Beautiful Knitting

Where Mt.Mom knits, crochets, designs, and seeks Beauty as food for the soul.

My Yard, as Autumn Approaches

Posted by mtmom on September 21, 2010

Not much knitting news.  Progressing on charity scarf and hat, and on Robert’s forest heather kilt hose — just the cuffs remain — yay!  And I’ve had 2 possible deadlines evaporate, relieving a sense of impending overwhelm:  CastOn did not accept my article proposal, and Sock Madness has more patterns than they’ll need for this year already — relief!  (Eventhough both things would have been good. . . .)

I want to talk about the signs of the changing season here at 7000 feet in Flagstaff.

A time of seeds

Thistle-down. Goldfinches line their nest with it.

Dandelion. Gotta admit, they're pretty.

Mexican Hat? Maroon and yellow petals, and cone of seeds afterwards.

And a time of colors (the sumac always turns first, then, next month, the aspens!)
