waiting for fall

This has been one of the mildest summers I can ever remember in Arkansas. June and even July were much milder than normal, and the first week of August was still below normal temperatures - mid to high 80's. 
Then it hit - the real summer temperatures, along with all the humidity. Sticky, buggy, muggy - you name it. That is how you usually describe summer in Arkansas. The fact that we had a very delayed start to the normal yucky weather means we "won" in my opinion.  Even if we have a month of typical August days, we still got to enjoy milder temps for a couple of months.

That said, I'm still ready - and longing - for fall. I love it. I love everything about it. Cooler temps, crisp autumn air, apples, sweaters, leaves, shawls....

Still on my needles in anticipation of fall shawl weather is the Hollows Shawl. It's grown a good bit, I'm in the middle of the second short-row section, and I love every stitch. Perfect evening knitting. 

I have a feeling this one will get a lot of use:)

  2. I share your love of all things fall, and I too am so beyond ready. Florida has had a summer so brutal I dare say it has been unkind. I am hoping that this fall it will redeem itself. I can hope.

  3. Hi Jen,
    I hope you get some cooler weather soon! We are actually getting some early fall weather this week, so it's really got my "fall mojo" cooking!
