Well. It's been a busy week. Time for a Friday Round Up. . . catch-as-catch can!
My garden is winding down for the season. I think it's lovely at this time of year -- although quite hit-and-miss. My roses are blooming their little hearts out right now. I think they know it's their last blast!
We may even get a frost this weekend. Kind of early. . . but, then, the weather has been a bit crazy all season!
I really love the structure . . .
of a garden winding down . . .
for the season!
I haven't done a "purchase of the week" post in a long time. But, clearly, I've been busy "purchasing." I got this in the mail this week. . .
Oh, brother! I've got "gold member status" at Eddie Bauer. What does that mean, exactly? Well. It means I've spent way too much time and money shopping there. (It's not a credit card; just a frequent buyer card.) This makes me feel a little silly, actually. And sort of . . . creeped out. . . by the fact that they track my shopping. (I'm not naive . . . I just would prefer to live in the illusion that my life is my own!)
I know that patterned rubber boots are popular these days . . . but I had No Idea what an absolute RAGE they are on the college fashion scene until last weekend at The Pull. There were so many (so VERY many) girls running around in boots . . .
that even Tom (who is, trust me, typically blind to fashion!) noticed! They were EVERYwhere!
And speaking of fashion . . . how about that Mondo?
Way to work a color combo . . . not to mention stepping away from your own edge!

In knitting news. . . well, there really isn't any. I've been knitting on a secret project -- a Christmas gift for someone who reads this blog regularly, so. . . Do Not Open 'til Christmas. . . totally applies!
But. . . you might be interested in learning that . . . Twist Collective patterns are NOT test knit . . . and tend to be fraught with errata. Hmmmmmm. I'm feeling a rant coming on. But not today. Because . . .
it's the weekend! Have a good one!
