Like Autumn Leaves....

....the brilliant colors of yarn warms my heart. I don't need to knit with it, or even have plans to knit with it-just looking at the brilliant colors makes me all happy inside. Take these for example-(well, not most certainly MAY NOT take them!). Don't these colors remind you of crisp autumn nights, fires in the fire place, and apple cider?

1. Wollmeise 100% in Thriller

2. Wollmeise Bob WD in 80/20

Aaaaaahhhh. Perfect for this time of year!

I also appreciate other beauty found in wood for example. I think it's amazing when craftspeople can take a piece of wood and turn it into something that's not only beautiful, but also functional. Here's an example from a Ravelry destash.

Bossie Bigleaf Maple Midi w/Cochin Rosewood shaft - .96 oz.

Now, please excuse me while I go put on a sweatshirt, grab a blanket, and play with these beauties for awhile!
