Autumn! My favourite season. Knitting warm sweaters (also for my mp3-player, in fact wearing a miniature beaded wristwarmer to protect the thing from scratches), a big pile of birch logs by the fireplace, apple pie, jazz records, curtains smelling of cigar smoke (nothing better!), badgers under the carpenting shed... No more neighbours knitting their brows over the length of the grass on our lawn and our dubious methods of gardening. Dying flowers are beautiful too.
