Knitting for Autumn


I've been on a real leaf-making kick, but yesterday I decided to switch gears and knit up a Milo vest for Dominic. This tweedy blue is quite lovely--it's called Seasalter. Gregory shall get a rust-colored vest ("Cardinal"), and Michael an asparagus green (aptly, "Asparagus"). (I am hoping there is enough green leftover to knit a leaf for his blanket, of course. :) ) All my boys shall have vests to layer in when the weather takes a turn towards cold.

And just some light reading for now. My "to-read" list keeps getting longer and longer, books that I must either buy or find at the library (probably in e-book form as our local library doesn't have a good adult selection at all ... I miss our old library very much). But then I remembered I had this book sitting in the stack on the end table. I am enjoying it.

Linking up with Ginny!

  2. I love when I find books that I forgot I had. The yarn you chose will make a great Milo vest. They are so cute!

    I LOVE that blue tweed. It is such a pretty, yet masculine, color. Your son will look wonderful in it!

  6. Aren't vests the best?! My girls will wear theirs from early autumn all through winter and spring. The colour and texture of your yarn look lovely!
