Crisp October Days

October is crisp days and cool nights, a time to curl up around the dancing flames and sink into a good book. ~John Sinor (1930–1996), in San Diego Union-Tribune

It’s the first weekend of October. Time to start decorating for Halloween. Last month, I started sewing a few new projects. Introducing, my Halloween pillow cases and kitchen tea towel. They bring a ghoulish air to our bedroom and kitchen.


Update on other wips:

  • Portland Bias Scarf: Skein three has 16.20 grams left.
  • Frank in Pairs: Now there are two stripes of Pairs. Woot woot! See the photo below.
  • Dewberry Dancer: Thirty two of thirty six rows in section one are complete. With a little luck, I’ll start section two this week.


The British Hubby and I have started watching The Great British Bake Off. We especially love the history lessons in season one. I decided to make a loaf of Pain de Campagne to go with our Turkey Bolognese.

Ernie loves snuggle time.


Two days into October, I’m putting the finishing touches on a wip.

P.S. I heard rumors October might just have a new section coming on my blog. Stay tuned.
