It's autumn for sure. We had a freeze last week so the tomatoes, basils, and other tender plants are done -- hardier ones like mums and chard and parsley prevail. Truthfully, it was a relief to let the tomatoes go toward the light, there was really very little hope. Our temperatures will be close to 80 degrees today so it's warmer outside than it is in the house, it feels so good out there.
I've been knitting a lot lately -- on the lady sweater, some hexipuffs, and yesterday another acorn with smaller needles and finer yarn. Found a few real acorns, too -- felt sort of bad taking them because they're a food source for squirrels, but not bad enough to stop me.
A mandala cloth of some sort is in the works on a woven background. It sort of looks like a dream-catcher at this point, but that's not really what I'm envisioning. But who knows.
I'm organizing cloth and yarn -- that means a few more short lengths of yarn leftovers were added to the minestrone project. Straight stockinette on straight needles. This is the kind of knitting that you can walk through the house to let the dogs in or out while you're knitting because there's no ball of yarn, just a length trailing behind you. I mention this because I've seen amazing old photos of people knitting socks and such while they're standing or walking, pretty amazing.
Today is a waxing moonday in the sign of Scorpio. Quiet focus on inner matters is Scorpio energy. Building, growing and working toward completion are waxing moon energies. Things are happening on all levels so why not focus on the best-case scenario.
Harmony might be a good word for today.
