This is what happens when it is very wet in the spring and you get a bad killing frost early in September:
Your pumpkin harvest looks like this. Six measly little pumpkins. Oh well, there is always next year.
Speaking of rain, we’ve actually had a couple of days without rain. Colin and Dad are trying the soybeans here at the house. Must be going well, I can hear they are still at it. Spoke too soon, Colin just came in and a large bearing is busted. They are done until that gets fixed.
Today was Isobel’s birthday, miss you!

Pretty, Happy, Funny Real this week is Ella’s first week at skating.
She’s working on stopping here.
She’s not really sad in this picture. The coach drew lines on the ice for them to follow while working on various skills. Ella had so much fun. Since she’s been skating since she was 2, they moved her up to the second level group. Ella can’t wait for next week.

Yarn Along this week and no Christmas presents to share. I’ve been working on Ella’s afghan this week. Made a lot more progress on it than I thought.
I think 5 more rows and it should be long enough. Elizabeth, this would be a great pattern for you to try next. Looks really impressive but very easy and can be done in any size yarn.

I don’t know if it’s the over cast skies and rain, but MAN is Ella in one heck of a grouchy mood! School was like pulling hens teeth -including math. She usually ASKS to do math. Sure hope the protein kicks in soon, Brown Owl won’t want to deal with cranky Ella.
Finished up all the little Advent decorations. I made a couple changes and I need some beads to finish them but all the fiddly knitting is done. There is a Christmas light bulb, gingerbread man, Christmas cracker, a heart, angel, basket, Santa hat, bells, star, ornament, wreath, Christmas pudding, and icicle.
The little snowflake is a swap I made for the Advent garland, much nicer than the one in the original pattern. Also a couple ‘full’ size snowflakes, the top one is here and the other one is this one. They need to be starched still.
I’ve been working on Ella’s sweater too. It always amazes me how fast raglan sweaters knit up. This isn’t a good representation of the yarn colour. Maybe I’ll try outside next week (if it’s not raining).
