Last leaves of fall...

The wind really blew hard yesterday and there are leaves everywhere. I'm surprised that some actually hung on this long. I always pick up pretty ones and sometimes paint them or press them. I didn't have time to do a painting, so I played with photoshop. I rather like the result. The colors are so pretty and I'd LOVE to do a sweater (riiight--like I need another project on the needles!). The scarf in the photo is one I purchased at Morning Break a couple of weeks ago. Mindy from 10,000 Villages brought goodies from the store on Grand Avenue. She always brings a basket full of knitted finger puppets, which I love. I use them as "finial gloves" on my spinning wheel lamp in my office. Right now I have a bat on there--the llamas are my favorites. Anyway, the scarf is really fine, lightweight wool and has beautiful colors in it.
I'm going to fix a cup of cocoa and work on my second boot cuff.

I haven't had a chance to look at the Kristin Knits book. Are the boot toppers just for show? I've never seen anything like that before. Cute.

I saw something the other day that reminded me of your cape. Follow this link and let me know what you think--hey that rhymes: http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/VK25CapeAD.html

Yes, the boot toppers are just for show. As soon as I get my (new boots) order from LL Bean, I'll wear them. Great use of leftover yarn, huh?

Thanks for the FALL colors! You know how much I miss them. We have had a warm fall, so not much color on our trees this year. Actually, their are still lots of leaves on the trees!
