It gets quieter in the parks around my neighbourhood as the season shifts. All the obvious reasons, the kids are back to school, it is cooler and the impulse to run around the park fades. There are no weekend picnics on the lawn or teenagers partying in the woods behind our house, it is too cold to hang out there at night now mostly. My daily trips into town are complete, and the rambles around the city to see it with fresh eyes are more contained to my immediate area.
Isn’t it tempting to think that someone could look at this and try to recreate it? A sturdy hand knit to keep one warm under a grey sky? Maybe my imagination is pushing it a bit, but I don’t really think so.
It’s all greys today. This is the Twilight Scarf, from a fine fleece, a lovely book that features items done with both hand spun and mill spun yarns. I did this with the yak/merino I spun up and it is incredibly soft and light. It will cover a draft when the cooler breeze comes through.
