Ok, so it's not New England but the yellowing leaves of the Aspens are a pretty sight to see and it's just a great time of year to get outside and enjoy nature:
With the arrival of cooler weather I'm feeling the need to knit something warm for the winter and I came across this pattern called the Chalice Pullover and yarn in my stash:
I bought this a few years ago when I was at The New York Sheep and Wool Show in Rhinebeck which is held in October. Most of this show is held outdoors or in unheated barns and it happened to be a very damp and cold weekend when I was there. Carodan Farms had a stall in one of the barns filled with their own natural, lanolin scented yarns and it was most appealing. It's my version of vanilla sock knitting and I hope to have this done quickly. It's an easy project and the lanolin feels great on my hands.
I'm just about halfway done with my Modular Afghan; it's hard to believe that this is knit in just one colorway of Noro's Taiyo:
Have a great week everybody!
