It's almost time for kids to go back to school, and to get ready for winter. I've been knitting like crazy to get some things done for the church festival. I've knitted two sets of mittens and one cap. I think I'll add a knitted cupcake to the bunch. Photos will be forthcoming as soon as I can find my card-reader.

I spent last Saturday at Stitches Midwest. A busload of knitters from the area went down and spent the day browsing and buying. I went away just in awe of the amount of yarn, knitting needles, and extras that were available to buy. My knitting stash was added to with a ball of laceweight yarn in beautiful shades of purples and oranges:
Sock yarn in a vibrant hue of hot pink and yellow jumped into my bag also.

My Sister and Brother-In-Law were over today. They were sent home with two baskets of apples, one bucket of cucumbers and potatoes. There's a joke that goes around small towns that the only time that people lock their car doors is during Zucchini season. A locked car means that no one can put zucchini in your car while you're not looking!
