Well, school is moving along. I seem to be keeping my head above water so far. Though to be honest, I don't think that there is really anything else out there but school work and house work.

Now, I posted before about Mockingbird Moon yarn shop, I would like to elaborate a bit about this shop. This shop is not only cute and friendly, but it has things other than yarn. There are stamps and some quilts stuff and the cutest little dog. I have to say a better behaved Yorkie I have never met. He was friendly and quiet. The wonderful ladies that run this shop also didn't mind that I had my very busy 6 year old son with me. He was allowed to play with the dog and not once was I made to feel bad for having a child in their shop. I wish I could say that about all the yarn shops that I go to...Sadly...I can't. If you happen to be in the Bentonville area you should go an see these wonderful ladies. Goodness knows that there are not enough yarn shops in this area.

I have been knitting. I knit a hat for my daughter S.

I have posted this on my Ravelry. It is the Naked Star Hat pattern and I enjoyed knitting it. After some of the more complicated knits it was a really nice breather.

I also completed Josiah's Star. This was a really fun project. It is modular knit so there is no sewing and when you are done, you are done!!

I'm kind of stumped as what I am going to knit next. I have been "stash shopping" this year and so far I have completed 7 or 8 projects...not too bad! I will be working on Off the Deep End and possibly my Swirl Shawl. I also have a fair isle cardigan that I may try and finish so I have a second sweater for the winter...who knows.

I hope to get Coming Home blocked this week. I will post pictures of the process and the finished object.

Charity...I don't get many responses in my comments but...I have a friend L that knits for the kids in the area and in Joplin. She is currently needing stocking caps and has a really basic easy pattern that she has given me. It can be knit either in the round or flat and then sewn up so it would be a good pattern for the beginner or the advanced knitter just needing to use up some leftovers.  If you will drop me a comment I will send you the pattern. Your email address with not be shared with anyone or used in any way. I just don't know how to add a link to the pattern right now but I will work on it.

Keep knitting, the weather here is definitely taken a fall turn and it makes it nice to knit something warm.

Gotta tend the dragons...TTFN
