Yay! My Autumn Socks are done. DONE!
The pale green reminds me of the Granny Smith apples on my counter top in the kitchen.
The pale yellow reminds me of the golden leaves clinging on the cottonwood trees in my back yard.
The blue and white speckles remind me of white clouds in the bright blue sky on a crisp, cool Autumn day.
The dark green reminds me of the grass clippings all over my laundry room floor...
my son is a good young man and mowed the yard today.
I LOVE FALL!
Yarn: Schoppel Wollle "Ambiente"
Pattern: "Ribbed Socks for Bigger Feet" by Susan B. Anderson

|Love this yarn!|
A gal I know, Dawn, opened a knit shop in the town where I work.
The shop is called "Knitsense". It's a gorgeous shop. A sun drenched space, neat and tidy, filled with great yarn. So dangerous that I drive by this shop each & every day on my way home when all I want to do is go home, put up my feet, & knit! This sock yarn was my purchase on opening day a few weeks ago. This yarn is knitting up nicely I think... the colors remind me of Autumn.

LINK HERE and see what I mean. The clothes in the catalog are quite stylish. The pattern can be found HERE. I made this hat once before but I added extra to the ribbing the first time around so the bottom of the hat can be folded up to make a nice brim. I like this pattern since it's a great use for worsted weight yarn and it knits up really quickly.
