It’s been a long, hot summer where I live. It started early, and it has been relentlessly hot and sunny since May.
Now, I do like summer very much. I love light cotton skirts, and ice cream, and feeling the warmth of the sun on my face. I love iced coffee, and the beach, and being able to take the dog out for a walk without four layers of protective clothing.
But if truth be told, summer is not my favorite season.
I’m a Fall girl; an Autumn girl. I love cool, sunny days; I love listening to the leaves crunch under my feet as I walk. I love dark rainy nights.
Why? Because I’m a knitter, of course! Cool sunny days are ideal for wearing woollies; dark rainy nights are ideal for staying at home and knitting.
And I love that first snow – because it gives me an opportunity to wear my favorite hat.
