Seriously. Back in August, heat and humidity we had not seen all summer long this year. Today? Snow flurries this morning as I walked the Tank. Welcome to living in the Midwest.
And while the blog has been idle of news, I have not been so unproductive. I studied like a possessed person and passed my boards (massive relief), managed to catch my first cold of the autumn season (damn it), and get a bit of knitting done.
This is for a friend who celebrated a milestone birthday this year:
It went through several styles of scarf before I settled on the cowl in the bee stitch. It's lightweight, soft, smooshy, incredibly warm, and the color is a delight. Good thing it's not blue or I'd have to knit the friend something else!

Next up, I'm continuing work on the Ribbed Bolero Vest in which I may looking like a molting yak, but it'll be cozy when I'm not taken hostage by Fire In The Disco this fall and winter.
