Finally, some of my many knitting projects are on their way to completion. For several months I have done some artistic freeform knitting and crochet scarves which are on sale at the Cambridge Artists Coop, Cambridge, MA. Soon I can post photos of them.
But I did complete Selbhu mittens this week-end. The Frog Tree alpaca is sooo soft. Of course, I can't follow the directions precisely and if you look closely, the two mittens have some slight variations but that is my life! I love Fair Isle or stranded knitting. Soon I will post a pair of fair isle socks which I will never wear or they wear out!
Oh, by the way, I am teaching FreeForm knitting and Crochet at the Sharon Arts Center this fall. It is 5 consecutive Monday nights.
My favorite thing to do in the Fall is to hike the many trails or mountains of New England. The nights are cool, the days are warm, the sky is so blue, it is hard to resist!
Last week I hiked Mt. Sugarloaf in Deerfield, Mass. Look at the views of the Connecticut River!
Last year I climbed Little Monadnock in Fitzwilliam, long after most of the foliage was down. The contrast with the light and dark trees is remarkable.

I flew to Chicago on September 1 to ride with my DD to NYC while she drove the truck with her art for her show opening on September 6.
We could write a book about eating breakfast at 11 PM each night or finding a hotel where the truck would be safe all night. And we always looked for the hotel at 1 am!
The highlight of the week-end was visiting an Art Gallery in Chagrin Falls, OH and eating at the Fish Market. The food was delicious.
I was very happy to see the Lincoln Tunnel on Labor Day! No Gridlock! Hurray!
