Fall is Coming.

Wednesday, 12 August 2015

(The title just doesn't have the same presence when you replace "Winter" with "Fall", does it?)

So, it's August 12th. Technically, still summer. Anyone else feel some sort of change in the air? Down in the south west, it's been cooler at night and later to warm up during the day. Of course, the humidity likes to linger.

We bought our first pint of blueberries today from the farmer's market. No more strawberries. WAH! A sure sign of oncoming fall.

I know a lot of people love the fall. I do really enjoy it. But...I really love summer! Maybe as we grow older, we just don't tolerate the cold as well anymore. Anyhow, I digress.

I thought it would be fun to list some gorgeous fall-inspired accessories from Etsy this week. Among them, some handmade knits.

This year I told myself I would learn to knit (other than just cast on and purl). That did not happen..despite getting needles, an idiot's guide to knitting book and best intentions. Maybe some of the knitted goods will inspire me to try it? What knitting advice do you have for me?

Hope you all have a great end to your week! It's all downhill from here!
