Upstate New York

Thursday, September 24th, 2009

I had the pleasure of being tour guide to friends who were visiting from Australia this weekend. I was anxious as they are from Sydney and wanted them to see Syracuse at its best. The tour included the University, the city and Columbus Circle, Skaneateles, Cazenovia, Deruyter Lake, and of course Jamesville. They found everything beautiful especially as Autumn has arrived. Gorgeous colors and textures. Let the Autumn inspire you. Instead of the cool blues and greens of summer, why not the warm golds, russets, and deep greens of the pines. Enjoy this wonderful weather and take in the scenery. Come in and be inspired.

School is back!!!!!

Wednesday, September 9th, 2009

I always have mixed feelings at the start of the school year. I love having Mary home over the summer, but she always likes to get back to all her friends. The routine will begin and then we will be looking forward to leaves turning, Halloween, Thanksgiving and of course the holiday season in December. In Australia, Halloween was only observed by a few and it was the signal that the school year was coming to a close as the school year starts in February and ends in early December. But as the weather cools down here in New York, many knitters resurface and the knitting “season” begins in earnest.
I wish everyone going back to school a happy and productive year. And to all of you who have taken a break this summer, welcome back.

To My Friends In Australia

Helen, Helen, Jenny, Louise, Sharon, Paula, Geraldine, Karen, Dee, Pamela, Deryn, Annette, Sue, Antonia, Rowena, Judith, Rina, Peta, Yve, and my first friend Lissa.

Many of you are making trips to the US and I am waiting patiently for the rest of you. September is here and the leaves will be turning soon.
Yarn Cupboard is bulging with the new autumn yarns and I am working on numerous projects. So remember, as Elizabeth Zimmerman said,
“Really, all you need to become a good knitter are wool, hands, and slightly below-average intelligence. Of course, superior intelligence, such as yours and mine, is an advantage.
