Autumn in All it's Beauty

I guess you could say it's been awhile since I've blogged.....a blogging hiatus of sorts!  To be honest I needed a break and was working on two UFO's, both of which aren't completed even as I type.  I'm still crocheting the baby blanket for my new grandbaby who is due in March of 2012 and a buttonhole scarf which I'm knitting.  I got that yarn and pattern from  Deramores online store in England.  I won both the yarn and the pattern booklet for a slogan I entered into their contest over the summer.  I was bowled over when I got the email that I won and shortly thereafter I got my winning package in the mail....airmail, that is. :) 

I promise pictures very soon since I do need to finish up both of the above before Christmas and then I'll be free to begin 2 new projects, one of which will be socks using String Theory yarn in a combination of a lovely cocoa brown and a medium pink, what fun!

Since I don't have any pics of fiber content, I leave you with our little snow day on October 28, 2011.  I don't remember ever getting snow that early in our neck of the woods but there you have it......Mother Nature will do as she pleases when she pleases so there are no guarantees when it comes to weather.  My one hope is that the upcoming winter will be a very cold one, which will be right up my alley.  Cheers to all of you!
