The leaves are changing , the nights are cooler, wool socks at night and a light sweater in the morning are marks of the beginning of my favorite time of year. People are finishing up forgotten projects and fantasizing about their first of the new season. We are loving our new space, but most of all the front porch and the garden. Wesley loves playing in the flowers and practicing going up and down the steps. Recently I got to meet Knit Purl Gurl who not long ago moved to the neighborhood. We had the best time knitting on the porch with coffee and chocolate brownies. We are looking forward to Having Namaste Bags. Currently I am reworking a pattern the I made for My husband a while back. It is based on an Elizabeth Zimmerman hat. I wanted to do a different color work pattern on it so I consulted Alice Starmore’s Charts for Color Knitting. Then the thought crossed my mind if I am referencing two of the knitting greats in this design I should definitely choose a pattern from his heritage along with our favorite influence…NATURE! It is working up nicely in Frog Tree Alpaca Sport and I will post some pics soon.
Also the cooler weather reminds me that I need to make new woolies for my little man. I think I want to make it out of Malabrigo’s Rios this year. So lovely!
