I really love autumn. Even with all the rain, and the cold, and this terrible wind that we have here, and the dreariness and everything. It has a certain charm, a certain poetic aura about it that gets me every year. And the colours, ah, the colours...
This year the beginning of October was so warm that you could sit in the park in short sleeves.
But soon enough the windbreaks were up at the beach
and the playgrounds were deserted.
And then finally it was cold enough to put on the February Lady Sweater I finished back in July (wool+alpaca at 40 degrees!), pack my camera and a willing photographer and head off for the river bank.
I paired it with two more projects that never had proper photos of them taken either: Travelling Woman shawl and Drops' 98-55 Bag with cable pattern in Eskimo.
Aren't I lucky that autumn colours are in vogue at the moment? I had put on a pair of Jaywalkers in matching colours too but we forgot to photograph them :(
