One last summer Monday

 I thought I'd be showing off my own – not this dame's – FO (finished object) today, but my latest knitting project has hit a couple snags. Ripped back a couple inches to fix one, then saw another problem last night and gave up. Temporarily, of course. It's not like I'll be wearing wool anytime soon! Nor is there a shortage of flies to feed this fine fiber artist in my barn. Love the overlapping structures of web and rafters.

Still feels like summer at . . .

How DO they do that? It's still a beautiful mystery, isn't it?

Hope your knitting conundrum gets straightened out easily.

That is one BIG spider, I am so tired of dust and cobwebs but I don't have any spiders nearly that big. In November the mountain roads around here are covered with tarantulas during mating season but haven't seen any here at home.

We are cool and rainy here today. The 10 day is awesome and I am so. glad. Still working on my sweater in the evenings. One or two rows ain't fast, but better than nothing.

That is a BIG spider! Wonder what kind it is...and am very glad it's in YOUR barn and not mine...

Super photo of the spider. Great analogy of both you and the spider spinning and weaving.
I will wait for the tarantulas to arrive as T.L. talks about. They come, looking for love, as the days get cooler. I like them because they don't hang from my rafters in webs. You see them coming... no surprises.
Wonderful photo.
