Happy 11/11/11!

It's rainy and chilly here, but if you happen to be out tonight and the sky is clear, be sure and look at the moon. It was so pretty last night, and Dick took this photo the night before.

We just got back from our daily walk. Leaves were raining down and
making huge piles in the middle of the streets and along the curbs. We were glad to have taken these photos earlier in the week because these trees look very different today. (That tall skinny tree in the second picture is a ginko. They turn the prettiest yellow each fall.)


I thought these were the last two purple hats, but then I found some leftovers from one of Sophia's sweaters, so I'll probably make a couple more. I am, however, very tired of lavender yarn! Can you see how little was left from the original skein?

Hope you've had a nice Veteran's Day. Many thanks to those who have served!

Really pretty pictures...it is pretty cool here right now...supposed to rain tonight and all weekend...we'll see. I really like the rain so I don't mind. I raked piles and piles of leaves myself this week...I don't mind...it's good exercise. I like that Ginko tree...I don't know if they have them here.

Beautiful trees. It's really been a pretty fall, but with the high winds we had today on Whidbey, there may not be many left. Spent the day warm and inside!

What a beautiful variety of trees. I love the purple fringe on the one hat, really like them both, especially the color.

What beautiful trees! And isn't it fun to type 11.11.11 :-) The little hats are a lovely purple and so sweet!

Wow! Lovely pictures Judy! What are the dark orange trees/bushes in your yard? Lovely color! The moon was pretty last night. It was cool, but mild here so we built a fire in our fire pit and sat outside for a while before dinner. I sure wish I could knit like that. What color will you work with next?

Such pretty pictures! We took the telescope out a few nights ago to look at the moon and Jupiter. It was pretty chilly, but worth it. Love all the little lavender hats.

Oh, I did see the gorgeous moon rising on Friday night - but without an angle to get a photo - so huge and orange, and by the time I got home it was up and looking quite normal. Speaking of being tired of lavender, have you tried to dye/stain any thread, lace, linen with those beauty berries?

Hi! Thanks for stopping by my store blog and leaving a comment. I love your idea of placing stitch markers between lace repeats. Thanks for the advice. I am on Ravelry. You can find me under the username, woolysock.

Love the pictures.
