With the cooling of the weather - frosty morns, streets piled unbelievably high with fallen leaves, fat squirrels - there is a sensual wistfulness curling through the wind, mixing with the scent of wood smoke from chimneys, landing visually on all the pumpkins and squash displayed on almost every porchfront.

And although there is still green aplenty, the rapidly denuding branches of trees and shrubs are exposing their gnarled limbs and twigs in beauteous glory. Here in these skeins are those evocative and magical juxtapositions of olive, holly, grass and juniper with brandywine, claret, currant and the drying hips of roses.

If you like to knit your socks on size 2 or 3 needles, this would make a very cozy choice. And whilst I tend towards using 0 or 00 myself, this yarn is really calling out to help us walk in wonder towards the dead of winter, with our feet ensconced in love made visible.
