Last week we spent a completely perfect day at a Harvest Festival at our local CSA Farm. We wore cozy hats and roamed the pumpkin patch for the perfect jack-o-lantern. There were beautiful puppet shows in a theater filled with bushels of fresh lavender. We drank delicious, locally-brewed beer and ate brats and roasted corn. And we sat in an apple orchard in the warm sun listening to great live music while the kids danced around and did cartwheels.

No kidding. It really was that lovely.

We pick our vegetables up each week from this divine place.

I can't remember a time when I've more completely enjoyed Fall. I love the charming neighborhood festivals and fall carnivals. I love the way my kiddos are delirious over dressing up as bumble bees and super-heroes. I love the cold, thin air and the warm sun. I love my fireplace. I love sweaters and my knee-high argyle socks.

All this seasonal bliss provides most favorable conditions for knitting. Indeed. However, most of my creative energy this past week has been spent on the consuming renovation of this blog. You may be wondering if I'm familiar with the preview button. I just can't seem to stop changing things.

I'm still not done making changes, so don't get too attached.

Progress on Malabrigo Mama is steady. Half of the bottom strip is knitted and I'm adding side vents at the hem.

The bottom section will be knitted in reverse stockinette.

I spent a few happy minutes during naptime this week adding to this:

Cable lace scarf

I've had it on needles for over a year. It will be lovely one day, but it's simply not a priority so I do a row or two every few months.

The big kiddo's hands are chilly during the walk to school in the mornings and I feel an overwhelming impulse to make him little mittens. A knitting friend of mine who knows my tendency for distraction said: "You put that out of your mind and focus on your sweater! He can stick his hands in his pockets."

I shall persevere and his sweet little hands will have to wait for now, but the guilt is mounting.

Today, I leave you with this:

A peaceful corner. The spot I leer at with wanton desire, as I chase naked bottoms through the room.
