Stealth Knitting

In a previous post, I mentioned that I started something new.

But I can't talk about it! It's a gift. The recipient knows I'm knitting something--but doesn't know the specifics. I'd like it to be a surprise.

I do need to keep careful track of the 24-row pattern repeat.

But the pattern is easy enough that I can read and knit at the same time. (Though this knitting will see me through the play-offs and I'll be working on it when the Yankees play in the World Series.)

Welcome, Autumn!


Apples, pumpkin pies and Concord grapes.
Leaves--gold, red and yellow.
Shorter days, longer nights.
Wool sweaters and handknit socks.
Pot roast, chili, Brussels sprouts.
Rhinebeck-- third weekend in October.
Candy corn and apple cider.

Those are some of my favorite Fall things. What do you like about this season?
