Coming to you from the home of the World Champion St. Louis Cardinals!

The end of the World Series means the end of baseball---so summer really is over---in case those 40 degree temperatures were not a clue.

My knitting injury is behind me, so I am making holiday presents:

Berets and fingerless gloves for the people who make my life a lot easier at work. I still have a way to go since there are a few really helpful people

My knitting break came at the same time as my fall break, so I took up something new. I am trying to learn sewing and eventually quilting. It's odd that I have this strong urge to create tangible things of late. It is relatively new to me.

You know you are getting old when you doctor puts you on an anti-inflamatory medication and tells you to stop knitting for a week. I am suffering from a knitting injury, according to one of my sons. This seems to crack my husband and sons up. I, however, am not amused.

The offending wrist attached to the weakened hand. Besides being wrinkled, big and ugly, it now doesn't even work right. Plus it need a manicure.

Fall is here, and I just couldn't get past the frustration of a recent failed cardigan. So I made this simple pullover with something called Smile. It was so fast and easy that I didn't even have time to mind all the stockinette. So now I have a football game sweater, though with my kids at college, I'm not going to many football games. Still, it's nice to complete something and put the bad vibes of a lousy project behind me.
