A pot of tea and a bit of lace

It's beginning to cool off a bit here (high 60s at night last weekend and mid 80s - hoping to turn off the a/c next week!) so I am back to knitting like a fiend.  I have joined in with Jane Thornley's new KAL on ravelry - here's a link to my project page Branches and Dunes scarf.  I am inspired by a bracelet that I made a few years ago
Love all the fall shades but popped with pinks.
Lace looks hard but I find it so incredibly rhythmic and peaceful - watching the pattern emerge.

I picked up a couple of CDs at the Used Book Depot when I worked last week (CDs are $1 and DVDs are $3) and am listening to them this afternoon while I knit - so peaceful and happy happy happy. The CDs are Maidens of the Celtic Harp and New Celtic Moon (the Paul Haslem Consort). Perfect knitting music - and to make it even more perfect, I just brewed a little pot of Russian tea - off to pour a cuppa (Russian tea always needs a bit of milk to soften the taste). So delicious!

Hope you are having a wonderful day!
