You could feel Autumn peeking around the corner today. It was a great way to end my “staycation“.  The sun is still soothing and warm, but the light has become sparkling and magical and there’s a crispness in the air that whispers promises of exciting things to come. Oh, I love this weather, it feeds my soul.

The Myrtle family heard lots of oohing and aahing from me today. I embarrassed some of them with crazy dancing in the kitchen and they shook their heads and wrinkled their noses at my mutterings about the fabulous weather as I flung open windows and drank in the day.

But, it’s true. I adore the change of summer to winter. I suspect I’m not the only knitter who does. My Ravelry queue has been shuffled, my stash has been caressed and I’m gathering steam for the exciting months ahead.

I’ve got a yearning to cast on something in charcoal grey, but I’m yet to find just the right yarn and in the meantime have fished out some dreamy blue bfl/silk fingering dyed by Sparkleduck. It’s so pretty and fresh, I think it might become a wee cardigan.

Thank you everyone for joining me for my month of postcards. I’ve loved popping in every day and I’ve have been so touched by how many of you have popped in to say “hi” and tell me you’ve enjoyed my postcards.

So tell me, what’s your favourite time of the year? And, what are you itching to cast on? 

Love Lib X

P.S. You’ll be pleased to hear that Mr Myrtle fixed the washing machine :)
