Early September

That time of year that casually floats back and forth between summer and fall.

There’s been windows open days and sweltering melt in a puddle days.

There’s been cold lunches and hot suppers.

There’s been procrastiknitting,

travel knitting,

and actual knitting.

There’s been good days and bad days.

There’s been bookstores and birthdays.

I love the slow indecisive progression, yearning for one and missing the other, sometimes it’s that little bit of disturbance, that unpredictability that I need to wake me.

AND

Because it’s my birthday (3/25/18) I’m having a little b-day sale today & tomorrow, 25% off my NINETEEN HUNDRED HOUSE & WESTSIDE APARTMENT dishcloth patterns! (No Code Needed 💕)

this & that

This color 💕 that absolutely perfect dusty color, I love the blue jeans & scraped knees of this!

This pale bag worked up in that wonderfully starchy cotton fabric, 100% of the reason I hate pre-washing fabrics is loosing that stiffness. (Question: I also cut a dress out of this fabric ..would it be too over the top to coordinate with my tote by adding in another matching layer to my knitting power suit?)

This soak, a woolly perfumed blend of brambly hay, rose & eucalyptus.

This is finished, but that color still ..ooof so good..

Oh, hi 💕
