The mornings are chilly when I leave my apartment for work. I keep a cardigan with me all the time now, but sadly not quite cool enough for a hand-knit one (new goal: knit a lighter-weight cardigan). The Christmas stockings I’m knitting are coming along nicely; I just wish there were more hours in the day to knit. Yesterday I was enjoying being outdoors on my lunch break, and I noticed the different green shades of the leaves on a nearby tree. Seeing the variations of color made me miss living somewhere that the leaves truly do change color; it also inspired me and now I want to make a graduating green something out of yarn. I love this time of year.
