Goodbye Summer Hello Autumn

It's been busy around here, celebrating the change of seasons with knitting, baking, sailing, and such.

I'm getting so close to the end of my EZ sweater, but ~~ I'm out of my Colinette yarn. I'm holding together one strand of Colinette Parisienne with one strand of black alpaca. My plan for this sweater is to follow EZ's instructions for a seamless raglan sweater. Although, I'm going to mix things up a bit and leave the front left raglan seam open and then add buttons of some sort to close it (so the neck will have a diagonal opening down the left side. I also want to make cowl neck ~ something that will be cozy in the fall when I wear this sweater under my puffy vest. So, until I get my hands on more Colinette, I leave you with this::

Mt yarn finally arrived from Knitpicks, and I'm almost done with one of the two pinwheel sweaters for new babes::

And I have no picture yet, but I spent the morning at the laundry mat knitting up a little coffee cozy while doing the wash.

We spent yesterday, the last day of summer, sailing with everyone else on the coast! The waters and islands were busy, but we had a great time sailing from Salem down to Boston Harbor and back up. We made a quick stop at George's Island (in the Harbor) and spent the rest of the day on the boat. If you're in Boston and you have a day to spare, you should definitely catch a ferry out to one of the harbor islands. They're amazing little places to relax and picnic. Unfortunately I couldn't take my camera on the dingy from the sailboat to the island, so I don't have any pictures to share. Although, here are some from yesterday.

And finally, happy first day of fall!! I'm off to bake something with apples and I'll leave you with these fall berries::
