It's truly Fall, it's October


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.


All donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated. The Power of One is awesome, and when we work together The Power of One becomes The Power of Many.


  1. In total agreement Sandy. Fall used to be my favorite time of the year, but it really brings too many thoughts of what is ahead. Minnesota does not give us a break in the winter months. It is a hard time of the year. Like you my arthritis drives me crazy in the winter.Need to add to my prayers for the folks who tough it out outside. GOD bless them all.

  2. Very nice fall pictures. Trees are getting some color in them here in MI. Got a scarf done. Hope to get some more done soon.

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
