I didn't want to admit it for awhile, because I had such a great summer this year. But the school year has started anew, and the cool fall weather is (finally) here.
This summer I was lucky enough to go on two trips. First of all, I went to England, where I got to see Stonehenge. There are some more pictures in my Flickr set.
I also picked up some yarn while I was there, which has so far resulted in two first socks. The second green one is next in my "purse knitting" queue.
David and I also took a road trip to New England and Canada in August. We had never taken a road trip together before, and it was great. We had to hurry home a day early, though, so we could prepare for Hurricane Irene. (We were fine, just lost power for 2 days.)
Sadly, I have not made a set of photos for this trip, but here is a picture of me in Nova Scotia.
As the summer was winding down, I finished a last "summer dress", but I think with some boots and a cardigan it might well last me into fall.
This is Vogue 8728, which is written for woven fabric, but I used a knit instead. This mostly worked out, although the back was way too big and I took two large tucks on either side to fix it. I also cut 5 inches off the length of the skirt to make it come to my knees.
And since I don't want the above photo to be the last one in this post, here's a picture of some pretty handspun yarn I picked up from the New Jersey Sheep & Wool festival.
