equinox : the time when the sun crosses the plane of the earth's equator, making night and day of approximately equal length all over the earth. (September 23 is the autumnal equinox this year.)
I have been looking forward to the arrival of autumnal weather this year as a break from the heat & humidity that has been hanging over Alabama all summer... and this morning I woke up to clouds, rain, and cool weather! It's the perfect day to unveil my new knitting pattern, named for the autumnal equinox that will occur later this month.
There are some great ides for celebrating the changing season at Rhythm of the Home (I especially love this girls shawl inspired by Laura Ingalls Wilder) and here is a great recipe for acorn squash that I will be using as the season progresses.
I designed these wrist warmers as an accessory to bring your wardrobe into fall or add an extra layer of warmth later this winter. They are knit with sock yarn (I used Panda Soy sock yarn in the color called "Fudge Brownie") so they are sleek enough to layer with your shirts and sweaters without adding too much bulk, and the lace pattern is so pretty peeking out from under your sleeves! Sock yarn also has a little stretch for a great fit.
The pattern can be knit it three sizes and uses fairly simple stitches. It's available in my Etsy shop and on Ravelry, too!
