Knitting and nostalgia
Perfect rainy day... taught a private tango lesson this morning, went to lovely brunch with friends, and walked along the ocean enjoying the big storm surf. Home in front of the fire with cats supervising, knitting along on the endless two socks on two circular needles. A couple more inches and I can start decreasing for the toes. I'm not loving this color...it's Regia Crazy Color, but sadly now all I can think is what one of my LYS staff calls it: clown throw-up.
The pear tree has finally surrendered all its pears for the year, and now is gifting us with beautiful colors and patterns in the leaves. Everything glows with the rain these days. I love this time of year, there is something painfully sweet about the dying of the year, the Portuguese word saudade captures it all for me.
