It truly is amazing how over the last week, the air has changed. The humidity of the summer has waned, the night is coming a bit sooner and even the sound of the bird's songs have changed.
For me, Autumn truly is a special time.....the warm days and cool sweater mornings, the smell of wood stoves starting up again. The brilliant colors of the leaves and the sound of those leaves as you walk thru them.......I just love it!
With the refreshing air change, my hands were itching to get busy once again with fiber. The fall fairs will be starting up before long, so it was time to get moving :-). The 2 black/purple hounds-tooth chenille scarves came off of the tableloom last weekend and I finished the angora silk triangle scarf the day before last.
The fingerless gloves, pictured above, are made from a blend of polwarth and angora that I spun last winter, trimmed in angora. Aaahhh....it does feel good to be playing with angora again!
Over the next few weeks there will be lots of knitting and weaving going on and the dye pots will get cranking again.
Hmmmmm.............maybe THIS is the reason why I love Autumn so much!
