I would rather sit on a pumpkin, and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion. ~ Henry David Thoreau
Autumn is one of my favorite seasons. I love watching the fall foliage colors emerge on trees. There are a few trees on my morning run route that are simply stunning. I almost forget I’m working out when I see them in the moonlight (yes, it’s still dark when I run).
The trees inspired my soup choice this week. I tried pumpkin soup from Quick and Easy Low Carb. This was my first time making pumpkin soup. The British Hubby was a little skeptical. I introduced him to pumpkin pie so he was unsure how this dessert staple would make a good soup. I’m happy to report we both think it’s fantastic! I think this is my new favorite fall soup. The pepitas provide a nice crunch. This recipe is going into immediate soup rotation.
I know it seems like I hardly have time to knit any more between my day job, weaving classes, hiking and Ulysses. I’ve found small snippets to squeeze in a few rows here and there. I started six pairs of socks during July and August. I still think I’m on track to finish them all yet this year. (I know you’re doubting this statement, but I’m sticking to it.)
- Shark Bait II: I’m working on the foot. About every other day, I measure it to see if it’s long enough to start the toe. It’s not yet.
- Junkie U: This was an impulse cast on that I’m glad I started. These are so bright and cheerful. I’m going to love wearing them on those gloomy rainy days. I’m on the leg of sock two.
- TDS 5.2.17: This is sock is interesting. I made few modifications to the pattern that I’m not sure were for the best, but in for a penny in for a pound. I’m on the toe of sock one.
- Watermelon: These are my socializing-traveling-don’t need to look at a pattern socks. I’m not making steady progress on them yet.
The month is half over. I only have one finished wip so far this month. Just two weeks to finish two more.
