the hood. It's rather boring (for me) and I'll be glad to have it finished and off the needles.
Okay. This is just a short post because I've got a lot of things going on right now, including being in a live chat right now. I'll write soon, I promise. Yes, yes, I know. But I will.
