Fall Foliage

Have you been able to enjoy fall colors in your neck of the woods?  Here are some photos from last weekend when Mr. P and I visited Smuggler's Notch and Mt. Mansfield in Stowe last weekend.  We count our lucky stars that these types of places are so close we can visit them on a Sunday afternoon!


Thanks for indulging me in numerous photos!
What are your favorite fall colors?  Me...the tree across the street that was simultaneously green, red, orange.

Recent Knits

These are some recent completed knits.  The scarf was started in July when Dale and I were living at the summer camp and all my other yarn was in storage.  I found a yarn shop in Rutland and this pattern online--it was really fun to knit!  The lace came out so pretty, but if I were to make it again, I would definitely use at least a skein and a half.  This scarf is almost a tad too short. 

This second pattern was one that I picked up at the Vogue Knitting Conference I attended in NYC last winter.  The yarn is a soft alpaca and I couldn't resist rubbing it against my face while I was working.  It is multi-purpose in that you can wear it as both a cowl and a head covering.  I think it will be especially useful here in VT this winter! 

Has the cold weather got you knitting up anything lately?  Which of the above would you prefer to don?

Thanks to all who came out yesterday to the Vermont Apple Festival!  It was fun to meet so many new people and chat about craftiness.  I hope that you were all able to grab some apple goodness and celebrate the beautiful fall day.  Stop by the blog again soon for some recent project pictures!
