Fall is Here

As you may have noticed on my header Fall is officially here in the Magic Valley. We had a small amount of wet snow last night but it has already melted. Over the weekend we may see some more. The mountains have a coating and are looking like winter, but  I'll have to wait a couple of days to show you a picture of them as they are covered in clouds right now.

Last night was the meeting of our This and That Crafters group. I finally had some finished show and tell. I purchased the yarn and the free pattern came with it for the hat. The yarn is Jeannee, 51% cotton- 49% Acrylic. It's very soft and knits up beautifully.  There are three sizes on the pattern these are the large and the medium.

On another note: Since I removed the letters and numbers you have to enter to have your comment published on the blog I have been getting span email that isn't showing up on the blog posts as far as I can see, but it is becoming annoying in my inbox. If it keeps up I'll have to put the filter back. I don't like them anymore than you do, but I don't like the spam emails. If they go back up please bear with me and know I didn't feel like I had much choice.

I just noticed that I have done 208 posts. Since my area code is 208 and Veterans Day is the 11th I think I will have a spur of the moment Give-Away.
This time it is knitting related and this is what will be given away. I happen to have a second copy of this book so someone can add it to their library if they get lucky.
1. You need to have a blog to enter and post on your blog about my give away
2. If you are a follower on my blog you get an extra entry.
3. Leave me a comment about your favorite Thanksgiving and/or Christmas memory. I look forward to hearing from you all. I will draw a winner and post their name by noon on Wednesday the 14th of November my time. Good Luck.

favorite memory is from several years ago when my son and his family came from Washington and my stepson and his family came from S Utah for Thanksgiving. The weather turned out to be so warm that we all went hiking in the City of Rocks the day after. It was so fun for everyone and great to not be packed into my not-so-big living room.

Love the hats. They are so soft. Thanks for posting where you got the pattern. I just think I have to make some.
