Happy Fall! It’s hard to believe the summer is over and it’s well into the fall season. The colorful trees are at their peak here in New England and I am enjoying the last of my flowers blooming in the garden.
I finally finished the wall hanging I was knitting most of the summer. I purchased a wooden rod at a store called 10,000 Villages. It’s a fair trade store in Northampton, MA . Everything in the store is hand crafted by artisans in developing countries.
The wall hanging is knit from a pattern called Olympic Baby Blanket which features a textured tree pattern knit in a variegated purple cotton yarn from my yarn stash.
Now that the weather is cooler I finished up the Christmas stocking I kept putting off all summer. I embroidered some details on the Christmas tree and wreath and it’s ready to go to it’s new home.
