Foliage It looks like it is going to be a beautiful day! I love fall!

This weekend was very nice. On Friday night Gist and I went to the mall. We both got sweaters and I got a tripod and some lens filters. I have been having a lot of fun with my camera and I think my new accessories will continue to up the fun. I am looking forward to continuing to experiment with night shots now that I have the tripod.

Saturday was pretty chill. Gist went to the Cape and I downloaded pictures, did some work, cleaned up a bit, and generally puttered around.

Sunday was cold and rainy – perfect for watching movies and knitting! I started the day by making myself a yummy breakfast then I settled in for some serious watching. I watched V for Vendetta and The Lake House. They were very different movies and I really enjoyed them both.

Gist made it home in time to watch The Lake House and after we finished it we did a lot of TiVo cleanup! We watched Justice (which I like mostly for Jack Bristow), The Amazing Race (I am so upset that Duke and Lauren had to go home) and Brothers and Sisters. Phew! That’s a lot of teevee!

All of that veg-time was not in vain, however: I am almost done with my full first pair of socks! Yes, the Broadripples (and my first Socktoberfest socks) are movin’ right along. I finished the first sock last week and yesterday I made significant progress on the second: I knit the leg, the heel and I am working on the gusset decreases right now. I hope I can finish them by this weekend – I want to take a new project to Bar Harbor.
