i like your hat!
it feels like fall has finally made a commitment to stay. it can fake you out. it will be all cool and crisp and you pull out all of your sweaters and scarves and gloves and hats and socks, and bam! it's 80 degrees again. i'm done with 80 degrees. i like cool. i like cold for that matter. i love the sweaters and scarves and hats and socks.
i work in a busy bakery where people come and go all day. i love to see all of their handknits. you can meet a lot of people by admiring their hats and sweaters. but , also, they might think you're a little crazy. "oh my god! that's the most beautiful sweater i've ever seen!! did you make it? what kind of yarn is that? where did you get it? can i feel it? now, let's just take a little peek and see how you finished off those seams..." there's a fine line, and i cross it all the time. i can't help it, i love to knit!
so, as the mercury drops, i will be happily bundled up and knitting away, inspired by the beautiful things i see every day.
hello fall! i've been waiting for you!
