Autumn ebbs

pumpkinAutumn arrives with October, rising then ebbing

Like a tidal river;

We watch the skies for rain, scan trees for turning leaves…

Worry about winter.

When, really… autumn continues to dance with summer,

Impishly backtracking

Until summer boils our brains, and autumn chills our bones.

A tiny sweeter

I knit a sweater using E Zimmerman’s February Baby sweater design. Interesting pattern, although I wanted something less likely to catch on baby’s fingers. I revised it to have less lace (one panel of the lace pattern on either side of the front of the cardigan). I knit it with sock yarn, further reducing the size, because I’ve been told this little one is going to be early. If she arrives home from the hospital too big and healthy for this little gift, I will be thrilled.
Kind of a Project Spectrum knit — blues, oranges, neutral browns, whites, purples. Can’t figure out how many different months those cover. The sock yarn was a brilliant choice, because it ended up creating a faux Fair Isle pattern on its own.
