Inklings of fall

September is a great month in my neck of the woods. The humidity finally drops down and you can see the change in the light. There's an ever-so-slight turning in the color of the leaves. It's nice to actually feel like being outdoors again after the heat and humidity of August.

My interest in knitting takes a little jump up. I've cast on a couple of new socks this week. (The sock below is an old one, but I cast on another pair in that color.)

I always seem to have a spurt of creativity when the weather changes, so there are always lots of new design ideas bubbling up in September. I tend to start a lot of new designs in the fall that may not be seen again for a while, but that gets them "locked" into my head somehow. (Winsome & Wise was one of those I started one fall and it feels fallish to me, especially since it's stitched in Gentle Art's Simply Wool.)

I'm looking forward to those days when it's cool enough to sit underneath a quilt that I'm slowly hand quilting :)
