Even though it is the middle of August, it’s starting to feel distinctly autumny here.
Some trees are already dropping their leaves.
Others are still desperately clinging to them.
All this definitely means the knitting season is well on its way. A little bit of shopping was in order.
I’m thinking stranded mittens. Or maybe a hat.
Not long now before it’ll be perfectly acceptably to snuggle up in front of the fire with a blanket, a hot cup of tea and (of course) my knitting.
For now I’ll try to enjoy the rare days of sunshine that are still remaining and continue to knit socks. The pattern above is Mosaic Marbles by Kristen Hall, stage 4 of Tour De Sock.
