The beautiful Fall temps we are having here in Arizona helps one to forget the long hot summers. It also causes the desire to knit and wear knits to heat up. 118 degree temps are forgotten for a couple of months and I couldn't be happier.

Being happy leads to the desire the cast on all the things. While I am trying to refrain because it would be great to clear off the many WIPs on the needles, Fall socks needed to be cast on and were.
Needles nearly caught on fire with excitement when I cast on a lovely test knit for a favorite yarn dyer and designer.
Taking advantage of cool mornings by knitting on the scrap sock yarn blanket.
Not even close to the finish line and that is okay by me. These little squares are filling times when I only have time for a few rows of knitting.
Beautiful weather also brings on my desire to cook. Months of salads and cold pasta dishes are soon to be replaces by simmering soups and bubbling casseroles. Saw this recipe and new I wanted to add it to the menu this season. Remembered drinking this beverage when as kids we went sledding, minus the alcohol at that time, this too will be on the menu.
I know for many of you not in Arizona this season is bringing early snow and rapidly dropping temps, is it also bringing on the knitting?
My beautiful friend Erin shared this video on her blog. I could watch it for hours.
Have the best day today!
