Fall is definitely here. Whether creeping slowly in...Or in full bloom...Knitting has been kinda put on the back burner for the last week or so. I'm still trying to slog my way through the ruffles, which are yearning to break free in all their ruffled glory. But alas, they are still stuck on the needles, all squished together:
It is taking me close to two hours per row now. I think I have about 12 rows left, so I may be able to get it done by next weekend if I can keep my nose to the grindstone. I'm starting to think about how I'm going to block this thing...scary!

Hope you all have a good weekend!

Beautiful pictures. The leaves haven't started changing here yet - I love this time of year and love the colors of fall. Can't wait to see Ruffles done! I bet blocking it going to be fun.

Wow, such beautiful autumn pics! Here, we're still right in the middle of summer with temps in the high 90s and swim-summer-and-sun weather, so no color changes yet unfortunately - I love the time when the leaves start to change!
Looking forward to seeing Ruffles done, it's gonna be such a beauty!

Sigh. Those are *such* great pictures. I don't know why, but the colours just aren't the same here. So thank you, I needed that :)

What gorgeous pictures. I'm really not looking forward to the ruffles on my shawl, but I am on chart 8. Finally.

nice pictures! The leaves are not that far along down here, but definitely starting to change. Hope to see some finished ruffles next week:)

Ruffles is looking fabulous. I can't wait to see the FO.

What great pictures. When I knitted flirty ruffles, the ruffles literally took me longer then it did to knit the body.

Oh, you can make it through the ruffles. I'll think ruffley thoughts for you. I love fall on the East Coast, it's so beautiful!

Well even though I know I have your e-mail address somewhere, for the life of me I couldn't find it.

Anyway, I knitted flirty ruffles back last year, early 2005. I think I finished it in April or March but I never blocked the thing. And when I got done I didn't like it because it was very LOUD! It turned out looking very hispanic, which I love in general, but I don't where many bright colors myself. But now that I have blocking wires, I'm going to block it this week actually, well after I find it (I think it's in my closet) and maybe actually put it to some use.

Here's the link to the post about it. http://knit-knack.blog-city.com/ole_and_contest_results.htm
