As Summer leans toward Autumn, and the greenery of the meadows, mountains and valleys, turn into hues of rusts and reds, we tend to reflect. The days shorten and evenings lengthen. We take on the ‘gathering’, like the animals of the woodlands.

We freshen our garden beds, making them ready for the cold months ahead. We rake and clean the remnants of leaves, pine cones, grasses, and lush foliage, that has given up its summer beauty.

And nothing could be eloquent than to share in the harvest with knitting “GATHERING AUTUMN’S SPLENDOR”. This biased scarf/“thingie” is simple in design, the amazing depth of color changes in the yarn add incredible detailed texture, with optional beading for some glitter.

What a lovely time of year, as one season gives way to another.

We can cherish the good times, with the lovely brilliant colors of Fall. The array of color changes in the yarn, lends to delight and is a spectrum rarely seen except by the human eye.

The scarf/’thingie’ is a long drape and flow of colors, just like the mountains and valleys. Each day paints new scenery and knitting this beauty adds to that color palette. As outdoor activities wind down, you’ll have abundant beauty all around, to keep warm. A cup of cider or hot cocoa only adds to the ambiance.

~Stay warm my friends~
