September has come and gone. And while much of the northern hemisphere is starting to cool and settle into autumn, my area of the US was still hot as blazes until a couple days ago. We’ve finally reached Pleasant Summer Temperatures so it’s very warm, but not unbearably so. The very early mornings are chilly enough to maybe need a sweatshirt, but it’s not handknits weather by a long shot.

I managed to spend a little time crafting this month—my knitting desire was very sporadic and mostly MIA all month. I worked on another garter strip for the blanket I mentioned last month, which is a distraction from other knitting I could do. But if I’m really honest, it’s about as complicated of a knit as my brain can handle at the moment. It’s nice to see these older handspun yarns go down in amount or get fully used up as I work. It will clear a nice amount of room and be one less thing I’ll consider destashing to make my craft stash fit in the area I’ve assigned to it.


This year, I’ve decided to stick with the same knitting goal I’ve had since this decade started: knit something every month. That’s it. Yes. Knitting happened.

What about you, kitten?  Is it cooling down where you are—or warming up if you’re in the global south? Are you starting to do seasonally appropriate activities? Maybe enjoying your weather with outdoor time? Did you work on anything you’re excited about? Maybe you read something you’d like to recommend?

Take care of yourselves and each other.
