Fall Colors

Although I am way past school age, every Fall I still get that "shopping for school clothes" excitement. I love the rich, dark colors of Fall. I just love the way the yarns look on the shelf. The picture above is of old favorites Silk Garden and Kureyon by Noro. As always, Noro outdid themselves with colors in interesting, wonderful combinations this season. Below I have pictured "The Chunkies"-- Twinkle's Soft Chunky (new for us!) and Gedifra's Highland Alpaca. Chunky knits are huge for Fall. There are books that feature both yarns with very fashion-foward patterns. The patterns using chunky yarns have become much more interesting than seasons past. Once again, the only problem is how to decide on a manageable number of projects to work on!
