I am almost ready to bind off the top and add the thumb to my first Moira Mitt! Teal has asked for them, but I was really knitting them for myself! They may become a shared item, even though I’m sure they would look cuter on her.
As a recommendation from my husband’s sister-in-law, I just finished reading Edenbrooke and Blackmoore, both by Julianne Donaldson (who happens to be a local author.) I have never been a romance reader, but these sweet little romances were enjoyable and so quick to read. I haven’t stayed up late reading for years, but I finished Blackmoore at 1am, knowing I would regret it when I had to get up this morning.
Did you notice the lovely gourd in the first photo? Our homeschool coop met at a pumpkin farm this morning, and not only was I feeling rushed (because I stayed up too late reading, maybe?) but I drove my rental car (the minivan is in the shop because someone rear-ended me) right into a gushy, smooshy pile of mud and couldn’t get it out! We missed the hay ride with our friends while I used a child’s toy shovel that was missing half of the blade (what farm doesn’t have a REAL shovel?!) to dig my tires out. The farmer was kind enough to come push me out of the mud when the hay ride was over, so I was very grateful for that.
Joining Ginny today.
