Wow…..! Sometimes in the month of August out in our backyard I was surprised to see this wonderful black Ladybug with no spots on it. It was just flying onto our Standard Willow Tree where I was sitting close by. It is so unique in its colors that I still have not found out if this is normal to see a black Ladybug or if I was just lucky to spot it.
Some Great Fingerless Gloves
I love this fun pattern called “Fishtail wristwarmers“. It is fun to knit and only uses up one ball of yarn. I have used Lang Yarn ” Jawoll Superwash” in gray and “Meilenweit Cotton” in orange. I have to say both look and feel nice. My favourite though would be the gray one, knit with Lang Yarn “Jawoll Superwash.”http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/fishtail-wristwarmers#
As today is Halloween the orange one would be the perfect one to wear tonight. The pattern was fun to knit and you get into the pattern repeats soon.
I will work on a few more for some Presents. Hope to keep a few children happy and warm in the cold winter days. Perhaps we all should start to think of the poor and just make one extra item for just one child. Even one will make a difference.
Fall Colors in Backyard
One of the pictures I took in the backyard. No fuzz and stuff just liked the setting and the colors. Our red burning bush is just starting to get red. As the days have passed the color just intensified.

#22 Long Pointelle Coat
by Michele Rose Orne
from Vogue Knitting, Spring/Summer 2008
This was a fun project especially since I made two of them. The first one was too small so I gave it to my daughter and made another one for myself. Fun and light to wear in a hot day if you like to cover up or on a cooler summer evening.
Happy Halloween to all
Wow only two days away and kids of all ages are looking forward to dressing themself up in all the fun costumes. Let’s hope the weather will hold out for all of them to go Trick or Treating. So ……….for now stay safe and happy Trick or Treat.
Enjoy the fall colors too.
