October 1st

Yesterday began my favorite month of the year. It's a little chilly in the morning & evenings but warm enough during the day for a short-sleeve shirt.

Ree & I went to story time then we came home to play outside & look at the leaves. She also rode her tricycle (motorcycle to her) in the drive way & surprised me by using the pedals. She's grown so much this summer!

During afternoon nap time I started knitting socks with a pattern that I've had in my ravelry queue for 3 years. The yarn has been in my stash for almost 3 years. I've been saving it to make into "Fall socks" for myself. I decided THIS was the Fall!

October is a big month with Feast Days to celebrate; a special little boy's 1st birthday; lots of family get togethers; pumpkins to pick; costumes to make; and so many more fun things. 

Here's hoping I am able to "linger" (my word for 2012 that I had kind of forgotten about) in the moments and soak them all up!


  1. October is one of my favorite months too - especially with little ones! I like your sock yarn. I cast a new one on too. I am hoping to have it finished soon before Halloween!

  2. My hand is up for October being my favorite month too!
    That is very pretty yarn you are using for your fall socks and glad you decided to cast on! Have fun.

  3. I really like that yarn you're using for your socks!
    Enjoy your first days of fall!

  4. One of my goals for this year was to learn how to knit socks. My daughter gave me what she said was an easy pattern and one day soon I will give it a try. I'd better hurry - not much time left. : )
    I like the color yarn you've chosen for your socks.

  5. I couldn't agree with you more ... when October rolls around, my heart sings! Linger is a most excellent word. : )

  6. Count me as an October lover as well :) Love your sock yarn, I am eager to finish a pair of socks this week!! Fingers crossed.
