Morning gift

When I walked out to catch the bus to town just after sunrise, another rider was busy looking up behind me with her camera. Once I got to the bus stop, I saw with great surprise a beautiful full rainbow lighting up the sky. Her camera couldn't capture it, but I thought about my setting for sunsets and thought maybe it would capture the rainbow. One end, the right-hand side, was much brighter than the left-hand side, but I of course need to show you both sides. We both remarked on how beautiful it was and saw it as a good omen for the day and for the season.

I intend to spend some time tomorrow going through old Thanksgiving pictures and find some memories, which won't be as good as some of my other blogger friends (not quite old enough, really),  but it will surely bring up some memories of my own. This is likely to remind me of funny things that happened in gatherings past, as well as fond memories of loved ones who have moved on.

I finished the hat already! Today I went down to the yarn shop to learn how to finish the hat. I got to the last 11 stitches, and then it said to "weave them together." Huh? How? But it was easy, once I was the proud possessor of a tapestry needle. It was so much fun, and actually pretty easy, that I decided I'll make another one. Already I have one scarf and one hat, and another two in the pipeline! Who knew that I would end up having so much fun with knitting needles?
