The lake after Labor Day is totally different from the lake during summer. Only a few boats are on the water. Mostly fishermen. The air this weekend definitely held the promise of fall. (Yes, the calendar says fall has arrived, but it takes longer for it to make it to us here in the South.) Instead of carrying an icy drink down with me, I took a mug of hot tea to the pier. And my knitting. How pleasant to sit in the sun on a cooler day and knit as the sun went down.
The most traffic we saw on the lake this weekend were the geese that paddled by, honking for all they were worth. They are loud birds.

This knitting is done now. Finished it soon after we got home. It's for Big Sister. (She's 14 tomorrow!) A cowl she wished for. I'm not sure I'd want to spend this much time knitting and HOPE she would like it. When they're 14, you'd best ask. Fingers crossed I'll get a photo of her wearing it soon.
See? Our trees are still green. We will enjoy the last of these almost-summer days. Fall will find us soon enough.
