Summer's wonderful extension ended Sunday afternoon, as wind and clouds took over the sky. My last two weekends were full of sun, so much so I ended up with fever blisters on my lips. This is not a complaint, as they were dealt with forthwith (I have my ways), and only a tiny spot marred my face. With a face like mine, it's no biggy, heh. There is a slight change in the leaves on the valley floor, as this weeks weather, finally, marks a change to fall.
Friday afternoon I had this years last pedicure with color. The comment by the technician that I must be a gardener made me laugh right out loud. (Oh my, the dirt that must have been crusted in the crevasses of my toenails!) I promised the next time they would be easier to clean. The happy orange on my toes made the weekend all the better, but the next time they will be sans polish, as my toes do not like the cold one little bit.
The past week was so crazy busy I just couldn't get to my needles as often as I like, but I did finish Suzy's Leafy Mitts. They were quick, fun, and easy to knit. Suzy loves them almost as much as I do. The pattern may work beautiful in any Aran weight yarn, but Ruth's specially dyed Essential Merino is best way to go. I love the way the color looks against the ivy in Suzy's garden.
