  • peak fall

    I think Trondheim finally hit peak fall color in the past week (yes, I know, I am still talking about autumn, but I just can't get over how long and slow it is here!). But on Tuesday a serious windstorm blew through and knocked down quite a few of the leaves. I have a few snaps from the weekend and the past few days, though, that show some of the beautiful golden color I've been surrounded by lately. Luckily, there are still a few leaves still hanging on even after the windstorm, though these photos are all from beforehand.

    I've also finished a few knitting projects lately. Both the No Frills I mentioned in my last post, as well as the Featherweight Cardigan you can see in this one, and I also finished up a new design. We got to take some pattern photos last weekend, pre-windstorm, and it was nice to take advantage of the fall colors both on the trees and blanketing the ground. These mitts are for a pattern that will be called Oak Hollow, about which more soon.

    If it's fall in your part of the world, I hope you're getting the chance to soak up some color. The autumn gold that's ubiquitous in Norway always makes me feel like I'm in Lothlorien (especially if it's a birch grove), and I love it so much.
