It’s officially Fall! Happy Autumnal Equinox, everybody! It’s now officially the best time of the year!! It’s time for cool, drizzly days, steaming cups of hot cider, and cozy afternoons knitting on the couch and listening to old records. The Autumn Rain has started here in Seattle, and I’m looking forward to everything getting green again.
(What, I’m the only one who prefers cold and rainy over sunny and hot? Well, I’m a knitter, it’s in my DNA.)
Autumn is the time of year I like to start hibernating, making my house as cozy as possible. It’s all about warm soups and comfy blankets (until the day after Thanksgiving, at which point my house turns into a Magical Christmas Extravaganza).
If I didn’t have a million things to do, I’d make myself this fantastic fall afghan. I have a similar one that my Mother-in-Law (Hi Kris!) made me years ago. I keep it in my studio, and it’s perfect for when my old house gets a little too drafty. But this one’s lovely color scheme would be perfect for autumn!

Autumn Lace / Winter Lace / Mayfield Afghan by Lion Brand YarnI don’t think you can have too many blankets (just ask my husband), but you can’t be truly comfy without a few pillows in the mix. And my current throw pillows are getting a little bit… disreputable (dog hair just gets everywhere). Maybe I should bust out a couple cute new throw pillows? Maybe ones like this:
