A little color
I'm almost done with a baby surprise jacket. Everyone who has seen it has said, word for word, "That's colorful." It's just leftovers, but they seemed to come together particularly nicely, and I used all the yarn except for about 6 yards of the green. Now to sew the seams, and find buttons. And I might just crochet ties, use up the end of the green yarn, and call it good!
I have heard that autumn in New England is vibrant and vivid, full of sunshine and crisp air and pretty coeds in sweaters. Here's autumn on campus in Oregon City.
You notice that sunshine does not come in to it much. Wind stripped trees and mist get a good showing, though.
But we do get some spooky Halloween-type cats. Pepper's eyes seem to be set on "stoplight" - one flashing green, the other flashing yellow.
