Side note: I started writing this post last week when it actually did feel like Fall. This week has taken a summery turn but I’m sure it will cool down eventually!
It’s beginning to get chilly here in Minnesota. I love this time of year because I can start wearing sweaters and scarves. The trees are just starting to change to brilliant reds and yellows and walks around the neighborhood don’t end with me being a sweaty mess. This time of year I enjoy a hot cup of tea in the evening instead of a cool glass of lemonade and leaving the window cracked open at night means I can snuggle under the heavy comforter again. Ah, it is a short but wonderful time of year. As someone said, “Autumn is the year’s last loveliest smile.” I couldn’t agree more.
And speaking of sweaters…Dieter was in desperate need of a new sweater for Fall. I might be exaggerating when I say “desperate” but the change in weather is a nice excuse to buy some fun yarn and knit something up. My favorite part of it is the three different buttons I used. I didn’t feel like going out and buying matching buttons so I made due and really like how it turned out.
Here’s the pattern. I heart free patterns and really they are the only thing I use.
