Baby, it's NOT cold outside!

In fact, it's hot. Africa hot (Biloxi Blues anyone?). 87 is our high today. I am sick of wearing shorts & t shirts. I want to put my sandals away. I am a Vermont girl who loves, no LOVES fall. I look forward to cool mornings w/ that crisp feeling in the air. I love nothing more to go walking & scuffle thru the fallen leaves. This whole 90 degree weather in October? Not for me. So, Mother Nature, feel free to send some 60's & 70's this way. As a high temp, I mean!

I was shopping for some fall clothes for the Wee One this week & found the cutest red shrug at Carter's. It's for the holidays w/ just the smallest hint of metallic thread running thru the yarn. Like any good knitter, I thought "hmmm, I could make this" so I didn't buy it. Today I went looking for the yarn---found it at Michael's where I discovered it's 4.99$ a 50g ball. Not bad right. It'll take me 5 balls to make the shrug which is on sale for 15$. Do I buy a ball a week w/ the coupon from the Sunday paper or do I just buy the premade shrug. It is quite cute. I could make her another shrug. Gah!
Here's a glimpse of the little bit of foliage we've got right now. Hey, a girl's got to dream, right??

How much is the shrug at Carters? Cost less than the yarn? LOL...

Jealous of your weather, it's COLD here!

Michael's emailed me a coupon for 20% off your entire regular price purchase. I'll print it and bring it to you Monday night.

Bless your heart... I need 4 seasons too. Thankfully, I have all but put away my flip flops and I never wear shorts, but you get the point.
