The Inevitable

100_8237a

Last night, after dinner, I was sitting next to the open kitchen window, and I felt it, a quick little chill, a change in the air.  Of course, my natural response (yours too, I expect) is to grab some yarn and start knitting a warm sweater.  I’m not saying it isn’t 86 degrees here today, because it is, and the sun is blaring down as usual, and the grass is brown and dead and  the sky is white with hazy heat.  Well, I guess I can’t explain it.

  1. You explained it perfectly. Although, here, we don't get that first hint of Fall for another month yet. But it comes sneaking in, on the early hours of morning dew. Hardly making a noise at all. Just a whisper. A brief hint of cooler weather to come.........

  3. The switchover from summer to fall is my favorite time of the year. I am always impatient for the cooler weather and crunch of fallen leaves. It's a great time to start a new project!

  4. I never want summers to end, mind you we don't get great ones in England, we have to make the most of the nice days!
    I was sitting her last night crocheting myself a scarf...if I ever finish it I hope I won't be wearing it for a while yet!

  5. Sadly we don't really get Fall around here or that chill in the air. If we are lucky, winter will come around December or so. Never really know! Hot and hazy here today -- hazy because of dust. Yuck! I crochet all the time, all year long, for any reason. It's what keeps me sane. :) Have a wonderful weekend. Tammy

  6. We won't feel that slight change until October, it is just hot, humid, hot and more humid here in Florida. But that doesn't mean I am not making scarves and cowls.
    Have a great weekend,

  7. Are you designing your own sweater!!! That's ambitious. I just started designing my own hat and that's hard enough.

  8. Ha ha! I've been crocheting cowls like they're going out of fashion!
    I always look forward to the change in seasons and am a proper autumn/winter girl at heart!

  9. The only thing here showing the summer is halfway gone is the length of days--by now it gets dark around 8h30 pm while 2 months ago at 10 pm there wasa still light in the sky...
    But it seems the summer is finally arriving here! The past 2 days the temperatures went up and so did the fires...
    Have fun with the new project :)
