Earlier this month I experienced my first autumn moment. I was reading some knitting blogs and came across this pair of socks. They stopped me in my tracks. I stared at them a moment and knew I had to have some of that yarn. Right then I went to the yarn site and ordered some. It has arrived and I wound it this morning, and enjoyed it all over again. I can hardly wait to cast on but have decided November is probably the month I'd most enjoy knitting them.
When I look at the colors I see apples, beautiful apples that are so abundant this time of year in the states of Washington and Oregon, as well as some New England states. I see evergreens, and I see fallen brown cones from the conifer trees as I walk along wooded paths. I think of hot chocolate and a fire in the fireplace. I see a fleece throw in my lap, fleece, the wonder fiber of the Pacific Northwest.
Have you experienced your first autumn moment?
