Pumpkins

I like the fall. The leaves are so pretty and the temperatures are so mild.

We went to pick out a pumpkin for my son today. The pumpkin quest was for fun. The pumpkin is not for carving or associations with anything other than fall, harvest, and the beauty of things God made. We even took a hay ride which is something I've never aspired to do.

I don't know what we'll do with the pumpkin but my little man enjoyed picking one.



I corrected semi-new errors in my Klaralund sleeve.


Then somewhere I dropped a stitch. Guess that's what I get for trying to knit without looking.

I'll be correcting that tonight.

At least I'm getting in my 15 minutes.

I found there are a few programs for homeless people here. I really thought t here would be more but maybe I haven't done enough research. Looks like a few organizations and a few churches. I guess that's something.

What a cutie your son is picking pumpkins! Very adorable!
As for klara- at least you caught the purls now and not 10 inches down the sleeve!

Hi Kimberly,

Don't feel bad about the dropped stitch. It happened to me while I was working on the front. It was a good thing I counted the stitches right before BO because I wouldn't have known it otherwise (it was the first stitch in the row hidden from view 3 inches below). And like you said, it happened while I was watching TV and figured I could knit without looking. I'll be posting some photos today so check back to view. I can't wait to see your Klaralund as well.

Love the look of your Klaralund sleeve as it progresses! Even with the purled stitch! The pumpkin patch picture of your son is adorable! I love going to the farm stand and orchards this time of year! Good luck finding all the info for the homeless programs. There has got to be a better way to find some of the local ones beside just word of mouth like around me.... Keep up the good work!

Thanks for the comments about my sleeve and my son. Both are doing pretty well right now. ;)

Hopefully I can continue my sleeve and make some real progress.

Thanks again for the encouragement!

Great pic of your little cutie! What did you wind up doing with the pumpkin? One year we did a sort of free~form painting but this year they were happy to leave them au natural :o)
Isn't it funny that when we can't seem to find the time to knit is when we need to knit the most? *sigh* Hang in there, you'll work it out to find some time!
