Autumn is Official












This is my yarn. As a matter of fact, this is last years yarn. Last years yarn that never even got made into something beautiful. I have yet another terrible fetish to confess to you...I love yarn, especially the expensive ones that feel like silk and are dyed with colors I've only dreamt about. You see, scarf season is right around the corner and broaches...Oi, don't even get me going about broaches. (They look gorgeous on jean jackets) Tis the season to start knitting scarves for friends, my friends friends and finally, myself. It's such a cozy, domestic, wintry thing to do. Like many other things, they are specifically tied to the bringing in of a season and to me, Autumn isn't really here until I'm assessing my yarn situation and planning to buy more. So, regardless of the calendar, or the weather outside today, it is official...these warm, fuzzy balls of color have an announcement to make...Autumn is official and Winter is just around the corner.

What makes Autumn official for you?

Well, since I live in SW Florida, I don't get to see any changing leaves. But usually somewhere around mid October, I walk out by the pool early in the morning and there it is . . . a bit of cool, dry air. That's when it's fall for me.

the first sign of fall for me is my hair swelling up in the damp air to resemble some of your fuzzy yarn ;-)

Omigosh,those are So pretty! I want to reach through the screen and pet them.

What makes autumn official for me isn't any one thing, it's a combination of several things - when we have the first fire in our fireplace, when I switch the sheets on the bed from plain cotton to flannel, when I make soup for supper after a summer of grilling and salads, when I start wearing socks and close-toed shoes every day instead of wearing flip-flops.

I love, love fall, it's my favorite season. Your yarn is so very pretty, I am not a knitter, but I do crochet.

What get's me excited about fall? The smell of woodsmoke in the air, crispness of the morning, and baking apple pies and yes I admit it I love football!

Love ya!!

Hi Darlene,
I read your (and Boho's) posts reguarly and feel like you're one of my friends from way back. The changing trees are my thing. Most of all I love that special moment when I'm walking along by myself, and a leaf gently falls right in front of me. It always amazes me that, for that one moment in time, I was the only one to see that particular leaf fall. it makes me think about serendipity and how lucky and unique we all are.
Lovely to 'meet' you at long last.
