After having 100 degree temps earlier this week the weather finally broke and dropped like 20 degrees over night. I’m soooo happy about the weather change but dealing the seasonal affective disorder I tend to get about this time of year is never fun. That not quite direct sun light in the afternoon seems to make me feel sad and tired. But I do love fall. Pumpkins, beautifully colored leaves, pumpkin spice latte’s at starbucks and comfort foods…these are some of my favorite things. And let’s not forget knitting! Who am I kidding?! Knitting is a year round sport of me.
I’ve been making good progress on my Rocky Coast Cardigan. All the knitting is done and I’m weaving in my ends now. If I can ever get a spare moment to finish, all I need done is blocking and it’s ready to wear. While I seriously love this cardigan, I’m thinking about giving it to my mom for her birthday. My mom takes care of 92 year old grandmother and my older sister who is disabled. It would be nice to give her such a lovely sweater. She often forgets to take care of herself and I live a few hours away, so I don’t get much chance to get home to help her out. Thankfully she does have good friends that she can rely on for support but not much in the way of family. Besides, I have enough of the same yarn to knit a second one for me. I think I’ll get it blocked and see how it looks before I decide.
