autumn in nature and knitting

This fall moved so fast that I've hardly had a chance to catch my breath.  I still don't have time for the full catch-up, but here's a whirlwind tour of colors and textures ...

Late September.  Damp chill. Raindrops on juniper.  Wet ivy leaves around a weathered wooden fence.  Cabled baby vest in blue-green wool.

October.  Crisp air. Fall colors. Maple leaves. Baby sweater being worked in bright red wool.

November.  Bleak sky. Bare branches.  Lace shawl in heathered gray alpaca.
