Fall Friday in The Humble Bungalow...

Isn't this a bodacious looking feline?
The sculpture sits in front of the wool shop Boutique de Laine in Oak Bay.
(I am remiss in not making note of the artist)

I am close to finishing the Church Mouse poncho that I started early in the year.

My knitting project was stalled when I developed a frozen shoulder 
which after months is in the thawing stage.
 I am so grateful as I have not been very stoic with the chronic pain.

As I am able to knit again...
and the cooler weather inspires knitters.

I have joined a local knitting club.
We meet once a month at a local cafe and drink tea, chat and knit.
A wonderful group of women who gather to share their projects, 
help each other with knitting techniques and show off our finished items.

My next project...
which looks like a simple pattern by Church Mouse.
One that can be worn as a scarf or a shoulder warmer.

It is time to get out the sweaters and woolly scarves and socks.
Fall is bringing with it some cool and foggy days.

The light is changing...
foliage is taking on a new patina...

the leaves are rusting...

roses are wilting...

Spiders are coming out to play...
it is time to cocoon inside.

Our Humble Bungalow interior is dark with all the wood beams and wainscotting 
 we need to turn on many lights during the daytime.
Task lights are crucial to illuminate areas in which we read or knit.

sits on the arm of the Morris Chair and blocks the light!
Both cats like to sit close when I read or knit, they are great companions.
I need to hide my yarn and knitting bag as they think it is a toy!

Hope that you have a great weekend.
Thank you for popping by the Humble Bungalow Blog.
