November. Although the next few days are reported to be warmer than usual, I know it soon will be time to wear my winter duds. That means removing the summer tees, sandals and sundresses from the closet and installing the heavier skirts, closed toe shoes and of course - my wool sweaters.
In transferring the sweaters from their summer storage boxes to the closet, it occurred to me that maybe I have enough. Six cardigans. Four pullovers. One vest. An eleven day wardrobe right there.
Then I realized I had forgotten to include these latest additions to my fall closet.
I can look at each one and fondly recall the knitting. Even when there were struggles - poorly written patterns, getting the finished to replicate the vision, lace charts that baffled, limping to the finish line in the Olympic challenge - the memories are fond. The feel of quality yarn in the hand, the finished product that fits and flatters and the many, many hours of time well spent.
But I do have to ask myself - is this enough already?
