Yarn Along, Fall, and a Shawl

 *Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs.  I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading?

 Fall has arrived and I have decorated in full force.  I blogged about it here.  over the weekend. I have never gone so overboard with Fall before. The bug just bit me and off I went!  Don't you love those gourds below?

Oh!  The knitting.  Yes, well that is the shawl from here.  Our family picture day is fast approaching and I want to have this complete. By the time this post I will have finished the last repeat and begun the edging.  I love Mad Tosh yarn and this is not disappointing.  Chicory is the colorway.

My reading is on hold for a bit, but I thought I might share a little more Fall décor.

  This area was excavated when we laid the stone path and for a year it has been left bare.  I really want more stone there, so hopefully in the spring we can tackle that.

I love this pumpkin!  I have never seen one striped like this.  It is called a Cinderella Pumpkin!

This one captured my attention because of the stem.  It looked like it had just been plucked from the vine.

 A few garden mums that were added. They are perennial here.

And lastly,  I filled my wire basket with mums, ferns and sweet potato vine.

Thanks, Ginny for the link up!  It is always the highlight of my blogging week!


  1. I love all your fall decorating and one of these days I'm going to let myself indulge in some Madelinetosh - I love that colorway, Chicory!

  2. Your mums and pumpkins are really pretty.

  3. I love your fall decorations!! I have some in my classroom, and my students don't know what to make of my gourds :)

    1. Oh I wish I were still in the classroom! Sounds like time for a field trip!

  4. I love the subtleties in the yarn colors. Beautiful decorating!
