While it may not seem evident at first, upon further inspection of my WIPs it would seem that the allure of the season is part of my yarn and project choices.

When skies turn to overcast and the possibilities of rainfall happen, I reach for yarns to reflect it. Case and point, the shawl above was once pink. While pink is still a favorite color and a usual go to, the more I knit with it, the more it felt wrong. Too bright and much too summery. In stepped gray as the replacement. Funny how that happens sometimes, right? Have you found yourself reaching for the colors that represent Fall as well?
In honor of Fall, My Sister's Knitter Raverly group has a new KAL beginning. Hopefully it will relate to you as it is a sort of, "What do you knit in the Fall months" type of KAL. Maybe you use these months to get your Christmas or gift knitting done? Then there is a chance you begin the mission of tackling the WIPs so that you can start the new year with nothing on the needles? So join us for a bit of fun and support whatever Fall knitting means to you. :)
Enjoy a song and have the best day today!
