A little Autumn Flutters

Gosh, I bet most of us would love a little of that Autumn feeling about right now.  Just got through watching the news and so many places have had record breaking heat. 

Speaking of Autumn, here is a finished photo of Autumn Flutters.  Loved this pattern - just like SummerFlies.  I knit this with Malabrigo Sock yarn in the Terracotta colorway.  I used one full skein and about 1/2 of another.  This one is for me.  The only change I did is a picot edge instead of pleated edge.

Where have I been?  I actually have been up to my eyeballs in textbooks, workbooks, stethoscopes and the like.  I have just finished - today actually - a nursing asst. class.  This class was great but very accelerated and intense - especially for someone my age!  It was a lot of class, then most nights I had 2-3 hours of homework.  Written final was yesterday and lab finals today.  I passed.  Now I am a candidate to take the state test which should be in about 2-3 weeks after I apply.  Not a lot of knitting has been done I can promise that.  Or sleep for that matter!  What will I do with this?  I have no clue at the moment but I hope to eventually work in a hospice setting on a part time/as needed basis.  We'll see...

The only other thing going on is the PGA golf this coming week - one mile from my home.  Directly - straight shot.  Do I care?  Yes because traffic is going to horrendous.

Tomorrow I am going to my quilt shop for a little fabric therapy...  I have 4 quilt tops ready to go to my long arm quilter but haven't had time to get them to her yet.  3 are Halloween ones and one is from an Amy Butler kit I bought over 2 years ago...  I'll post soon...
