green peach green peach green

ALAS! My newest project. A very bright scarf. I bought this yarn about a  year ago and was waiting for the perfect project. I'm not sure if this is the project I had in mind, but I was desperate to use it! I figured the color combo was pretty interesting too. For some reason this scarf remind me of Old Navy. I'm not sure why. I'm hoping to be done with this by the weekend. Now that all my photos are done for my clients, I will have plenty of free time to knit! HURRAH!

For anyone who knows how to knit this is a super simple pattern. Here's how I did it:
Co 24 stitches
Row 1: Knit w/MC
Row 2: Purl
Row 3: Knit with CC
Row 4: Purl
Repeat from Row 1 until desired length.
Mine is a little over a foot long so far.

I think I've been procrastinating for so long to use this yarn because it's just so darn pretty! I wish I could make a pair of mittens to go along with my scarf but I don't think I will have enough left! :sigh: Knitting crisis. Either way, mittens will be my next project. Or glittens? I've yet to try either, so it should be interesting!
I'm so glad the cold weather is rolling in. Perfect time to cozy up and knit. It has been raining for the past 3 or 4 days, and will be raining all day tomorrow. Unfortunately because I had so much work to do, knitting had to become a night time sport. While I sat in front of the tv half asleep. But not tomorrow!!! Tomorrow I will be knitting!

Something to start out with!

I wanted to post about a new knitting project I have going on, but I haven't taken any picture of it yet, and it's getting pretty late. So here's a post about an adventure I had on Sunday with my beautiful family! APPLE PICKING! I LOVE the fall! My favorite time of the year!
I love when the trees start to turn!

Fresh picked peppers!...wait...those aren't apples!
AH! There we go!!!
Can you handle it? Honestly now. My nephew is an aspiring GQ model. Can you tell?

After about 5lbs of apples, I cam home and made a WONDERFUL apple crisp! Pictures to be uploaded soon. But now, I have to go eat that wonderful apple crisp!
