Autumn is for Knitting

Just back from a working weekend at the Oregon farm, where autumn looks like it's nearing its end.  Most of the leaves are down, so that meant lots of raking and flower bed cleaning.  The chickens are laying eggs - they're delicious!  However, two of them decided to turn into mean girls and started pecking the feathers off the other hens.  Badly.  So enter Hector!  He's a very nice rooster - and within half a day had the hens shaped up. 

The scarf from the handspun alpaca/merino wool I bought in Vermont is almost done.  It's so soft and warm - perfect for keeping my husband warm when we're next up at the farm!  The pattern is from The Purl Bee here - very easy. There's just something about cool days, cold nights, a warm fire, and knitting .... they're meant to go together.

Happy Creating!  Deborah
