november post 2: postcard to autumn

Dear Autumn, 
I appreciate your breezes, and the red leaves on Maple trees.  But we both know I am saddened by your arrival. You bring increasing  darkness, cold mornings and way too much pumpkin flavor in everything.
However, I am writing to thank you for this beautiful inner seed globe of a flower while in Maine in early September. I've decided to embrace the season-and the coming winter- in the spirit of hygge
Yours,
GZ

The yarn is Starcroft Nash Light in Mussel Shell. I love love love it and have almost a sweater's worth. When I get the contrast yarn,something natural/grayish,like Driftwood, I will knit a colorwork yoke sweater in it. My hygge will be enhanced.

I just read about hygge and I think it's a fascinating and awesome practice. Beautiful photo, Gale.

Excellent use of hygge! I want so badly to live where hygge is a daily practice! Your photo is stunning and that yarn is gorgeous! And, as always, I appreciate your posts for bringing a new view to my world!

Oh, I love that color. Why don't I have that? We still haven't had a frost here. Scary.

I, too, want to live where hygge is just . . . everyday practice. That is such lovely yarn -- and perfect with that globe flower.
