Whether the Weather
Good morning! I hope you've had a fabulous week. My week was perfection, I spent each day catching up on all those tasks that were set aside for traveling. I'm currently sitting in my kitchen drinking my last cup of morning coffee before the day officially begins. The weather is deliciously cold (gah!). Yesterday was windy which turned warm air into autumnal breezes. The week's forecast is going to be cold, finally.
We had lunch outside on the patio probably for the last time earlier this week. Well, at least I had my last lunch, my husband might just sit out there in the cold clinging onto the dregs of summer living. He is so sad that autumn has arrived. I am not, I've been daydreaming of sweater wearing weather for about six weeks.
Yesterday I focused on knitting and finishing the sweater, all day long and as you can see by the above photo it is drying after a little bit of soaking and mild blocking. My husband thinks Holly will sit on it, I do not. Who would want to sit on a wet sweater?
Once that project was officially off the needles, I promptly cast on a wee hat for my grand nephew for a Christmas present. Toddler knitting is just as speedy as baby knitting. I will blast through this project over the weekend. I also have some knitting ideas for our grandson as well.
A few weeks ago, I bought some new fountain ink, 'Noodler's Polar Brown', from JetPens. I cannot get enough of writing with the ink. It sums up autumn perfectly. The changes seasons inspires me to knit more, write more and to reflect more.
Have you started knitting for Christmas? What are your autumnal projects?
