Autumn is starting to settle into the Village. There have been a few false starts but it finally seems here to stay with the exception of the occasional slightly too warm day, which can be forgiven. I love this time of year. I think there may be a law that exists that says that if you are a knitter, you will spend half the year waiting for, as I affectionately think of it, hand knit season. The happiness that fills my soul at the idea of getting out my woolies would be hard to explain to anyone that isn't knitting obsessed. I thought it might help if I give you a peak into my sock drawer.
There. Did that make your heart flutter? If not I might be worried about the state of your soul.
With fall's arrival, there has been much nest fluffing happening around here-small changes to welcome the season. Switching out some pillows, throws and accessories makes me feel ready to hunker down.
The daily dog walks are starting to take on a golden hue and there have been many hours passed on the porch gliding with Clover. I should probably insert a picture of her here so you can see how big she's getting but I don't have any recent ones. Just kidding. My phone is approximately 90% pet photos and 10% yarn and tea photos.
As the days grow shorter, I want to spend more time with my nose in books. I've recently joined an instagram book club of sorts as well as buying a book box. I am thrilled to note that books seem to be enjoying a revival and as I can't imagine a world without them, it makes me very happy to be a part of that. I mean, I love my kindle for reading while I knit but the pleasure of turning pages or burying your nose in a book (literally) and inhaling deeply, just isn't the same with electronics.
I'm feeling very inspired lately and wishing I had many more hours in the day so I could do all the things I'm feeling drawn to do. And then also, so I could do nothing at all.
I hope you are all well. I know blogs aren't really what they used to be but I can't give up this place that has given me a home for my memories for all these years. I'll be back next week with a glimpse of what I've been making lately. Happy fall y'all!
