„Wake Me Up When September Ends“
Summer has come and passed
The innocent can never last
wake me up when September ends
I’ve probably quoted this before but somehow this time of the year always brings this particular Green Day song to mind. After a summer that mostly seems to have left a cold and wet impression we seem to be hitting a mild early autumn period for a change where you can still enjoy the parks, gardens and terraces.
On the one hand I’m kind of sad to see summer go. But as a knitter and crafts person I can’t help looking forward to shorter days and cozy evenings at home. My mind is awhirl with new ideas for knitting projects and other crafts stuff. A trip business trip to Salzburg over the last weekend triggered some interest in traditional alpine/Tyrollean dress. I bought an interesting book about the history of the dirndl and traditional dress and I bought some accompanying sewing and knitting books. Those dirndls are so very pretty and really versatile. I’m a bit sad to live in a region where wearing a dirndl is pretty much out of the question.
