Hi Knitters,
We are enjoying a lazy Sunday with no one having to rush off here and there. TC was up to her gathering self. She presented me with a bowl filled with acorns this afternoon. She made the rounds on our block and collected as many whole acorns as she could find. Her favorites are the hairy-capped acorn brand and the double or triple attached sort and when the acorns remain on the branch. She found some of each of these.
TC has also been busy at work on her mosaic tree stump. The theme has become all of the things TC likes. She has enjoyed digging through all the little treasures that I have saved up over the years. It is a bunch of silly stuff for sure.

I have some fun links to share today. Enjoy.
Macaroni Love Story by Heather Ross (click on the squares to see them all).
The Falling Stitches site reviews what's hot on Ravelry. It's fun to look at what's new.
Sweet Georgia, a new sweater out of sock yarn by Jane Richmond.
I want a couch full of these sweet pillows.
I love this sea and beach inspired quilt by Amanda Soule.
I love this video tutorial on simple sewn snack bags. Super slick and easy.
Knitted ice cream? Look right here.
The fall Twist Collective is beyond wonderful. Be sure to check it out.

That's it for today. I hope you are all well.
best, susie

I just discovered the exercisebeforeknitting blog last week, by mistake really. I was searching around on ravelry for fellow Columbus, OH knitters & came across Elinor's page. She has some beautiful designs!

Thanks for all the great links!

I was so inspired by all that hat knitting at your place so much that I ordered Itty Bitty Hats and Custom Knits! The knitting bug has bit me again!

I always love reading about what TC is up to. She reminds me so much of my daughter at that age.

Btw, I have a lovely award for you Susan, come see my blog.
