Playing in the Leaves

It’s been a long, long time since I’ve actually spent time in a Fall season setting. Watching the daily (sometimes hourly!) changes as the leaves turn colors is magical. And shuffling through piles of drying leaves, hearing their faint crackle and swooshing sounds, makes me feel like a kid playing in the leaves again.

Some of you might remember seeing an aspen tree in the photo I had of John’s patio with the cedar glider. See What is your favorite knitting spot?

Here are some more recent photos I was able to quickly take before leaving the beautiful Fall weather in Colorado last week to return home

These childhood memories were the inspiration for designs in my Playing in the Leaves pattern. It’s been really, really nice to be able to relive some of those memories at John’s new house in Colorado this Fall.
