November, 2017

The Weather has been so mild and lovely until a few days ago.  We have had some icy rain and some snow.  I'm sure it will only last a few days and then the sun will shine again.  In the meantime, it is the perfect knitting and stitching weather!  After such a hot summer, it's nice to get back into the groove of cool weather knitting.
