I'm not convinced. It's been quite warm here, over 70 during the day, and not cooling off enough at night. Now don't get me wrong. I love summer. I think fall is my favorite season though. I love the cool nights, hauling out the jeans and cozy sweaters, the beautiful changing colors, putting that dreaded bathing suit away. Not quite yet I guess, it's still looking quite summery here.
The yard is so beautiful yet. I know it won't be long (the weather is hinting at much cooler temps next week) and everything will start dying off, so I am enjoying it while I can. There are just a few hints here and there that the cooler weather is on the way. I'm enjoying watching those emerge too.
Finally I have a picture of the start of my new sweater. Maybe I will be close to finishing by the time I can bear to wear it.
I still have a long way to go, but I have to finish a few other things before I can fully concentrate on it. I love the colors and I'm praying it fits. It's so hard to try it on and get a true idea of how it will look on me. At least it works up quickly, so if I have to rip (heaven forbid!), it shouldn't take long to redo.
My knitting time was recently dominated by this:
I recently designed a sock exclusively for the Woolgirl Sock Club. The theme was ladybugs, hence the Fly Away Home Socks were born. These were really fun to knit and design. There is a gorgeous pair here on Ravelry. Woolgirl included some extra contrasting heel and toe yarn, and they look absolutely darling made that way! If you haven't checked out Woolgirl, it's a great place to get your yarnie fixes!
Coming soon, 2 new patterns!
