Turning The Page On September

Happy October and welcome to my first monthly recap! I thought it would be fun to look back each month at some highlights, both book-related and personal. Here goes!


Books Read:
This might be the first month in a decade that I have only read one book in an entire month! As you can see here in my post about my disastrous summer of reading, I started several other books but didn't finish them. (image from Goodreads)

Book I'm Most Excited to Read in October:
There are lots of books coming out in October that I'm dying to read. But the finale of Veronica Roth's dystopian Divergent series is the one I really can't wait to get my hands on. (image from Goodreads)

Knitting Projects Completed:

1. The Summer of... Sweet Corn and Mountain Air MKAL Shawl
2. Jack Frost Cowl
3. Cabbage Patch Doll Baby Hat
4. My knitted Christmas wreath! I'll have more pictures and instructions when I finish it up (i.e. pop a huge bow on the top).
What's on the Knitting Agenda for October:
*Gateway to Fall MKAL (shawl)
*Rabbit Hole Knits MKAL (stuffed animal)
*Splitstone vest (I'm about 1/3 of the way done with my first vest!)
*A pair of boot toppers

New Recipes Tried and Liked:
Most-Listened-To Song on Spotify:
New Blogs Discovered:
The Perpetual Page-Turner

Favorite Memory:

It's a tie... the top right picture is the morning our new toy was delivered, a '67 Camaro! The other three pictures are from the Wool Gathering fiber festival we went to at Young's Jersey Dairy in Yellow Springs, Ohio. I got some lovely yarn and fun handcrafted buttons, and it was so fun to see (and feel) so many different breeds of sheep -- plus alpacas!

Most Looking Forward to in October:
Oh, where to start? October is my favorite month -- fall, pumpkins, my birthday, Halloween, the beginnings of Christmas shopping... But I will say that I'm very excited to order my new camera, so be warned that my posts my be excessively picture-laden the next few weeks!
