Well, I remembered to take pictures early in the day for the yarn along, but now it’s late at night and I don’t want to stay up too late writing. My thankful posts have basically ceased, too. Sorry, readers.
I’m currently making a pair of pink socks with a bit of heart lace on the top of the foot. I’m using this pattern. I’m reading Oryx and Crake again because I want to refresh my memory of the storylines in that book and The Year of the Flood before I read MaddAdam.
I got a decent picture of the Milo vest I finished.
It needs a little wash and block. It’s going to be a bit big (I think officially it’s the 9 month size), and I need to decide if I’ll make some little booties or socks with the leftover yarn (since there isn’t enough leftover to make a cowl for me).
Yesterday evening I made some butternut squash soup since I can’t get it at Panera anymore. Apparently they think that “autumn” is over. I found this recipe online. It’s not completely identical, but it’s tasty. I even toasted some pumpkin seeds to go on top. After a brief bit of warm weather (75F!), it has dropped back down, so soup was a lovely lunch.
I need to start thinking more aggressively about warm winter wear. I might have to break down and start wearing a hat.
