Falling for Fall
New Model
For my October creation (!) I needed a new model. My husband's done it once (in Chile)Now it's the time .... again.
 
I made a warm winter scarf, and 'who's going to wear it?' is still being decided. The weather, even at the end of October in Toronto, is not right for this kind of scarf, but in knitting you've got to plan ahead!! :-) So, he's Andrey sweating in alpaca....

Shop 
This beautiful yarn was bought in Nova Scotia, Halifax - in The Loop - modern fiber craft shop.
 
I bought 3 skeins of 3 colors.
The yarn is called Alpaca 33 :-)

Fabulous Fibers
 
There are so many beautiful fibers for cool temperatures: mohair is one of them
for sure - comforting, soft
and warm.

Fall Colors
Every time October gives a party, we are happy to attend the colorful leaves ball ... and we are falling for fall again. Happy falling... :-)
                 
October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came -
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.
~George Cooper, "October's Party"
