When the weather changes and the days become damp and chill, the knitting needles that have sat idle all summer long come into use once again. In the stash of wool I received from my mother last year, there were 7 skeins of a lovely natural wool in a heavy worsted weight. I've been wanting to knit a small lap blanket and chose a simple pattern in a basketweave stitch. It is knitting up quickly on size 9 needles!
Some simple changes to the top of the china cabinet made it seem more fall like. A beeswax candle in an old brass holder, a couple of metal birds and some of my favorite ironstone pieces. The floral garland has been put away until the spring and the summery wreath has been replaced by one in fiery autumn shades.
One of the white bunnies from my collection resides under the china cabinet. I love this season of settling in for the colder seasons.
