Forever Fall


Fall is my favorite time of year. I get so homesick this time of year that I just want to pack up & head north.

This reminds me of a bumper sticker on a redneck truck I saw many years back..............HELP CLEAN UP THE SOUTH & BUY A YANKEE A PLANE TICKET HOME! I wanted to run the guy off the road & was offended at the time, but now would gladly welcome a free ticket home any day!

Don't get me wrong, the south is very nice, but very hot.

The roving that this yarn was before it got twisted just SCREAMED fall to me.

It started out as 4oz of superwash Merino. It's now 3oz of the best DK weight yarn I've ever spun.

You ask, what happened to the other ounce of fiber? It lays accidentally unwelcome in my vacuum cleaner bag along with cat & dog hair, human hair, sucked up bug parts, cat liter kicked from the box, kitchen tidbits, etc. You get the gist.....

No, there couldn't have been a new bag just placed in the vacuum, so I didn't have to think very long about retrieving it.

That's some gorgeous handspun! I'm looking forward to a nice, cool, Fall day in your back yard. *hint, hint* ;-)

If you went back now you'd just be cold all the time. It doesn't take long to acclimate. Of course, that gives you even more reason to knit...

Hopefully it will be cooler soon!
Love the handspun and it just looks like fall.

I laughed when I read this post. From one Northerner to another, don't run them off the road. Just use the horn Detroit put in your car. Not really! I have been in the Deep South for a while and have acclimated somewhat. My motto is: when in Rome do as the Romans. I like the glasses on top of the head. Mine stays there a lot too. That must be the over 40 thing. I think a tiara made from glasses might sell to the over 40 group. Keep those needles clicking!
P.S. Fall is my favorite time of year. I miss the smells of Fall in the North. I wonder if a good dose of candy corn will make up for the lack of noticeable season change?
