transitioning into fall

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.

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 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.

    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!

    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.🙂
