memories of autumn

Possum/merino blend in russet and Habu wool/stainless steel in deep avocado green

Machine-knit basket stitch with stocking stitch ends
Soft and squishy, yielding and malleable, sculptural and wrappable.

Socks knitted on 2 circulars, with afterthought heels
cushy, soft possum/merino striped scarves for conservative men
a fairytale hood for a faraway child

Christmas gift knitting, thinking warm thoughts in summer
