hearty last days of summer… the sequel ♥
Our last days of summer ended on a particularly sun-shiny note after an unexpected September snow storm, which left us feeling more like fall. The thermometer bounced back after that, soaring just shy of 30ºC/86º F until cooling off again today. But anything can happen when it comes to weather! And it could have been worse, after all. It could have felt like winter!!!
Just a few hours south in Calgary, it indeed looked and felt like winter. The white stuff fell heavy, over there. And caused much havoc with snowbanks, snapped tree branches and power outages 😦 Fortunately for us, the snow was a mere healthy dusting and shovels stayed stored in the garage. We swapped summer wear for sweaters and got the furnace all fired-up to chase the chill out of the house… But then summer came back… just like “summer the sequel” 🙂
Seizing the moment, I grabbed the camera with a few handknit props and headed outside for another “nutty knitting neighbour” backyard photo shoot! The scene of our leafy green tree foliage and tall, golden grass with autumn-coloured field in the background was begging to be yarn bombed! So out came the lawn mower, a string of hearty garland and my own little birdie/floral prototypes. Don’t you just love the ethereal effect of the yarn tails alongside the tall, golden grass? … swaying gently in the pre-autumn breeze 🙂
Coming up, I’ll be using these hearts to make a heart garland! Would you like to knit your own heart garland for Christmas, Valentines, birthdays, or any occasion? You can get a head start, by knitting a hearty handful of Sweetie♥KNIT♥Hearts and/or Bramble♥tini Hearts in your choice of colour and needle size. Use FELTABLE WOOL only, leaving extra-long tails of approximately 45 cms/18 inches. I’ll be back soon with the next step.
Wishing you a hearty harvest for fall ♥ Jackie
