Oh, October

O SUNS and skies and clouds of June,
And flowers of June together,
Ye cannot rival for one hour
October's bright blue weather;

Helen Hunt Jackson (1830-1885)

The sock is coming along nicely, I'm actually to the heel flap since this picture. It is a most enjoyable knit, too.

Even though we continue to have much rain, there has been a bit of blue sky - enough to remind me of one of my favorite poems.

The leaf is from a walk. Alas no maples in our yard.

Speaking of poetry, have you heard about the giant knitted poem? Here you can see a knitter diligently sewing the letters together. I think I first learned of this project on Cornflower's wonderful blog. She knitted an 'O'.

Oh! The giant knitted poem...Wendy, the owner of LYS, knit a letter for that. It really is such a great idea.
I love the verses you find and your yarn is splendiferous.
