Recovering Well!

I am doing well , 5 days after surgery! Trying to do a bit of knitting, but still tire out easily. Have not even tried to spin yet. Maybe this weekend. Had to show my flowers that my co-workers sent here to the house... so pretty and nice to brighted up the dreary days we have had, even some snow flakes yesterday.. geez.. too early.

Anyway, here is a few projects that I have been working on, and my Adult Surprise Jacket out of odds and ends of handspun yarns that I had.

Football??? Love Football! Are you ready for some

Football?? Monday night party... I love sunday and monday fall tv. It means football! I usually make football tailgate food and we watch 3 to 5 games per week. My favorite teams are: Of course the Packers!! But, I watch and root for the Chargers, and The Cowboys, and the Broncos and sometimes even the others.. I watch the Jets, but only to watch Brett Favre really. I loved when he played here in Green Bay. He was such a good guy. Probably still is.. just hard to see him in the wrong color jersey.
Tonight is Monday night again, so gotta go get chicken wings and a few things before I settle in my chair with my knitting or spinning. Love it!

Nope, not dressing up.. I'm scarey enough.. and living in the country we get no tricker treaters so I put a few pumpkins and some cornstalks out for fall decoration and call it good.

Our fall is really at peak right now. The leaves are so pretty,and our weather is nice. We've had mostly warm days and cooler nights.

October ! Fall! Pumpkins....

So, it's finally October. I love the crisp days and nights. And it is so nice to pull ou the woolens again and wear socks etc.. I finished my second baby surprise jacket and started a third and also an adult surprise jacket for me.

Tomorrow is going to be a dye day in the studio. Need to do some more yarns and rovings before I go to Spin In in West Bend WI.

I got a wonderful suprise package from my "spoiler" from the Falling for ewe swap. There was a neat knitting bag, a pattern for Heritage Yarns "A Bias Towards Lace" It knits up on a bias to make a scarf and there is beads to put on the edges. Also in the bag was scrumptious yarn in the "Peacock Iridescence" it is a 8/2 Tencel. The beads are a beautiful shade of green that look like the color of peacock feathers. This is going to be a fun scarf to knit.

Here are some pictures:
