Socks for September!
Deep cool tones are in common for September’s birthstone and flower. Deep blue Sapphires and purple Asters are like the earlier evenings we’re starting to see. The constellation for most of this month is Virgo, which is associated with Persephone, a perfect beginning to autumn.
Sapphires are really just blue rubies, which is wild! Well, they’re not all blue, but that’s the colour they’re most commonly associated with. Actually, if they’re pink but not pink enough to be a ruby, then they’re pink sapphires, which are another favourite shade of this stone.
But! Did you know what common flower is also part of the Asteraceae family? The dandelion. It’s true, I’ll wait while you look it up.
Virgo, the constellation until the last week of September, is a little tricky to depict in sock form. Sure, it’s associated with Persephone, but I already looked at pomegranates in January! Hmm. The coming of autumn and cold, the word “virgin” . . . ah-ha! Virgin wool. Perfect for those cool days that are creeping in. B.Ella has a lot of beautiful styles that use virgin wool, but here are three that speak to the season.
I know a lot of folks are looking forward to the season change. Just two scant weeks until the Equinox when it is officially fall!
