It's Officially Fall

Not only have the neighborhood kids gone back to school, but …

I have had to get up in the middle of the night to put on my robe and close the window.

I have had to eat indoors for two nights in a row.

It is still dark when I wake up to blog.

I’ve ordered all my airline tickets for the entire rest of the year. Four sets, all to California. (I should just move there.)

I’m thinking about making wool sweaters with sleeves.

The new crummy shows are starting and the good summer cable ones are ending. (The Closer on TNT).

More Netflix movies are showing up in my mailbox.

I am wearing socks daily and soon will be pulling out my wool ones.

The last bolt of silk for the year has been ordered.

Hot tea is replacing iced tea.

Dieting is back in a big way.

My Ralph Lauren jeans are my daily uniform again.

Real estate taxes and quarterlies are due in a few weeks. Ugh

I’m back to making new samples for classes.

Yup, it’s time to think about quilting again. But the new acid dyes I ordered will show up on Monday, so there might be one or two more wool-dyeing days ahead. My pattern bags are here and ready for new patterns to fill them. Just have to make the new patterns. I know what they will be, and they are on my to-do list for next week. Schedules become more important in the fall, don’t they? And aren’t we sort of ready for a bit more organization and purpose for the days ahead? I am talking myself into this. Can you tell?

I dyed this wool today, while I was figuring out ticketing, flight departures and arrivals. I get very tense when buying tickets and did have to cancel a set, just in time not to get charged. Now that is all over and I am breathing a sigh of relief. The wool is from a sweater I disassembled from Goodwill. It cost $1.99 and is about 1400 yards.

The dye was garage sale Kiton as previously mentioned and worked just fine. The blue clumped up in solution and never really dissolved, making it very uneven in the dyebath. So the blue parts are much more variegated than intended. Do I care? Nope. That's what dyeing is all about. Surrenduring to the dye.

Now I am going to wind it into cakes and swatch it up with big needles. It will knit as bulky, since it was double stranded in the original sweater.

Yup, it's fall.

  1. You are having too much fun doing this yarn stuff! I wouldn't even know where to start to take apart a sweater...as usual you are truly Melody Johnson! No one else does the work like you do!

  2. And over here - Victoria, Australia - the first signs of Spring are being noticed... The prunus blossoms are budding turning the bare branches into pinky 'fluffies'...

    As I amble out of my winter hibernation I too, notice the waist band of the trousers are a little snug...

    That there is a layer of winter accumulation that needs attention -I think the correct term is 'Spring Cleaning'...

    I want to open ALL access points to the outside world and let the fresh air in...

    My cape daisy is flowering - an interesting flower shape - which I love...

    The garden is also 'spouting' - perhaps that could be the lateral answer for the 'snug trouser' problem...

    Hmm... Looking at the wardrobe thinking that if I wear these clothes again this season I will scream!!!!! Hmmm - but if all the waist bands are snug I may not have too!!!!

    This seems to be the part of the year that I make my plea bargaining...

    "I promise I will be SOOOOooo GOOD ...
    I WILL keep a spotless house - complete with home baking, fluffed cushions,straight lines of colour coded washing on the line, precise seams on newly ironed clothes. There will not be such things as unwashed dishes,unmade beds,unflogged mats and moulting animals, untidy people which will 'spoil' this promised mecca... I WILL hold a full time job outside the home - but I will still find in my spare time to do all of the above - plus I will study/read to become a more 'all round' interesting person... I WILL entertain all my friends in a manner they deserve, remember EVERYONE's birthday and send the appropiate card/present/luxury, do voluteer work,adopt a stray -well, what ever is stray at the time... The moon mission - did I forget that - how tardy of me... of course I will go..." if my waist band fits!!!!!!

    Yep, Spring is on the way..

  3. The colors of the yarn turned out beautiful. Can't wait to see what you create.
    I am starting to stress a little as fall approaches. It seems with school in full gear, and our travel calendar filling up (like yours) I am feeling like I am not going to have any time to just play with either knitting or quilting. That sets me in panic mode.

  4. We California girls would love it if you would move out here...
