Fall Is In The Air

Once again the shorter days and cooler weather have caught me off guard.  If only summer lasted just a couple more months.  We often have a lovely fall in the Pacific Northwest but I'm greedy.  I am so happy in bare legs, the thought of yanking up tights.........shudder.  

The good news is that I have three new pairs of socks to wear:

A cozy hat narcissistically named Julietta:
Etta ~ knit in Merisoft Hand Painted Aran (a birthday gift from Tink)

and a couple of fun knits:
Starfish Washcloths  in Lion Brand Cotton-Ease

You've been busy! I'm particularly drawn to the Leyburn socks, a perfect combination of yarn and pattern.

I refuse to acknowledge the cooler days. We are still in full-on summer mode here!

Happy Birthday - whenever it was or is!
Love the socks. You tempt me to cast on a pair! See you Thursday. Peg

Lots and lots of work, and wow! Those first socks remind me of a pair a friend knit me, that make me happy every time I look at them, much less put them on. Your projects are beautiful, all of them.
