The other day I started a new project.  It was progressing nicely.  I had just finished the ribbed border and was about to start the good part - the part where the stitches twist and turn and do all sorts of acrobatics.  And then all work came to a screeching halt.

I had to take time for some planning.

There are new kits in the works, and that means choosing colors.  I worked my way through that process, selecting colors and having way too much fun.  After everything was squared away, I was anxiously looking forward to picking up my needles.  Time to put those stitches through a gymnastics drill.

But it was not meant to be.  I encountered a knitting emergency.  One that had to be dealt with immediately.

I need a knitted something for a little one, and I need it right now. Those stitches doing twists and turns and somersaults?  They will have to wait for another day.  In the meantime I have a sweet little something to keep me occupied.  And since there is a pressing deadline for this sweet little something, I'm sure I'll be working on my other project in no time at all.

While the fruits at the farmers' market switch from berries to apples, I gathered a few peaches and blueberries to make a delicious sauce. The mixture of yellow-orange and blue cooks up into a beautiful pinkish red - my color inspiration for the week.

The last of the season.

The yarn is a 100% superwash merino that I use for the Sweet Bunting Cardigan kit. Right now I don't offer it other than in the kits. Colors are Clematis and Baltic Blue.
