I know many of you have moved onto the winter holidays but around here fall has just begun.
My trees are finally showing some color and the weather has been just about perfect for sweaters and warm wool socks. I am not giving up on November just yet. These are the best days of fall and I'm going to take advantage of every pumpkin spiced minute. Winter can wait.
My one goal this fall was to get this ancient project finished. It's hard to tell what it looks like outside. The sun shone right through it.
Look familiar now? It's that big ball of brown yarn barf I have been working on every autumn since 2008. That's nine years. Yikes.
I would have been done last year but I decided it needed this fancy edging. It was a pain but so worth it.
The yarn is pretty dreadful. It's discontinued Shadow in the Deep Woods colorway from Knit Picks and the colors pooled terribly. The pattern, which was featured in a Knit Picks catalog, is called Seasons of Mists and Mellow Fruitfulness of all things. All in all, icky yarn and terrible name aside, it's still a pretty thing and I am soooo happy it's done, done, done.
And.....thanks to everyone who signed up for the Holiday giveaway. If you haven't signed up yet, there is still plenty of soap to go around. I'll be finishing up the wrapping and packing this week and hopefully be mailing them out the first week of December. Be watching your Rav mail in case I need to get in touch. Thanks again!
