1. Autumn, and late October in particular. Breathing the finally cool, dry air is like drinking wine.
2. A crisp, neat cast on, the beginning of a new project, off to a nice start.
3. Knitting lace, in all its glorious, pre-blocked, bumpy silliness. The first pattern I tried with this yarn was all wrong. This one is exactly right, and watching the colors change means I can barely stand to put it down.
