A Beautiful November Day

I left home at 8:30 to go to Chattanooga and the mist was still hanging in the low spots below the hilltops. I pulled over to the roadside to shoot these pictures. It was warm in the sun but the cold air held its moisture in the valleys.
Going downhill into the clouds.

In Chattanooga I found this house with Scarlet Runner Beans as porch cover. This is an annual which I have in my garden, in the dark shade, so it never grew like this. I will gather seeds and find a sunnier spot and see if I can get a monster like this next year.
The knitting group I joined was lots of fun, and we are of 'like minds' politically. In fact I sorta had to pass a test to join. My opinions matched, so I am in. Phew!
I met with my sister for a chat afterward and then I had to go to the Genuine Purl for some hot pink, yellow, lime green and purple fingering weight yarns. Nada. I bought nothing. I will just have to dye up my own.

  1. Don't you just love waking up the mornings like that?

  2. Looks like you did a little dashboard art along the way :^)
    So glad your new knit group looks like a great fit.
    Gee, dye your own???? Looks like your lucky day !!!

  3. Mel, since you are so good and dyeing your own fabric and yarn, don't you find it difficult to find exactly what you want in the store? Your own work allows you to get exactly the color you want. Love your mittens by the way. Those are the one thing I learned to knit, but only with my mom nearby to bail me out. I'm not a knitter, and am more comfy with crochet but still only do scarves and simple afghans.


So nice of you to drop by. I love your comments, and if you would really like a reply, please email me at fibermania at g mail dot com
