witch hazel

October is here and fall has arrived in full force.
 The air is cool, the witch hazel is turning, and the socks are flying on and off the needles at a wicked fast pace!

This STR rare gem perfectly captured the turning of the leaves from summer green to autumn blaze, and is a perfect choice to commence Socktoberfest!

The pattern is Honey Badger by IGK, one of the Q4 KAL options in the Ravelry STR group.

I love, love, love it!! I added a picot cuff...I couldn't help myself!
Happy Monday!

For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together.
For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad.
