My You Tube channel is Crafty Cape Codder.
I am also on Instagram as Crafty Cape Fodder.

I have decided to participate in Vlogtober over on You Tube. If you do not know what it is, Vlogtober is where you try to post a You Tube video every day during the month.

I got my 1st video down to 15 minutes. It seems a bit lagging in some spots, but I will learn about that as I go along. The next few videos will be shorter and "on the go" as I am going to be mixing things up a bit! The 2nd video is in the 5 minute range! It is an interesting experiment for me. I have always used Android, but will be using Apple for Vlogtober. It should get better as I go along, but I am having fun and in the long run, that is what counts.

So, please join me over on Crafty Cape Codder. The fun thing is that you get to hear my voice. I always wonder about how writters sound in person. Sometimes I go to readings by authors.

 Please follow along with me this month. I have always used Android, but am using Apple for this. Laugh with me as I bumble along learning something new. Maybe it will inspire you to start a You Tube channel of your own if you do not already have one.  If you already have a channel, let me know!

Some Fall Knitting

I do not count rows when knitting socks. I knit the length of the needle and then divide in 1/2 to start the heel flap.

I like purple in the Fall. Tootsie wanted to be in the photo too!

I noticed that even the washcloth I just finished has purple in it too!

Tootsie and Lola prefer that I do not knit all so they can sit on my lap.

My little basket for car knitting while I am waiting. 1 pair of socks and a washcloth. All those little bits of time add up!

Thank you for stopping by and reading my post.

Car Knitting

Yes, my son is a teen now...taller than me!  BUT...he is not quite old enough for a driver's license.  So, I try to keep my car knitting handy. I do not always knit while waiting. Sometimes I just rest, and that is ok! Maybe I will watch a You Tube video or color in one of my fancy coloring books, or journal. It depends on my mood and how long he will be.

Right now I am working on this beautiful cowl of deep cranberries mixed with teals and greens. It is so soft and squishy! There are only 12 more rows to go. The weather forecast is gray and drizzle, so maybe I will get to finish it this week if I bring it inside. Then I will have to put a different knitting project in the car. 

This cowl matches the fuzzy maroon jacket that I am wearing. I am also wearing a beautiful scarf from my sister-in-law, who is a very skilled knitter. When the natural lighting is better, this precious knitted gift deserves a few photos! I wore it often through chemo and it is still a firm favorite. It is May, but feels more like March here. I have not moved my cozy items from the front of the line yet!
