The End Of Summer

Today is Labor Day in the USA. It traditionally marks the end of summer. We are getting a few extra days in our town. School doesn’t officially start until 9/16 though there is an orientation before then. With how odd this year has been I don’t feel sad that summer is ending. Our days are pretty much the same no matter what the date is on the calendar.

I have started the second skein of yarn on the baby blanket. Based on how much I’ve gotten done so far I should need just 3 more skeins. I’m very pleased with how it is coming along.

Enjoy your day. Mine will include knitting.

    Summer seems to have come to an abrupt end here with temperatures dropping to around 57 degrees. I didn’t expect to be wearing sweaters again so soon! Tempted to put the heating on. I think this year has been so weird that we just need to do whatever we can to feel better and for me that means lots of knitting, seeing friends and family in a safe way when I can and looking forward to better things to come. Keep safe and carry on knitting!

    Wow! You are making really quick progress on that blanket! I think that the gray is a great color for a baby blanket.

    Let’s hope for a joyous fall and holiday season- what ever you choose to celebrate- and some freedom from the “overhanging” __________ fill in the blank. Knitting will surely help. Currently working on the first panel of Nora G’s cabled counterpane for my daughter- including learning to look for errata pages BEFORE I start! and to have some trust in my sense of “this just doesn’t look quite right” in the future. Alas, all printing does not go to press without a few missing dashes.

    I’ve used that yarn for projects before and I agree about color work, it puckers. The baby blanket is lovely and Gray is all the rage for babies right now, boy or girl. We had lobster in honor of summers end last night and I’m so glad it’s over. Living at a country club we are packed with visitors from god knows where. I mask walking the dogs for fear of aerosols as nobody else here does! I’ll be glad when I can walk outside without fear of death and destruction.

    Knitting, a little cooking, reading, running a quick errand with my mom so far. Hopefully more knitting before long. Hope you’re having an awesome day! 🙂

    Yay for knitting. I actually am doing some right now. Baby Sweater #2 of 3 is on the needles. #1 just needs buttons sew on. The simplest of all parts of the project and I procrastinate with it! I will likely sew them on as I am going to the shower. Hey, it’s happened before! LOL

    Wow, that is one of the latest, starting school districts I’ve learned about. I thought we were late with the last Wednesday of August.
