It finally feels like October. After days and days in the 80's, this weather is a relief.
DD#1 has always loved rainy days. I think it is the idea of cozy days with nothing to do but sit inside and read. Of course DD#1 did have to go to school today, but after school she frolicked in the rain while I took photos of her new hat. Now she's off to the couch with a cup of oolong and a good book.
I wish I could tell you what yarn I used, but I don't have a label. I bought it at the Union Square Greenmarket a few weeks ago, on a day that was much too warm to be thinking about wool hats. (No, it's not Morehouse Merinos.) The yarn is merino, dyed with natural dyes; indigo and some sort of yellow to make a soft shade of green. It was still damp from the dye pot when I bought it. Trying to show you the green on a rainy day, under a red umbrella was a bit of a challenge. But I like the mood of the photos enough to sacrifice color accuracy.
