Except for this year.
Somehow, I missed fall this year. Is it because of our trip, which took place when fall is at its best here? I feel I didn't see the colours, I did not take advantage of the weekends to have a long walk in a park or in the nearby forest (if there is one advantage of living in 3R, it's the nearby forests!).
|That's pretty much as much colours as I saw - leaves from our neighbours the friars invading our backyard...|
I'm not sure I told you about kind of finishing my Peasy on the way to the airport last month? It's only kind of finished, because I've been able to wear it (I sewed the seams together, because I forgot a buttons hole, and I was not able to find any buttons that I like that are the right size, and I don't think I would ever wear that cardigan open anyway, because of the shape of its collar, but at the same time, I like that it looks like a cardigan, and not a sweater. So I was able to wear it a few times during my trip, but I was asked by an 18 year old if it was not a little too short, and so I have decided that I need to lengthen it. And find buttons. Sight. Eventually.
No knitting at all happened in November, except for a start of a swatch this morning while I was waiting for a blood test at the hospital. It's for Fuse, which I am hoping to start sometimes soon. However, I can't seem to concentrate enough to get it right. The blood test was for my thyroid, so hopefully the concentration level will improve soon (and I should be able to go back to sleep at my normal 10 pm).

The yarn is Berroco Blackstone Tweed in wintry mix.
I kept going to my sewing class (I love it, but I am not very good at that either, I'm afraid).
This is a the beginning of the class several weeks ago, as I was doing my homework at home

Talking about lighting, I think I will reuse this authentic 70's (?) fixture, I see it everywhere (in this colour!) in design blogs. It will look perfect in our walk-in/guests room:
I hope to have something truly completed soon for the next time I write!
