It must be autumn

Maybe it is Autumn because I really wanted to knit and I decided on... gloves! I'm using this old pattern. It has a price of 15 cents and the measurements are Imperial but I don't know how old it is. Or even how I got it.
I'm using a sock wool. I've made gloves before and found pure wool just doesn't go the distance. You seem to need some nylon for durability. Unfortunately there wasn't a great colour choice. I was hoping for orange but ended up with this coffee brown which has become strangely appealing. The wool itself is lovely - a New Zealand brand, Waikiwi, - a merino/nylon/alpaca/possum blend.

And, just to prove it must be Autumn - my Camellia has gone mad with blossoms...
