Fall for You

“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.” ~George Eliot

George was a woman after my own heart. But what is it that’s so magical about this time of year? Is it the cider and candy apples suddenly lining the produce section of the grocery store? Is it the crispness of the air, bright as new envelope? Or could it be the fact that one’s knitting gauge becomes suddenly even and easy with the chill in the air, and our palms no longer sweat as they did when we doggedly, dutifully knit and purled our way through Summer’s blights and boils? I think it must be this.

Fall is our annual second chance. As a person destined to be forever in school (learning and teaching and learning some more), I take school-year resolutions a bit more seriously than New Year’s resolutions. There’s something about that change in the weather and the quickening of the senses that makes you get excited about things again — the afternoons when you suddenly notice that it’s getting darker earlier, the snugness of your scarf, or the warmth of a hug when you come in from the cold.

Toward that end, I am very pleased to be announcing my own next new beginning as the Girl in Sheep’s Clothing. I will be opening an etsy shop, due to launch in early November! Sneak peek…
