I finished my Clapotis yesterday! I really wanted to get it done for my anniversary, which was yesterday. I finished it at 3 and we went out at 5:30. I really love how it turned out and this yarn was just such a delight!

Now for the Specs.

Yarn: Plymouth Galway Highland Heathers, 4 skeins
Needles: Addi Turbo's US size 8.
Pattern: Clapotis by Kate Gilbert.

Next up...sweaters for the kids, a doll, an elephant, a few hats, some socks, pants...the list never ends.

I really haven't done any other knitting than this lately. I have worked non-stop on this project and I love it.

Here are some pictures though of things we've been doing. I just call it living.

We call him Super Roo!

I love fall. I love the cooler weather (note, I did not say cold, I do not enjoy the cold, cool though, that is nice) that follows the always so hot summers. I love watching the leaves change color. I love the sound of the leaves as they crunch under my feet. Here are some photos I took of fall here in Logan. The colors are not as brilliant as they have been in past years. Apparently this is because it was so hot and so dry this summer. and dry in the desert? Surely you jest.

Have you also noticed how S has been dressing up? He wears many different costumes daily. He ranges from Peter Pan, to a Cheerleader (complete in Nebraska Cornhuskers Garb...much to his Father's dismay!), a Cowboy, Superman, Roo, Super Roo, or just Super S. He is so funny, and I love to watch him dress up and become these characters. It really is so much fun for me because I remember loving dressing up when I was little. I just need to make sure he has lots of warm costumes for this cold city we live in!

You are lucky. A few blocks south of you and my trees are still half green. They haven't reached the brilliant orange that you have yet. And we have lost half of the leaves already too. The Clapotis looks great!

I loved my dress up boxes - I carried it with me to college and finally said goodbye as I left on my mission. My sister still has it in her basement and I do pull out the pink skirts and blue wigs of my past. My mom put them in trunks so they felt so old. My favorite thing when I was little was an old nightie... how sassy! I've just started one for Cohen. right now he can be Charlie Brown, Diego or Super Why (have you watched this on PBS yet? C loves it!). I need to get on the ball. AND... there is nothing I love more than seeing a little kid dressed up at the grocery store in the middle of the summer. I LOVE IT!!!!
