Autumn now has truly arrived here in California:
Our porch is under a tree - this is about 3 days' worth of leaves. You can see the cat thinks it's a nice cushion for lounging around in the sunshine.

Honeybees shawl: I finally gave up on changing the construction (I wanted to make 4 square center panels, with bees and a lily-of-the-valley in each) - when I had two panels done I seamed them together, but did not like the end result. So now I'm actually following the instructions as written, and have finished the bottom faggot border, plus a few rows of the center panel - then on to the central swarm of bees.
Faggot border plus the first few rows of the center stockinette sectionCat Bordhi), because I have a lot of sock yarn stashed and want to make some more socks. Having a foot model will be a great help. I like Cat's Sock Knitting books - very creative.
