I think the freezing rain has finally claimed victory over the roses…
Holes in the heels of my stash socks and a darner I am not.
So I bought these..
..and now have this. No holes (that you can see) and no darning. Woo hoo, I am ready for winter!
How many lace patterns have been inspired by spiderwebs?
It has been foggy with mist here all night and it seems our lace knitters found Bob the Builder’s truck an enticing spot.
The webs are so fragile appearing that it seems the mist droplets would weigh them down and pull them apart.
Ah Nature, we can only imitate you and dream of capturing a little of your beauty.
We are under a winter storm watch, temperature of 33 degrees with freezing rain falling all night.
My tough Texas roses don’t care, they are taking it in stride, soaking it up.
They think it is a nice change from 103 degrees this past summer! So do I, as you can tell, since I am silly enough to stand in the freezing rain taking pictures. :-)
We had an early freeze last week and the trees responded by giving us some colors other than green and brown. We don’t always see a nice color change here.
The roses didn’t seem to mind a cold night either.
Instead of finishing my UFOs as I promised myself, I frogged an almost completed crochet tablecloth and knitted a Pi tablecloth (pattern is for a shawl by Wendy Johnson of wendyknits.net).
It went pretty quickly but I was in the twilight zone of bind off land with 1,152 stitches on the needles when the time came.
I will be blocking this week (it will have lots of lovely scallops around the edge) and have it on the table before Thanksgiving.
