Fall Makings...

It's a quiet rainy sort of day, and I've been working on several neckwarmers for my etsy as well as an Advent Fair or Christmas Bazaar. I'm looking forward to that with great delight simply because it will be my debut as a crafter selling my wares in public.
It rained all day, beginning with dark clouds rolling in last night and not letting up until recently. A peaceful, simple day that makes me want to curl up by warm fire, with a cat and a good book.

Fall is coming...

...and it makes me want to knit. These neckwarmers will be for sale soon! The pink and black are a custom order, but you get the gist of what they can look like, eh? The multi has two siblings in the same colours, plus two others in more muted and rich autumnal colours.

I love fall. It is, without one doubt, my favourite time of year. Perhaps it's because I was born in the fall? Perhaps it is because it's just so rich with my favourite colours? Perhaps it is because I won't melt when I stand in the sun? Something along those lines. Here in the Northwest it rains a lot, but the wind, and the sun. I cannot find words to express my sheer ardor for Fall. The air is heady with the smell of the earth, so recently wetted with rain. The trees turn out their most marvellous colours before succumbing to the long sleep of winter. It's fall! Time to knit some sweaters!
