When we moved to Seattle, I knew what I signed up for. Rain (often, but not a lot), cloudy skies (a good excuse to stay in the house and read), and cool weather (perfect for wearing sweaters).
This year, that has not been the case.
We had warm weather (in the sixties) almost all the way through September with sun (SUN!!) nearly every day. Then the weekend before last, we had snow (SNOW!!) for several days in a row. It didn’t really stick, but, still! And the last three days we’ve had pouring rain and whipping winds. (My yard is a disaster- leaves and branches everywhere! But I figure I should wait to clean it up until the storms have passed, so I’m just sitting here looking out the window at the mess outside.) It’s like being back in the Midwest! It’s bananas!
I guess there’s just one thing to do. Knit.
(What, you can’t really be surprised that that’s my response?)
I love this cowl. I know the lace pattern is supposed to be waves, but I think it looks like my big pine trees whipping back and forth in the wind.

And this little pullover is too cute (and too cozy) for words. It’s exactly what I’d want to wear on a stormy day if I was a cute little kid. Ah, who am I kidding, I’d wear this today, if it was big enough!

How’s the weather in your neck of the woods?
