It feels like fall has finally arrived. The beginning of the week it was 70 and yesterday the high was 48. I do love fall days with crispy cool air – it was just a bit too windy yesterday and sprinkles moving through to be out enjoying the day. It isn’t supposed to get above 50 all this coming week so cooler temps are here to stay. I’ve got the next week off work so will be busy with various projects around the apartment – one of which will be to pack away the summery clothes and pull out all the knitwear.
Speaking of temps and knitwear – I’ve been trying to get caught up on my temperature tracker project. I was woefully behind. When I posted my last photo on Oct. 5, I had just knit the first 12 days of July. Here’s where I’m at now.
Last night I finished off the last of July, wound all the yarn for August I need into a ball and have a few days of August done. It’s a good thing the temps are changing because I’m running low on The Fox (the rusty orange color) and Oak (the green that sort of alternates a lot with the orange) since most of the temps those colors are used for are between 81 and 90 and July and August didn’t have a huge variety of temps.
I’m hoping by the end of the week to have this caught up to day but who knows what other projects I may get sidetracked with.
I also am working on a little mug rug in linen stitch. I love the way it’s turning out in this variegated yarn.
But the project for today is cleaning out and reorganizing some of the kitchen cabinets. I just stuck my head out the door and it is still really windy and 38 degrees – yep – fall has arrived! I just hope it doesn’t go straight to winter.
