One of the first additions I like to make to my fall wardrobe is a new scarf (or two, or three...) And this one is a really fun, easy and quick knit. I used 2 full skeins of yarn and wish I'd had about half a skein more...it's an "ok" length, I just like mine a little bit longer.

I've been doing the Sock-A-Month Knit-A-Long this year. The only rule is to knit a pair of socks every month. Joining has really boosted my sock production. That and my desire to have a drawer like this. I've knit a total of 30 pairs so far this year. 5 pairs are covering other people's feet, which means I've kept 25 pairs. I'm totally obsessed and don't see myself stopping anytime soon, LOL!!! (Maybe I'll never have to wear store-bought socks again?!?)
That's about it for my neck of the woods today. I still have a couple more knitty finishes to share, but gotta get some pics first.
We've been having the most wonderful fall weather! The boys have been wearing shorts the last couple of days and there were a lot of people handing out candy on Halloween in shorts too...amazing! I think I always had to wear a coat over/under the costume as a kid!!! Hoping you're having a fantastic fall too!!!
