I am pleased to report that more brick laying, and less drilling and removal of old bricks and mortar, seems to be today's building project. I can hear myself think.
As Halloween nears, I thought I'd share with you all some pictures of gourds and pumpkins that are now available at the Union Square farmers market. What bounty!
It's also a good time of the year to select carrots.
Sunlit Swiss chard has got a very special colorful glow that I would like to be able to capture in a painting, or adopt in my knitting colors.
The cauliflowers also appear in various hues that make for eye-catching displays. I have not yet bought any chard or cauliflower, but am definitely warming to the notion.
However, perchance you all can see how these vegetables have influenced the cowl I have been knitting for myself.
If, like me, you do like to play around with colors, and have gathered together a bunch of slightly similar, slightly different yarn colors, hours can fly by as loop goes over loop.
These chevron stripes are shown sideways in these photographs, which was the direction they took in the finished tubular cowl.
Here I show you all some chin self portraits, that will allow more of an idea of how the cowl's variegated colors can be arranged.
And rearranged. I encourage you to focus on the design of the cowl and not on my old chin!
Thank you all so much for visiting and leaving me comments. What a grand blogging community we have. Happy Halloween!
