Ah, autumn...

It's all kinds of pumpkin-y around here. My favorite time of year.

The latte is pumpkin something-or-other. The muffin is cinnamon. The socks are Retro Rib using Knit Picks Stroll in Hearth Multi (discontinued, but lovely still!)

I'm planning on some ambitious spinning and knitting for the next few months. I'm glad the weather is starting to cooperate. I LOVE being cold. I love layers. I love flannel (which I have very little of right now. I need to fix that.) I love jeans and wooly socks. I love mitts and scarves and brisk breezes. 

This time of year we take a little trip up the mountain and check out the aspen trees. This year, the fire got most of our favorite groves- and I'm avoiding the effects of the fire so I can't even bear to go see what is left. Mark shows me photos, thinking he is reassuring me- but my heart just drops. It hurts to think about it even. 

So... I'll leave you with a pretty pic, taken 2 years ago. 

And some yarn I made then too. I pulled it out last night and it is next in line to become something awesome. 
It is Spunky Eclectic BFL- an old club colorway called Rolling Hills. I managed 310 yards of 2 ply. It was spindle spun and one of the first yarns I ever made. There is something so comforting in that- and it will help, I think.

Thank you, Shayla for destashing it all those years ago!

Any thoughts on what it should be?
