Fall


We're having a lovely fall. Granted much of mine has been spent in a darkened room looking at images on a computer screen, seeing high summer on the high seas!

Step outside and all is changing.... red, yellow, and gold with brilliant blue skies. We took a trek to the bog behind our house to seek out ingredients for dinner. Lucky rewards: chanterelles, though not as plentiful as last year, and cranberries! Many different speckled colors, hard not to eat them all right on the spot.

The colors sort of just soak in. I find myself reaching for the deep maroon and the mustard yarn, with just a speck of brilliant green...future fun!

Fantastic photos. I was thrilled when I saw the IK Holiday Gifts cover yesterday! I was sort of beaming as if I could say "Hey, I know her"! Congratulations.

I was at my LYS this week choosing fleece tops for spinning and had a whole red scheme planned out. Instead I came home with a bag of greens and browns and oranges. Proper autumn colours :)

love, love, LOVE autumn colors. Ever since I moved to a locale where there *are* fall colors, when they begin to change, I always feel an overwhelming urge to collect all the colors somehow -- knitting and quilting usually come to mind, since I am quite sure that my lackluster photography skills just won't do the trick.
Glad I found your blog (via the olive pattern on WhipUp). I'll be back for sure!

I am not sure how I landed here on your blog, but I am glad that I did. You have so many lovely things to see here!

I can't wait to see what you spin magnusmog! And thanks for visiting froghair and randi! I didn't even know the olive was on whip up! I'm flattered! I'm planning eyeballs for Halloween.
