Favorite Things

Our favorite time of year.  Leaves are beginning to turn color...
And we're makin' fried pies from fruit gathered here on the farm...
On the knitting front I made another round of fingerless mitts from the pattern I mentioned last time. Find it here.
This crochet potholder makes me smile. Another free pattern you can try here.
Now, I think I'll go check on our hot cocoa supply for the winter. ;)
Have a great weekend, Y'all!

 I don't know when I've been so glad to see the end of summer. Yes, we're  baskin' in cooler temperatures and downright chilly nights here in the foothills, now....thank the Lord. Isn't this blue black swallow-tail butterfly just darlin'. (I think they ought to mention the blue on it, just sayin'.)
I've been knitting a few pairs of fingerless mitts using this free pattern. Lime green, two-at-a-time on one long circular.
As soon as the green ones were finished I cast on for a purple pair...
and finished them in a few days...what color will she do next,  I hear you ask. Stay tuned to see 'cause I'm still stuck on this pattern. It's easy and quick. ;)
Just exactly how chilly has it been in the foothills? This chili.

Have a wonderfully cool and chilly week, Y'all!
