Fall is here and it feels like winter is moving in pretty quickly. The last two days I’ve woken up to 37 degree temperatures and it’s cold in the apartment. All I want to do is stay under the big squishy comforter snuggled up with Matt rather than get up and get out into the cold weather, all bundled up, but still freezing.
I love this picture that Matt took when we went to Sharon Woods last week. The colors remind me of my first fall and all the subsequent falls in Connecticut. I don’t think I’ll ever forget driving on the winding roads there, the trees all in full color, the air crisp, the sun shining, and my favorite music playing on the radio. Just like this time last year, I find myself really missing living there. The fall in New England is the most colorful I’ve experienced. That’s not to say there haven’t been beautiful trees in an array of colors here, it’s just that there seems to not be nearly as many trees. Fall is definitely my favorite season.
I’ve been working on the sweater – the yoke seems to be taking forever to get done, plus the pattern is a little vague as to what you do once you run out of purl stitches to decrease. I’m trying to wing it and just write down my modifications as I go.
Today I started the Crofter’s Cowl with Malabrigo Silky. It’s a pretty teal color and I think it will come out nice.
Pictures of the sweater, cowl, and the Twisted Flower socks soon. Right now I’m busy trying to keep warm! ;o)
