People in other geographic areas may have begun to feel fall weeks ago. For those of us in south Texas, it’s still been summer. A bit of a milder portion of summer, but summer nonetheless. All of this is about to come to an end. This weekend, we are getting a cold front. Okay, so for us that means it will be in the 50s for lows and low 80s for highs, but that is definitely a change for us at this point. Football is on, there is a crispness already beginning in the air, I can tolerate being outside for more than 5 minutes, yep folks, it’s fall!
In honor of fall, I’m jumping on the harlot bandwagon and knitting a poncho. I wasn’t going to do it because I didn’t want to invest a lot of money in something I may not wear often, but I gave in when I found some soft acrylic for super cheap. Yes, acrylic does have it’s place for me. No need to invest a great deal of money in something that may only appear a few times. It’s going pretty quickly because it’s going everywhere with me. See?
With the change in season, I went with a little change on the blog. If you’ve been reading for a while, you’ll notice that it looks a little familiar. This is the quick change. I felt the need for a more simplified look but I didn’t have a lot of time to invest in it, so I went with an old stand-by.
PS Thanks for the help on the french knots! I’ll be trying these out this weekend and I will let you know if I conquer it!
