July 24 – Momentum

Only a week left of July and it's easy to tell by the weather – suddenly there's a cool undercurrent to the air that speaks of fall days to come. There are still plenty of steamy days in the works, I'm sure, but the season is definitely on the wane. I've got a summer shawl on the needles, and I'm up to here in partially knitted Christmas socks, but my mind is on autumn sweaters. There's still so much to enjoy about this season (my god, we haven't even got to the peaches yet!) but it's hard to reign my imagination in. When the sun drops below the horizon and the weather cools off, and there's but the faintest scent of woodsmoke in the air, it can't hurt to think about worsted weight wool and the simple rhythms of a cabled sweater. No, it can't hurt at all.

  1. Hi, Austen. I'm a long-time reader of your lovely blog, and am finally leaping into the blog world myself. I wanted to say hello, and to let you know how much I enjoy reading your evocative posts. It's heading towards the end of winter here in Australia, but just the mention of woodsmoke in the air makes me wistful for early autumn once more.


I read and appreciate every comment. Thank you for getting in touch!
