out and about

I cannot endure to waste anything as precious
as autumn sunshine by staying in the house.
So I spend almost all the daylight hours in the open air.
~ Nathaniel Hawthorne 

Much like Mr. Hawthorne, I'm taking advantage of the beautiful autumn days
here in the Pacific Northwest.
The rains are here, so when it is dry I'm out and about.
Even when it isn't dry, you may catch me in the leaves.

autumn rainbow

Is this colorway gorgeous, or what?

It's 'Autumn Rainbow' from Lorajean of Knitted Wit fame!
This is her new Victory Sock yarn base.

And because I couldn't decide which sock pattern to do - 
I'm doing both Toasty Twist and Mad Color Weave
in the same sock.
It's how I roll.

To say I love this yarn is an understatement.
A big understatement.

My heart leaps up when I behold
A rainbow in the sky.
~William Wordsworth
