Fall is Knitting Time

Dear readers, it's been almost two months since the last time I posted! In that time, I've been a busy little bee. I've been to Vermont twice - once to deposit Fiona at school, and once to visit over parents' weekend. I've been working. I've been cooking. I've been knitting.

I've also been trying to work on a few graphics projects and pay attention to my family and friends while doing this. See me? That was the day I learned a) not to wear white in photos and b) not to let the skinny broads push me into the middle ever again. But it's okay, my hair was really straight that day.

The project shown here is my version of Dark Victory. It's one fat luscious piece of knitting, so warm I nearly passed out trying it on here in La Jolla. You can see how happy Fiona looks in it, back in August. I think it was about 80 degrees that day, and that sweater was the knitted equivalent of locking yourself in the trunk of your car in the parking lot of Costco (I'm not sure how that would happen, now that I think about it. But I ask you, why is the Costco parking lot always hotter than the sun? Global warming: actually caused by 10-gallon vats of mayo.). It lives in Vermont now, more in its woolly natural habitat. I'm hoping it won't come back looking like a potholder with arms.
