Where does time go? Don't know about you all; but for me it seems time goes faster the older I get. Today is October. We've had frost and cool temperatures now off and on for a month. Leaves are changing colors, flowers are gone...a time of year that makes me sigh. I always hate to see summer come to an end. It means we're soon to need hats, mittens, scarves and ...as much as I truly dislike winter.......I've got a roof over my head. I even get to take a vacation to warmer climates. Not so for our homeless folks.
My arthritis is more bothersome in winter, so I know they too must be hurting living out in the elements, or getting a night here and there in a shelter. Even those in temporary housing often don't have adequate heat. So please, if you're one who takes the summer off from knitting and crocheting...do gear up.
October is Mitten Month. Mittens are something we never get enough of. For many of us, it's not the easiest of things to make...not a favorite. I understand the sentiment; but please ...if you're able think mittens, knit mittens, crochet mittens, mitten patterns. Would love to add some mitten patterns to the mitten tab if you've got one that's quick, easy and WARM.
Thought you might enjoy some leaf play, tis the season; but for me......I just keep thinking about the less nice part of fall and what I know will soon follow.
OCTOBER IS MITTEN MONTH
