Autumn

22Sep08

I want it to be Autumn now.  I really do.  I’m done with these rogue hot days that make dressing for the weather impossible.  I want mittens and scarves, and darkening nights.  I want pumpkins and orange.  Loads of coppery, burnished orange.  And thicker yarn.  Give me some DK at least.  I say ‘down with the 4-ply cotton’!  I want cosy!!!!!!!

I’m not the only one feeling like this – am I?

These  hydrangeas make me feel cosy.  I love their colour, which is changing daily.  See how forgiving they are too, remaining pretty whilst they’re drying out – even if you don’t change their cloudy water often enough!

Lily says thank you to everyone for the nice comments about her socks.  There’ll be more where they came from.  And I’d like to say thank you too. Thank you to everyone who visits, comments and comes back for more!  My readership is slowly increasing, and I’m loving the contact with more knitters.  Lily and I are deprived of real life contact with knitters so do stick around.  You never know – there may even be knitting again soon!

  4. i’m a true summer lover (one more day, please,please,please), but you make fall sound very enticing.

  5. We are of like mind! Beautiful flowers.

  6. Oh no….. roll on spring. Its been a long cold winter and I am enjoying the sunshine and the warm wind. But I know by the end of summer I will be looking forward to being cozy by the fire and knitting something with thick wool. Its really funny reading blogs from the other side of the world having completely opposite seasons!

  7. Beautiful flowers – the colours are just gorgeous. Have fun with the autumn knitting!

  8. I’ve been feeling like this for days now! Our mornings are cooling down, only about 70 and last week we got temps only up to mid 80′s which is actually cool for us. This week though it’s still low 90′s by the late afternoon, too hot for me at this time of year. Love your flowers!

  18. I enjoyed the last flourishes of sun which happily coincided with my holiday as it’s been so lacking this year but I’m definitely excited for autumn – got my snuggly cardis out this week – love your hydrangea photo – looks wonderful.
