Beautiful Day

just one more sleeve
the last tree with leaves outside my window
4 out of 6 orchids are spiking, the flowers are coming!

It's an absolutely perfect autumnal day.
The sun is bright and a chilly breeze makes it perfect for a walk in the woods.
Alas, I must go into work soon.

I should be knitting Holiday presents but I'm so close to finishing this sweater.
My gauge was a bit off and a smaller size would have been more appropriate
but it's Debbie Bliss Cashmerino and very soft.
It will be great to just bum around in.


  1. Ooh, that jersey (jumper? sweater? :) looks deliciously soft and warm. It will be perfect for the fast approaching winter! And there's nothing quite like a sunny autumn day, is there? The leaves ablaze against a blue sky... always breathtaking!

  2. a beautiful light and through the branches a hillside ablaze?
    enjoy your cozy sweater and your brand new blooms, dear j!


  3. i can see the softness of your swearter. i like
    the idea of hand knitting chrismas gift for love one,
    and such thoughtful tradition is the best present
    one can have.
    bright sun is here this morning. it's going to be
    cheerful day..
