Ma’s Jumper

……..and here’s what I’ve achieved so far!

20151003-101833.jpgBut I’m afraid there won’t be too much more done in the immediate future; we’re at the beginning of a 30 degree spell. 30 degrees at the beginning of October???? What happened to easing into Summer with a nice mild Spring?? It’s been quite cold up until now and I’m not ready for this leap to heat. Definitely NOT ready; body is not ready; clothes are not ready – how can one choose heat related clothes when it’s been thick jumpers and scarves??

What happened to a nice run of 18’s and 19’s? A gentle progression from long sleeves to short? The transition from jumper to cardigan where cardi can be shed as the day slowly warms?

Thankfully we do have the cooler. I might be able to put that on and still enjoy my knitting!

Have a wonderful weekend…..whatever your weather…….

    Gorgeous jumper yarn and stitching. So you are jumping early into the heat! How sad! My least favorite season is because it symbolizes that summer is coming…..and I really dislike summer! By far, fall has everything……colors, cooler and cooler weather, leaves…and eventually snow. Thank heavens for AC as I totally stay out of the summer heat and am just now sticking my head out to a cooler fall. Couldn’t we just chase fall all over the globe and never have to reach the heat?????

    Meant to say, my least favorite season is spring……

    Lovely even knitting Meredith. Can’t be worn until next year now so put it away.

    I, for one, am not sad to see the last of the cold weather! I am heartily sick of thick jumpers, scarves, gloves and coats! They (!) say we will have five months of Summer, so I guess this is the start of it! Here’s to BBQs, swimming and lazy days!

    Jumper looks good

    Wow that is so pretty. It will be a lovely jumper! We have the reverse weather change. Today I took the kids to the playground 20 degrees and now the wind is whistling around the house with snow flurries.

    What a pretty colour you are using for your Ma’s jumper. Love the patterned welt. Can’t imagine living with such high temperatures for months on end. We’re thoroughly enjoying a beautiful Indian Summer here in the UK before we descend into Winter, a season I dislike.

  8. Hmmm. We leapt from Warm and Sunny to Chill and Foggy, so I sympathise!

    It has suddenly gone here with cold winds and just a few days again it was wonderful sunny mild weather. But the weather will deteriorate from now on…good knitting weather. What you have knitted so far looks great. I am tempted to pick up knitting needles again perhaps a trip to the local wool shop is in order.

    Too hot to even think about knitting here in Sydney town where we also have 30 degrees and I have declared today a ‘too hot to do anything day’. Can’t even go for a swim as the water is still freezing! Oh well, could be worse….

    I am with you Meredithe…..were is our mild spring weather… on one day air con next day….not ready for this heat yet …..

  12. The jumper is looking good! After a week of glorious weather, we now have a cooler misty day, but it is still good for the start of October. You shall just have to get the Golfer to fan you, while feeding you chilled grapes!!
