It happens every year. As soon as the leaves start to turn and the days get shorter I feel the need to hibernate. Getting up early is harder when it’s cold and dark and staying awake in the evenings becomes a thing of impossibility.
Still, I manage to get a few rows of knitting and reading in most nights before heading to bed bleary eyed.
I’m making slow but steady progress on another cardigan for fall, the Ramona. The classical shape is beautiful and I hope it will be another staple in my wardrobe. With a bit of cardigan experience under my belt I am also itching to try some more advanced knitting, like cables or colorwork next. Oh, and a shawl with some yarn I bought in Scotland. So many projects, so little time.
- I am getting my act together and blogging some photoshoots from the last few months on my photo blog. Jessi’s summer portrait photoshoot and Mats’ family photoshoot are up.
- I am on Twitter (about 10 years late to the game?). Still trying to figure it all out but I’m wondering why I ever deleted my old account years ago. Come and join me?!
- What if we decided to live a healthy life … to love our body rather than to punish it? Great article on how guilt gets in the way of health.
- How would you describe yourself in five words? Just another way of getting us to reflect on who we are and where we are in life. I will try to do this every year. For now my five words are: creative, photographer, determined, reader, dreamer
Are you feeling the changing of the seasons too? Any knitting projects to inspire me and add to my neverending queue? (I just had to look up how to spell ‘queue’). What are your five words you describe yourself with?
I always get that cuddle up, sleep a little more, snuggle and panic about what needs to still get done before the snows hit feeling about now. As for five words… House-sized, frustrated, impatient, blessed, loved.
Oh yes, snuggle season starts just now 🙂 Thanks for sharing your five words!
that cardigan is lovely! And I LOVE the idea of describing yourself in 5 words. For now, mine are: maker, writer, friend, wife, and hostess. Thanks for sharing this idea!
Thanks, Ruth! I love your five words 🙂
Oh that yarn looks yummy! I bet your cardigan will rock again! My five words are:
creative 🙂 , impatient, honest, insecure and helping
Thank you, I definitely hope so 🙂 Thanks for sharing your five words!
hi : )
love that cardigan you are knitting! have you decided on a shawl pattern?
my five words are: knitter, reader, grateful, present, growing.
Thanks Vibeke! I haven’t yet, I’m thinking Zilver (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/zilver) or Campside (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/campside). I only have two skeins of the yarn so I’ll just have to see how far that gets me.
I could dive into the coziness of those shots. The wool, the pattern – love.
My five words: observer, maker, writer, friend, mother(!?!). Still trying to get used to that last one. 🙂
Oh, you will but it likely won’t happen overnight 🙂 Such a defining time!
Such wonderful, moody photos. And I love the links you shared!
