New Lorna's Laces colors! The first 4 are from the Sock Summit's Dye for Glory contest, where dyers had the opportunity to enter their yarn in various categories. Below are 4 from Lorna's Lace's Monster Party theme (perfect for upcoming Halloween): Frankenstein's Cotillion, Ghoul's Gala, Medusa's Masquerade & Zombie BBQ. The fifth color is Burnside (a well-known blvd. in Portland, OR), the special edition commemorative Sock Summit '09 colorway that LL dyed JUST for SSYC!
The weather here has been downright odd lately. Early in the week, it stormed and was humid. Now the air has the cool bite of October. Which I kind of like, because we can have the windows open...if the neighbors haven't spread liquid manure over the fields. There's nothin' like the smell of putrid horse and cow poop to make you close up your house. But the weather has created some beautiful skies this week; some with a dim glow that casts everything in a warm gold light, others with threatening storms rolling in, and more with vivid sunsets of mauve, blue and violet.
