Vandal Fall

I loooooved fall in Moscow. There were football games, the air was crisp, and the leaves! Oooooh the leaves. They were fantastico! Color therapy everywhere I went! I just wanted to hug the trees! I took this picure on one of our (Jess and Luke) first outings to the arboretum. I keep it on display by my bed,and it isnspired me to ask for this handyed yarn from Lynda at Keep Me in Stitches in McCall.
I was holding out for the perfect pattern when I came across the foliage pattern on Ravelry. Ding ding ding ding ding! An alarm went off in my head an I did the little giddy dance. PERFECT!
This is how it turned out. I love it.
Youll have to pardon my dishevled look. I had to share my masterpiece with the world. No time to get ready for the day! Haha. Mom took this picture of me while on our morning walk!

I love the fall colors too, Jess! When I lived in Colorado we would go on "color rides" that time of year and enjoy God's creation. That yarn is perfect to represent the fall colors. You're so talented!

Well the leaves never stood a chance this year, they went from green to dead and on the ground! most of them still green, that is what a week of 10 degree nights will do to the colors of fall.
