November...

...is here again. That does not seem possible. I don't think the garden looks quite as empty as last year when we tidied up

some of the bulbs I planted last month are already peeking through


and some are not


Our robin is back. Well I like to think he is the same one despite what they say on autumn watch

We first saw him on Sunday and back he came today. There is a cheeky mouse too who sits scoffing bird food. I am sure he is not he one who used to come but he could be the one I rescued from Tia's paws!


The jumper was finished in time for Elizabeth to take it with her last weekend


I was more than pleased with it I have now stared a chunky card with yarn from the stash. It is a new pattern though and all I can say is I am glad that I am an experienced knitter as the neck decrease instructions are minimal.

Fairy is still awaiting her wand and a collar for her dress she is being very patient.
I have some home tutoring on a Saturday morning which is just as well because the school funding has come to an end.

This is blogaversary month there maybe a small gift for a lucky commenter.

Happy Blogaversary! Love your sweater. I have found that some of the patterns are not very clear.

We have had up to 2 dozens robins on our lawn lately. Just getting ready to fly south, I guess!

WE LOVE ROBINS....................
They are easy to spot because of their colour at this time of year...
I'm sure ours don't go anywhere they hang around :-)
Wendy, you have knitted an adult jumper there :-) AH, too much for me :-) WELL DONE :-) X X X

Wendy! How are you!?!? I'm so very far behind with blog reading - have missed keeping up with you & Biddle!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog & commenting on my 'letters' post. What a treasure you have in John's mother's letters!

Love the sweater you've knitted! I can knit ... a LITTLE. I doubt I'll ever tackle anything like you make! lol
