New Stuff, Future Stuff

The OMG I'M DONE-ness of the major secret gigantimous project left a quiet hole in my autumn and that has been more than okay.

I've been bopping along with the blue round-type cape shawl and the eight pattern repeats of the body before edging are finished:

Poor thing can't look any more squooshed, can it.  Hopefully I can start doing the edging soon and slowly liberate it, stitch by stitch, from the circular cable.  That plan may have a hitch in it, though, becauuuuuse
I cast on a new thing!

It's a test knit!  It's wine-colored!  It has beads!
I wish I could will it into being immediately.

This new pretty thing is the very beginning of a year-long experiment -- an adventure, if you will -- that I'm attempting with my good friend Honeyspoon.  You'll hear more about it soon...
for now, suffice it to say, there will be knits.   :)

I can has Thanxgivin?

The country has been full of upheaval, so I'm extra relieved to try to take a day to be grateful for the good things we have.

I'm thankful for... festive bunting!

Increasing and Decreasing Bunting [Rav] by Michelle Moyle; knit and crocheted using 180 yards of miscellaneous stash yarn!

The sweet potato casserole is in the works, so I'm going to finish that up and go eat... 
blessings to you and yours today!
