So Close

DSCF3178a

I know it’s only August and so maybe this is wishful thinking on my part, but it sure does feel like Fall.  There is a certain tang in the air, a certain slant of the light.  A crispness, I suppose.  The apples are ripening.  The evenings are chilly.  I want to wear this skirt, I want it bad.  I worked on it this morning, beside the open window, watching a rabbit eat my tomatoes frolic in the garden. There was hot coffee, and carrot cake for breakfast.  The sky was a cloudless blue.  Life was good.  I noticed the yarn was running out.

And then it did.

  1. Oh dear. Best get to your LYS toute suite!! That is a beautiful skirt and I love your choice of colours.Vogue Knitting for Fall (Autumn over here!) has some wonderful 'Scottish' themed knitwear in it. Mind you, anything that looks remotely like Fair Isle or Tartan (Plaid to you) seems to be deemed 'Scottish' these days!!Hey Ho.
    Hope you get to start clicking away soon.

  2. Oh no...at that point I would have rushed for another hunk of carrot cake because that's what I do when I suddenly get stressed, eat! ;) "Visit yarn shop" would be first on today's list of errands. I hope you can find the same yarn. Your skirt is looking beautiful, Kristen! I can't wait to see it done. xo

  5. I agree with you about the fall feelings. The light has changed a lot here in the past week or two.

  6. Oh dear - I hope you manage to get more yarn. I just commented to my husband that it feels a little like Autumn (he's a summer phile so wasn't best pleased by this comment!). I went out last night quite late to let puppy Luigi have his final toilet and I noticed a misty softness in the air. Lovely. xxx

  8. Oooo I hate when that happens! As much as I love Fall I need some more hot summer weather to ripen up my tomatoes! All I've gotten so far have been the little cherry ones...my big tomatoes are beautiful but GREEN! It looks like we'll be trying fried green tomatoes soon :)

  9. I love your quilt from the previous post that you are working on at the moment. I am a third of the way through making a patchwork top for our king size bed and I am getting way ahead of myself wondering how such a large patchwork top can be quilted with a sewing machine? Does it have to be hand quilted?

    I cannot wait for that autumn crispness to arrive; I love autumn and that feeling of starting a new chapter in the year. Love the skirt you are working on too x

  10. I love the skirt, you are going to have a great time wearing it. Hope you found more yarn, enjoy your August, it is still absolutely disgusting here in Florida.
    Hugs,

  11. Oh no, too bad that you run out of yarn. Hopefully you'll get the right color again! If not, maybe another matching tone. I agree with you about fall, it's already in the air. Nevertheless I'm hoping for a good many sunny summer days before the dark and wet season begins ;-).

  12. Oh no! Hope you can get some more of the right color. I wish it felt like Fall here in IL. It has been warm, cloudy, and VERY humid...I am hoping for rain to clear the air.

  13. Oh no! I do hope you easily find more matching yarn - so annoying when it runs out unexpectedly like that!
    Mother Nature is doing her stuff - we will officially be into Spring over here on 1st September and already there is a slight change in the light, morning and evening; I welcome it.

  14. Your skirt looks so good...surely you'll be able to get some additional yarn?

    Naughty rabbits must take their hints from Peter and his family.

    Over here in NYC, it is still summer, but a pleasant sort of summer. Afternoon showers today came and went and continued into the evening. Humidity up, but temperature still okay ... for knitting.

    More of the same tomorrow.

  15. Hello. I've been lurking on your blog for a while and I just have to say that I really enjoy your posts. You amaze me with how lovely your projects are and with how quickly you work! I love this skirt. I am an extreme novice when it comes to knitting. But I just added this skirt to my Ravelry library!

  18. Hi Kristen... for some reason I couldn't reply direct to your email. Yes, you make perfect sense re bike clips. I was looking on the internet and wondered about quilt as you go? Will do some more thinking on that one. Have a nice day... would love carrot cake for breakfast!

  19. Crisis of severe status!!!! HATE when that happens! I also want to make 'that skirt' but am worried that it will 'bag' at the rear after sitting for a while. What do you think? xxx

  23. S***T that is just ... you know...I can't think of anything else to say! What are you going to do? I always play Russian roulette with balls of wool, it does make knitting sort of more exciting than it really is but when it goes wrong it is bad. Jo x
