When All Those Colors Have Faded

We are at that stage of early fall when summer's colors, poised to fade, seem more intense, more saturated than ever.

Yesterday I finished the scarf for Warm Hats, Warm Hearts. Hopefully it will cheer someone as well as keep them warm in the cold months ahead.

I guessed that one skein of Malabrigo would yield about a 48-inch scarf. It turned out to be a good guess: the blocked size is 48.5 inches long x 6.25 inches wide.

All week, as I knit this scarf, I had both marigolds and pumpkin pie on my mind. It certainly is a delicious color.

Meanwhile, the set-in sleeves worked top down on Pomegranate are progressing nicely. I am on the home stretch ...
