We have had a very green fall here. But in the last week an explosion of color has happened. Today is a fantastic, sunny fall day with the highs around 16 C for my side of the country. While I was out doing the grocery shopping, I took pictures.

Also, today I was reading Peeriemoot’s blog, Sticking to the Shallows and she posted this tidbit of helpful information in her “Reasons to be Cheerful” (October 27, 2011) blog post. It’s a cast on using a crochet hook. I wish I read this yesterday when I was doing a cable cast on with Ironstone’s changing colors yarn. I kept sticking the needles, accidently, between the fibers of the yarn. Now that the casting on is complete, the knitting is moving along fine. I thought about using a crochet hook … but I persisted with my knitting needles.
