|This dress should be good for autumn|
I've been walking most mornings before work, and I really enjoy it. The prospect of the days drawing in doesn't appeal to me, and I'll probably give up following my route through the park on dark mornings and stick to the better-lit, more populated route through the city centre instead. I won't have to do that for a few months, though. For now I'm making the most of the good weather and light mornings. When I started doing the walks it always felt like a real chore and I resented doing it, but now I really do enjoy it, and don't like days when I have to miss my walk because of very heavy rain or a change in my schedule.
I admit, I started my walks through vanity as my weight was creeping upwards. That's an unwanted side effect of an office job. It's coming down again very slowly; I'm a little heavier than I was this time last year, but only by a few pounds. A couple of my favourite tweed skirts were a bit tight last year as it was, but I'm hoping that if I stick to my morning walks I'll be able to wear them again. The walks are changing my shape, giving me a better behind and more toned legs, and my posture has improved so pretty much everything hangs better anyway. (Not sure if my dance class or the walking is responsible for the better posture.)
Weirdly my winter wardrobe seems of an earlier era than my summer one. I have a lot of knee-length or longer skirts, and 60s knits are mostly either too boring or too weird for me to bother making, so much of what I've knitted for myself is from the 1930s to 1950s in style. I slip back in time by a couple of decades in autumn. That said, after the slog of my recently-finished fair isle, I reckon my next project for myself will be something much simpler, so perhaps I should give a little 60s top a go.
Does your style change much with the seasons?
