  • Falling into Fall

    I trust in nature for the stable laws of beauty and utility.
    Spring shall plant and autumn garner to the end of time.
    -Robert Browning.

    I haven't had very much time to knit lately, but when I have I've been enjoying it particularly much. Two projects without deadlines, two projects perfect for cool fall nights.

    The denim aran. Content to take my time with this.And then, distraction. Frost Flowers and Leaves. I had an epiphany. It was clearly meant to be gold. This is a swatch for another project, until the yarn found it's destiny. It's a laceweight thick-and-thin silk/wool blend. I got an enormous cone at the Webs tent sale. And now I know what to do with it.

    Fantastic textures and colors -- enjoy!

    On try #2: I hate it when I can't manage to type the letters that prove I'm a person, not a machine. "I am here, I am here" (the Who's, Horton Hears a . . .)

    Your FF&L is going to be gorgeous. I have some ivory silk lace stashed for that one.

    Everything looks wonderful. You are incredibly talented. Thank you so much for the HP sock swap package! I received it today. I love everything. The socks are totally cool. I had to fight my mom and my kids to keep them. :0) I love the bookmark and the pattern with sock yarn. The colors are so pretty and it is very soft. I will post a pic to my blog and the swap blog this weekend, but just wanted to say thanks right away. Maybe we could meet up for some knitting? I don't live that far away. Thanks again!

    Beautiful! Miss you. Planning to call you soon, but then the grading (and the triplets) just get in the way.

    Love the denim aran. I don't know why moss stitch gets me so high. I should look into that.

    I think the gold looks spectacular! That yarn has such a rich quality. The denim aran is looking lovely too. Love the cables!
