I woke up before 7 am this morning realizing that we hadn’t gathered up the trash and taken it out last night for pickup this morning. As Brad was heading out to the drive to do just that I had a glance at the thermometer that we have outside the living room window and saw that it is 52° out there!
Finally! It’s actually Autumn. The First Day of Autumn! I know, I know. We have some pretty warm, maybe even hot days to come before the cooler weather is here to stay, but that was a nice surprise to see how cool it is outside this morning before the sun was even up over the treeline. We will open the house later and enjoy the fresh air.
I’m still working on dishcloths for Audrey’s kitchen. I’m on number eight now and I need to decide what to do for a Knit-a-long with my MeWe knitters group…something with a new technique is the theme and I’m thinking of a slouch hat in color work. Maybe a solid/semi solid yarn and a variegated yarn with a pattern. I’ve got some gorgeous yarns in Fall colors, too! I’ll take a peek in one of my Elizabeth Zimmermann books and use one of the patterns I like.
Today is chiropractor day and I need to get my hair cut while I’m out and about. Brad had a very long day yesterday and didn’t get home until dinnertime so he’s gone back to bed for a bit. I’ll have a hot shower and head out for my appointment in a while and let him have some time to himself here at home for a change.
While I’m thinking about it I’ll start looking at color work patterns and see if I can make up my mind about which yarns to use for the hat.
