I know. I KNOW? Fall? Yes, Fall.
It’s not official yet. There’s still nearly a month for that. Even though it’s still hotter than Hades, Fall IS in the air. There’s color creeping into the leaves and I can already feel that certain crispness to the morning air. Fall is right around the corner, like it or not. This means it is invariably time to plan those Fall projects. Here’s what’s on my list:
I have been obsessed with this poncho since I first saw Andrea’s post. I have been searching for the perfect poncho all year (it’s on my bucket list) and this is it! I’m going to take a break from designing projects (soon?) and cast on. I haven’t decided if I am going to splurge on Brooklyn Tweed as called for in the pattern, or substitute with another yarn.
True to my pledge to knit ALL THE DESIGNS from Home & Away* (with which I am absolutely obsessed), I have decided to knit Lesley next. (My Rosemont was such a success, and I have been wearing it TONS.) By the way, the price on Home & Away has dropped to an ALL TIME low of $16.00. That’s a steal. I LOVE LOVE LOVE my copy. Grab one on sale, for sure! I still have to order yarn for Lesley…I hope to get to this during Fall. Otherwise, it will have to shift over to my Winter Bucket List. Oh dear.
I plan to work up a little something with yarn above. It feels very fall-ish, doesn’t it? It’s Plymouth Yarn’s Revel and was gifted to me last Christmas by a bestie. The label claims fingering, but it feels like a LIGHT fingering. Uh oh. We all know how I feel about lace. I have a shawl design in mind.

All the Usuals
Regardless of the season, I always have socks on my needles for those random moments of down time.
