distracted by cool

aster

Oh, help me, I am so distracted!

I love fall weather. Apologies to those of you who are mourning the passing of summer... I know it hurts. But I love fall more than any other season. I have a bad case of fall fever this week.

There is much work to be done, but I can't help gazing out the window at the brilliant blue sky, especially whenever a few stray dry leaves blow across the view. I find myself envious of folks in cool climates who already have apples and crunching dry leaves underfoot, and I can't help compulsively checking their blogs and Flickr pages every few minutes to spy on their crisp days while I should be doing something productive.

Most of all I want to knit. Sweaters! Tweedy wool in fall colors! Scarves! All of this while drinking tea and sitting outside somewhere in a snappy breeze that whips my hair and turns my cheeks pink. Want to join me?

There are so many pretty, wooly, silky fall colors in my stash calling out to be knitted. And yet I am stuck with spreadsheets and sundry obligations. Must be patient... sooner or later it will be time to play.

  1. Looks like you're a little further into fall than we are in the Pacific NW. It only arrived last weekend, and that's when my asters popped into bloom. They're still fat and happy!

    I'm knitting with chunky yarn, but in a springy color. Conflicted? Nope, just happy!

  4. Fall is my favorite too. I really love those sunny but cool days. I got married on Sept. 26,1987 and it was sunny and 80 degrees. I can't believe I had the nerve to plan an outdoor wedding at the end of September.
