I am so happy that it is finally September! I love autumn! There is just something about the leaves turning all shades of yellow, orange, and red, the weather cooling off, the feel of the air that I look forward to every year. I was out shopping the other day and all of the craft stores have the Halloween decorations out. For those of you that don't know this--I LOOOOOVVVVVEEEEE Halloween!!!!!!!!!! It is my favorite holiday. What's not to love? You get to dress up in fun costumes, eat lots of chocolate, and decorate your house with all sorts of fun spooky decorations. (As soon as mine is decorated I will post pictures!)
Of course, the best part of autumn--aside from Halloween--is with cooler weather comes a need for all of those divine, lucious, hand-knit sweaters, socks, mitten, hats, scarves, etc. YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and you all know how I feel about that! I can't wait!
Unfortunately, it is still getting up to the 90's (F) during the day--no sweaters yet! The other day we had a simply beautiful late summer "gully washer" (that's where it pours rain for about 30 minutes and washes all of the gutters and gullies out!). As you can see from the picture it not only washed out my gutters but it flowed up into my yard to wash out my rock "gully". There is a nice sidewalk in front of the wood pieces under all of that water.
My Son decided he wanted to go play in the water. By this time the rain had stopped, but the "gully washer" was still flowing really nicely!--into my yard.
I thought I would put a couple of pictures of the yarn that is appearing in my etsy store over the next few days. The first picture if of some superwash wool sock yarn in "Rocket Red". This is great sock yarn! I love how the colors turned out!
