Where did you get that hat?

I always find that this time of year is tinged with more than a hint of sadness.  The long, warm days of summer have slowly given way to the longer, cooler nights of autumn.  Leaves have gone from greens to golden browns, russets and yellows.  Winter is on its way which means its going to get colder.   In a way this is good news because I have finished the hat I was knitting.

Just in time to by the sound of it. According to the weather forecast for this week, we have arctic winds heading our way.  That means the possibility of snow. 

Great.  My least favourite season is coming early this year.  I hope that means that summer will be early next year.

Anyway, Youngest will be super toasty if it does snow.  She's really taken to this hat and scarf set.  Umm... if I want to be super toasty, I guess I'd better start knitting another hat!

It seems to have been ages since I last did some cross stitch.  My main problem at the moment is lack of light.  We have energy saving light bulbs which I find are just not bright enough to stitch by.  I can't see the difference in the colours so have to wait for time at the weekends so I can stitch in daylight.  Needless to say what with Christmas just round the corner, there isn't much daylight time left at weekends at the minute! 

Bye for now

Remembrance Sunday 2010

“They shall grow not old as we that are left grow old:
 Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
 At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.” 

Bye for now
