It’s October

I forget how quick the light changes as soon as it’s decidedly fall. I’m taking note of the dirty hues for future color palettes and appreciating the unkept beauty and melancholy of the last roses. Still feeling a little of that unsettled creativity, not knowing what will be the next shift, getting comfortable sitting in the uncomfortable. There’s a dark wash of color on my hook, and moments when we’re desperately trying to hang on to the light, capturing the late blooms in crochet and making jewels with the lavender from grandmas garden. It’s October, it’s familiar.

garter, lace & roses

Some of my favorite things to make consist mostly of simple shapes, dense garter stitch

or intricate lace worked up thick and topped with tiny delicately crocheted roses.

Sometimes I’ll take the same but different lovey idea,

and make baby sized garter and plumped up flowers for days.

Always in my favorite beigey hues ..so true for my wool picks and often my lipsticks 💕
