A Peak in Color
I have been noticing that each year when the leaves change they are not always the same color and definitely not the same time. These two photos were taken only a week apart and they are of my back yard. As you can see the trees are nearly done and the wild bushes are not the golden yellow they were last year. Red foliage seems to be scarce this fall so far but we still have a few more weeks, my fingers are crossed!
I met a friend for lunch yesterday and the drive to and from the neighboring town was just picture perfect. I wish there was a way to drive and take photographs at the same time safely. Someone should invent that. Or maybe I just need to be the passenger :) I drove through rolling countryside and passed many farms as well as a Christmas Tree Farm. The journey was just as nice as the lunch visit. Of course there was knitting involved as well.
Would you believe I had ten rows into a cowl that had 264 stitches and then noticed that the cast on was twisted :/ Seriously, I checked it more than once and who knows how I made that error. So I ripped it out and started over again. This time around I checked four times.
I would love to make a shawl for my aunt for Christmas. Still debating what yarn to use. I am resisting buying more since I have a mini yarn store in my house. I unearthed a sock yarn that I am confident that she would love the colors, I just need to investigate the colorway and make sure it's not overly stripey.
Why is it that July and August go so painfully slow for me and yet in a blink of an eye October is nearing its end? October should be 60 days long and the summer months should only be 15 days long each then it would balance out in my head. But where would the fun be in that?
