It took several tries to gt the hang of knitting the leafy edge of Autumn Leftie. I learned quite quickly great attention must be paid to how the leaf is formed, to not do too many wrap & turn rows, and to not over think. Several leaves were knit multiple times, as I tried to etch the pattern into my brain. My first mistake was trying to learn a new pattern while visiting with friends and somehow, an extra short row would throw the whole leaf off. After knitting half a dozen, or so, leaves I think I'm into a rhythm and moving forward.
Leaves of many colors and shapes fly past my window on this warm and blustery fall day. Change is in the air, as a winter storm is on our doorstep. The promise is for snow and I pray the snow gods will fill the mountains with large deposits of their white fluffiness. With last years dry winter, and a summer of little rain, we are in sore need.
