I'm all in for Autumn arriving and I know I've got a ways to go. Yesterday we went for a walk at the park and I delighted in the soft signs of the leaves changing. I was blessed with overcast skies and a cool breeze which helped me pretend we are closer to the change of seasons than we really are.

Today it feels like summer but I have my memories of yesterday.

I've been working on my sweater that doesn't have enough yarn. Have you noticed that I am facing reality and have quit saying 'might not have' enough yarn? I am accepting what is and planning how I am going to fudge the body along.

I'm nearly done on the second sleeve and will return to the body of the sweater and begin my problem solving striping of a different brand and color of wool.


  1. Just look at those red leaves; surely fall is right around the corner? Wishing you the best with your sweater and looking forward to seeing your creative solution!

  2. There is a definite change in the air. I can feel it. FALL is coming!!! I'm excited like you, but am also savoring these last days of summer (as long as it is not blistering hot and humid). I'm curious to see what you do with your sweater!

  3. I think a stripey sweater will be fun AND fun to wear.

  4. Color block is showing up in a lot of fashion so seems like a good option. Your photos are beautiful

  5. Beautiful pictures! That sweater will look great with stripes or blocks in another color, I'm sure.

  6. That was clever doing the sleeves and stripes will work, good call! Here in New Zealand we have signs of Spring. I’m more than ready for winter to be over. Leanne

  7. Those red leaves are a welcome sight. What else qualifies as a soft sign of fall? That sweater will look nice with a block of color in the lower portions of the body and the sleeves. Sometimes boundaries help me be more creative and playful. Here's hoping the problem solving is a breeze, preferably a fall breeze.

  8. Autumn is on its way in the UK too, a definite chill in the air. All the best with sorting your jumper, I look forward to seeing what you decide to do/use. I brought some grey Sirdar stories yarn to knit a cardigan but I purchased it as 2 lots, not altogether. It seems it's only me who can see a difference in yarn colour. One is an ice grey, the other has a slight beige-y tinge to it... in my opinion. Cx

  9. I too am savoring the hints at the changing season! Delightful!
