First, the finished projects. I got the rest of the Jade Sapphire Sylph cowl finished, ends woven in, and blocked. The longest part of the finishing was actually the one thing the pattern didn't call for - grafting the two ends together. But I just couldn't see seaming it, so I altered the pattern a little by using a provisional cast-on, then grafting to finish. I blocked it, and it turned into a lovely little piece that I think I'll use a lot once it cools off (again - more on that).
The weather was, for a while, on a cooling trend, cool enough that I could see Tilly's breath on our morning walk last week; cool enough that the hills are heading towards sepias and reds (that's 7:30 am at one of my two happy trails).
Of course, now that there are new warm things to wear, a Santa Ana has blown through. Humidity is in single digits, and it is warm warm warm. (Except when the sun goes down and it gets cold, since there's no moisture in the air to hold the heat.) (Please think flame retardant thoughts for us - this is fire weather here.)
