Look me straight in the eyes …
…and tell me that this unexpectedly interesting color combination looks bad. This is the (mostly) Green Autumn Sweater for my younger niece.
I had bought one of each color of green , and of blue, from KnitPicks Swish ( a yarn which I have found is a really nice choice for making sweaters for growing kids) and came up with this lot. I thought I’d be lucky to find any combination of a few shades, but I ended up loving the mismatched hues, and I bought more ! Blueish Teal with Olivey Mossy Green ? You bet ! Reminds me of Amish Quilt color combinations.
( Oh, and the row marker charm was made and given to me by Morrie. )

So we returned from the “Out-and-About” Treehouse Village in Oregon, as last mentioned in this post . We stayed for two nights and two days, and I knit most of the time. This was my upstairs little knitting nook…
…and from within, this was my view of the rest of the place. There are catwalks up in the trees , between some really high-up treehouses, all interconnected in a web of rope and wood walkways, seeming to be about 50 feet in the air !!! But we stayed in one of the separate ones, which had steps up to it, called “Serendipitree”.
Here is a photo of the outside . My knitting nook was the tiny room above.

I thought to mention also, that indeed Autumn is approaching when it is harvest time in Napa Valley. I took this shot while driving along Rutherford Cross Road last weekend. (click the photo to see a detail of the cabernet grapes)
