I was talking to another mom the other day and we were commenting on how quickly the days are passing. I honestly feel that the months are moving so quickly that they are being construed as a day of the week! Like, See you Next August! Or Happy Hump September! and T.G.I.July!
So I am desperately trying to savor October. It is my favorite month for many reasons.
The leaves are changing and the temperature (typically) signals the uncovering of all the knits that are hidden around my house. I can breathe new life into cardigans that have been collecting dust underneath beds and snuggle up with some blankets that have been neglected.
It's the month for Rhinebeck (which was "born" the same year I was)! Not only am I going this year but I am making a full weekend of it! I rented a house with some really amazing knitters and I plan on strolling casually through the stalls instead of the mad dash it usually feels like when I only have mere hours.
And now here's the obvious, it's my birthday!! Happy Ten Ten! WOO! Last year I was all pregnant and to be honest I can't even remember what I did. (Mommy brain I lothe you). But this year, I get to spend it with my son and wonderful husband. No amount of chocolate cake can take the place of the gifts I get everyday from those two men. (but I mean, I will eat my chocolate cake, anyway!)
It's been an amazing year, one that I won't soon forget as the results of this year has managed to drool all over me everyday since. I'm starting to get my knitting grove back which makes me look forward to the year ahead!
You know the drill, leave a comment and I'll pick a lucky ten-ten'er to share the birthday love! Comments close on Saturday 10-12 (extended love!)
As always, thank you for popping over my blog and enjoying my knit rants – and sticking with me through my baby hiatus! You guys rock.
ETA: Sorry for leaving you guys hanging for a WEEK! Yikes! I did pick a winner though!
ANYA! Congrats to you and I hope you enjoy the yarn! From the looks of it, I may have to do this type of giveaway every 10th of the month! xoxo
