The crab apples are past their peak now, and dropping off the tree, which means the deer are very happy. The apples aren't good eating any more- too mushy. What's left (on the tree and off) will serve well for the wildlife in the area.
The soybean fields are beginning to dry down.
The pods are full, and starting to dry as well.
The cottonwood trees are starting to turn. We don't get much fall red or orange this far north, but we get beautiful, electric yellow.
And I am working on another sample hat for my All Day Fair Isle Class (which I am teaching at NCFF and SAFF- links to the right). This is the adult size sample (we're knitting the toddler size in the class, but the pattern for this size will be included in the handout). (Yarn: the white is Cascade 220, the striping is from Yarn Treehouse, size 5 needles).
And best of all- today is the first fall meeting of Knitters Etc., in Aberdeen. It'll be wonderful to see all my knitting friends and catch up on what everyone did on their summer vacation.
