Today, after a delay of a month or two, fall kicked in and so it’s been raining non-stop since yesterday evening and I must say I’m loving it. When I was younger I used to hate fall and winter because of the cold and the rain and I couldn’t really play outside much, but nowadays I don’t really mind. I’ve started to see the other side of these seasons. Or maybe it’s because I don’t cycle to school anymore and am ‘doomed’ to spend every day in front of my computer hehe.
Rain is cozy, a walk in the woods in fall is wonderfull, last winter was my alltime favorite winter in Holland. It was freakin cold, (-18C) which has become rather unnatural, and everything was frozen. It was like walking in the winter wonderland of Narnia and I felt like a little fairy pricess (teehee). We went ice skating (tho I totally suck) and had a blast. So I guess this is how my views on winter and fall changed over the years 🙂
So back to the story.. I seem to have drifted off (again). Until yesterday the sun was shining and the weather was nice, cozy and warmish, but since today it’s really fall, so it rains and the wind blows and its cold and well.. it’s fall. So I might just be in time finishing Commelina! I already told you I ordered a blocking kit from Wolhemel so I’m hoping it’ll arrive in the end of this week and then I should be able to was and block it by then 🙂
In order to protect my knits from the cats I have to roll everything up in a ball and hide the needles, and as you can see it’s become a nice package already 🙂
I ‘borrowed’ my kittens’ scratching pole to take this shot 🙂 I seriously can’t wait for this shawl to be finished 😀
