It's starting to feel like fall..

... at least in the mornings. ;-) It's that time of the year when we get to open all our windows in the morning and might need a light sweater, and then by the afternoon we need the AC and might suffer a heatstroke. Alabama weather...
We've had some glorious cool mornings, got some much needed rain and life's good.
Rainy days give me an excuse to stay inside and knit... :-)
Tracey, I will try and get the socks out to you this week! 

Langsam fuehlt es sich hier herbstlich an - zumindest in der Frueh. ;-) Wir koennen frueh alle Fenster weit aufmachen und brauchen teilweise sogar eine duenne Jacke. Nachmittags brauchen wir dann die Klimaanlage und bekommen draussen fast einen Hitzeschlag. Alabama Wetter halt..
Ich geniesse die kuehlen Morgen und auch den Regen den wir hatten.
Regnerische Tagen geben mir eine Ausrede im Haus, auf der Couch, mit Stricknadeln in den Haenden zu verbringen. :-)
 I've actually made quite a bit of progress on my newest knitting project. This will be a "Citron" shawl that I'm knitting with extra fine merino wool. It is incredibly soft and so lightweight!

Seitdem ich dieses Bild gemacht habe, habe ich schon grosse Fortschritte an meinem "Citron" Tuch gemacht. Ich stricke es mit "extra fine" Merino Wolle und es fuehlt sich so weich an und ist federleicht!
                                                                   Rainy evenings

                                                                  Regen am Abend
                                        and beautiful sunsets. What more could one ask for?
                                und wunderschoene Sonnenuntergaenge. Was will man mehr?


  1. They are beautiful Anke, thank you!
    I saw the photo of your Citron and thought the yarn was an apple ;) so very pretty.
    It has turned a little fallish here this week, at least in the mornings and I am loving it!

  2. Wow, gorgeous sunset. We are feeling a little fall like here too, and loving it :)

  3. I could knit a million citrons. I love that pattern so much! Love the color you picked and it's been feeling like fall here in the mornings and summer by noon..
