I Love Fall

This has to be my favorite time of year. I love when the leaves change, the occasional fog in the morning, the slight chill in the air on a sunny day. Fall here in Seattle for me gears me up for all of the holidays to come. Don't get me wrong I also love when Spring warms up and changes to a hot Summer. There is nothing like fall though. Of course in Seattle we do have more rainy fall days than most other cities, however, I use this as an opportunity to stay cozy inside and cook yummy comfort food and work on projects!

Paul had requested another hat for the winter. I picked up some Malabrigo Worsted at Little Knits last Saturday and knit him up a Seahawks colored hat. I used Azul Profondo and the Apple Green. Paul loves photo shoots!

Baby hats are also a quick and satisfying project for a rainy day.

I finished this hat the day before yesterday. I stopped in my local LYS and they had a cute hat knit up like this on display but using another similar style yarn. This is King Cole Splash DK. Very cute.

This hat I started and worked on and almost finished last week while at Children's Hospital getting some tests done on Riley's kidneys. She aced by the way! Her surgery in January was a complete success. Her left kidney is functioning so well and has lost just about all of the extra fluid it was retaining from the uriter blockage. The result...we won't need another check up for a year and then it will only be an ultrasound!

Just another hat. Knit during my rainy days.
