you can have summer....

but I call dibs on Fall and Winter....
there is something about living in a log cabin that makes me long for cold days with a fire burning and a pot of soup on the stove...
...if only these grapes weren't twelve feet off the ground... oh! the things I could make...
...so instead I stick to the knitting I started for my school girl. The shawl can be pattern can be found here. It left the house this morning and is on it's way to live at school where it will be hung in her cubby....good-bye shawl!
and what about the little bit of pink wool left over... some things never change.... I'm still trying to work up the courage and skill to take on making the likes of this blanket....someday!

Look at those leaves turning...beautiful. The shawl is so pretty...you can do that ripple afghan...I know you can. My neighbor is working on it right now...she followed her tutorial, practiced a bit and now she's zipping right along.

OMG! I had a ripple blanket when I was little. But it alternated green and white. I think I may even have the remains of it around here somewhere. Not much of it left now days. I love the multi-colored one in the link.

LOVE the house shot. I agree a log cabin, falling leaves and a pot of soup would be pure heaven.

Your house looks so beautiful with the leaves changing colors! You're a little ahead of us I think. And the shawl is beautiful! I'm sure it will be well loved! :0)

Your house is amazing!
I am sure your little school girl will enjoy wrapping up in her pink shawl and feeling the love that is in it. :)

The shawl came out beautifully! Fantastic job on the edging--it is a bugger though isn't it...LOL! I am not sure I would have let it go to school and to the cubby after all that work...LOL!

Beautiful picture of your home!!!
Love your shawl, and the color!!
I know she will love it too!!
I make soup every week, a big pot of it and we eat it as a snack or before a meal. It never takes a whole week to eat it all up.
That is a Monday AM job, making soup.
Hugs Fern

Your home looks so beautiful -- the setting is incredible. No wonder you love the fall - the colours of the leaves are gorgeous.
Lovely shawl -- your daughter must love it!

The photo of your home is just gorgeous. I love the green with the bits of color. We don't get color like that here at all!

Love ripple afghans, my granny's favorite thing to make. Great shawl to send to school for just those cool days when she needs a touch from home.

What a beautiful shawl and such a pretty colour.
I've knitted all my life but crochet does not come easy to me either.
I see from your next post that you already conquered the ripple!
Well done.
