Colors of Fall

Today it is finally Fall! We have been sweltering around here, with mid to upper 80's (and no rain----I know you're sick of me saying that). Tonight it is supposed to go down into the 40's and I love, love, love it. Fall is my favorite time of year. I love the colors, wearing wool sweaters and socks, getting to have a fire in the fireplace again, the smell of the leaves, cooking chili and warm soups-----all of it. Yesterday as I was hanging these skeins outside to dry, I noticed that they were all my favorite colors.....and the colors of Fall. Most of our trees are just turning brown and dropping their leaves early, so I may have to put these skeins back out on the line occasionally to substitute for colorful leaves.

Our little Wednesday knitting group is having an impromptu knit-along. We all fell in love with this Debbie Bliss pattern in her new Luxury Collection book. It is the "Julie" cardigan and it's a classic. Everyone else is making it in Debbie Bliss Donegal Luxury Tweed, but I'm using just plain Donegal Aran Tweed (still working from the stash accumulated during my yarn store days). I'm using color number 281114, which can only be described as a greenish-brownish-goldish tweed that I love. This sweater will be a great throw-on-over-anything kind of thing.

Hope wherever you are, you're going to have a great Fall weekend.

  1. Oh, I just love those colors. It doesn't matter to me if it is fall or spring. I am a fall color girl. You create such lovely things.
    Have a wonderful weekend. I may need to go and gather my wood for the morning to keep us warm.
    Have a wonderful weekend.
