I’ve mentioned before how excited I am for the arrival of my first “real” Fall. It’s really starting to hit up here. Any tree that isn’t an evergreen is turning some shade of yellow-green, gold, orange, or red. My parents were in town this past weekend for a visit, and we got to see some of this Fall business up close.
(I think the red in that last photo comes from an outbreak of Mountain pine beetles that are attacking the pines, but I’m not sure.)
Is it any wonder, then, that I immediately had to grab up that gorgeous gold colored Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride Worsted I bought at the KnitWear Extravaganza and started knitting it up into a scarf?
I got about that far before I realized that I was using the wrong size needles, so I started over again.
Much better. See?
The stitches are easier to work with and I like the length of the rows. I’ve started drafting up the pattern and sent it to a couple of gals for test-knitting. I’m hoping to have a complete pattern posted here on the blog by the end of the month, so stay tuned!
