Time Flies When You're..........

Where the heck did the last month go? At last check-in we were celebrating Labor Day.......... now it's Columbus Day; the grandkids have the school routine down-pat; I've switched to my fall wardrobe; winterized the car; raked a few leaves; and my gift-knitting is in full swing. We won't even discuss all the yarn clearance sales I've hit between Alexandria & Roanoke (lol).

I'm still working the Fern Lace Wrap and fully intend to be finished and sporting it on Election night. Here's the latest progress pic:

My youngest daughter fell in love with the Slouchy Beret I made for the older one so naturally I had to whip one up for her. She's so good at the guilt-thing, she even managed to get a matching scarf.

The Leaf Lace Scarf is coming along nicely but I haven't managed to take a new picture. I've been training for my 6th Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in 2 weeks in Charlotte, NC. I continue to walk in honor or memory of some fantastic women. Every year my list grows but I keep the faith that we will find a cure. Y'all pray for me by way of good weather and no blisters!

I promise not to stay away so long........happy knitting!

My leaf lace is also coming along, but you have passed me. I have been working on other projects. That Beret is beautiful. Good Luck on your walk, we will be thinking about you.:D

That hat is gorgeous..gotta a little of the rasta working there!
Good luck in the walk..I am gearing up for my first walk in May. It will be the crop walk in a neighboring town. I think it's only a couple of miles but it's more than I've done.

ah yes, it never worked on my mom?
