The Autumnal Equinox is at 11:09 p.m., just a few hours from now. I cannot tell you how happy this makes me as I really loathe summer. Even the fact that it was around 90 degrees today and will be just as hot for the next couple of days doesn’t bother me too much because the end is in sight. Come on, Autumn!
And tomorrow is the harvest moon. That isn’t quite as thrilling to me, because the crazy drivers seem to crawl out of the woodwork around the full moon. So I am driving extra-cautiously this week.
So, anyway, I am making progress on the second sleeve of my cardi, albeit slowly. I don’t seem to have had much knitting time this week. I’m not sure where it’s all going. Perhaps there is a rift in the time/space continuum.
PlainJane asked in the comments:
Do you ever knit sweaters from the top down? I did that for my last raglan & it worked quite well.
I have knit top-down sweaters but I vastly prefer knitting from the bottom up. I am a big fan of seams, particularly in a sweater that has a very soft fabric, like this one. I am using a heavy fingering weight yarn at an approximately DK-weight gauge to make a sweater that is light and drapey, so it really benefits from the structure that the seams give it.
Well, I don’t have much to say today, and I need to get all set for the equinox. Maybe Lucy and I will howl at the moon.
Just in case we do, Lucy is resting up.
(Just so you know, a couple of years ago, L-B phoned me at the moment of the Winter Solstice and we howled at the moon together over the phone. And I wonder why my neighbors look at me funny.)
