Signs of fall

The only project on my needles right now is a triangle shawl.  I am using a cold water bundle from Great Adirondack (eight different skeins of semi-novelty yarns, dyed in coordinating colors).  I had brought it home last winter to knit into a sweater, but it quickly became one of those great ideas gone wrong.  I found it in a bag last week and decided to tear it apart and give it another go...and now I'm having fun.  I am getting really good at absolving myself of guilt about unfinished projects; tearing them up is often more fun than it was to start them.  Life is too short for unhappy knitting projects!

Two signs of fall, and I'm beyond joy: Trainpic
I noticed a small clump of yellow up on the mountain above us on my way home last night and this morning, I could see my breath in the air when I let the dog out.  Hallelujah!  It reminded me of our trip on the Cumbres and Toltec Railway last fall, just before Wool Festival.  I dug up a couple of photos to get the fall color thing going for those of you who live where it might come later (or not at all).  If you're in the area during summer or fall, I encourage you all to take this train ride.  It is awesome...and the train is always in danger of being packed away forever because of low state every dollar we spend with them matters.

I'm off to work now, and then tomorrow to Santa Fe for the wedding weekend.  I'll be back here next week.  I hope you all have a great weekend!  ---Martie
