|A golden carpet|
I am still hoping for a little red and orange to be added to the color scheme, but that usually doesn't happen until we get a frost. Which isn't going to come any time soon. The rain has also brought out a lot of mushrooms.

|This one is very cool|
We've also had some lovely end of the season blooms.
All of this nature excitement hasn't deterred me from fiber. I made a sweet little slouch hat in a lace pattern out of a very soft gray alpaca blend. Then, being in the lace mode, designed and knit a pair of fingerless gloves using a pattern from an old treasury of stitches. As we are gearing up for Town Wide Yard Sale next weekend, I felt that a few extra things on hand would not be a bad idea. Gloria has been under the weather lately and not able to do a lot of physical activity, which, while not a good thing, has given her lots of time to spin and knit, so we should have a good showing. Thankfully she is on the mend and feeling better. Her crias, born this summer, are all getting big.

Soon: frosts, cold nights, woodstoves, planting bulbs and moving plants. And much spinning, weaving, and knitting. I love the fall!
