I also picked some tomatoes – neither as many nor as nice as this time last year, but a decent haul for mid-October. If the warm weather holds, I figure on picking about this much every few days for another couple weeks. If not, oh well.
My Rhinebeck sweater is right on track: back, front, and one sleeve done. I'm loving it. Here's the vast expanse o' stockinette view.
With this much finished, I can tell the armscyes are not quite right, so I'm going to rework them after I finish the second sleeve. While I'm at it, I'll lower the neckline just a bit, too. The pattern is very well written, but Kureyon knits into a fabric with a firmer hand than many worsted-weight yarns and the mods will accommodate that. If I don't get the drape I want, I'll use a different yarn for the collar and possibly the button bands.
I'm hoping to finish the second sleeve tomorrow evening, October 15, during the third and final presidential debate, which will be moderated by Bob Schieffer at Hofstra University in Hempstead, NY.
Part of me thinks Long Island isn't that far from Exit 151 and the weather is quite mild, wouldn't it be fun to stand around outside waving a sign? The university does seem prepared for guests.
However, the prospect of a protracted sojourn on the Long Island Expressway, aka the World's Longest Parking Lot, dissuades me. Guess I'll stay home, keep an eye on the campaign stunts meter, and stick to my knitting.
