First Day Of Fall

Here’s the Last Rose of Summer:

but now it’s fall as of today. Though we had unseasonably cold weather for a day or two earlier this month, this weekend was like summer — nice summer weather, rather than the humid heat that’s most of summer here.

I knit a hat for a friend’s son whose pumpkin hat had disappeared, to his sorrow. Can’t have a pumpkin hat deficiency, that’s not allowed. I had some more scrumptiously soft alpaca/merino/silk from KnitPicks and modified a baby hat pattern:

He seemed to like it, given that it immediately went onto his head, despite the summery day.

And he’s off!

And in more autumnal news, I received this lovely fall yarn in the mail:

Yarn Pirate merino/tencel blend in colorway “Butternut”.  Can you see the pale green?  It’s very lovely.

These are the flowers that always say “Fall” to me. When I was a kid, I would walk to school past a house that had long rows of hosta, and in September, there seemed like miles of these flowers.
