Smitten with Autumn Colors.

Happy Tuesday friends! We’ve had some gorgeous weather this past week – blue skies, chilly nights, and sunny days warming to the 70’s. The colors and textures are stunning.

And … my Shifty Pullover (Ravelry link) is finally showing progress … more colors and texture! I’m smitten!

When I chose the colors for this sweater, I really didn’t have “autumn” in mind at all … but these are certainly colors I’m seeing outside. and now I’m wishing I had a brighter blue, and maybe a pink?! …maybe next year!

    Loving that checkerboard you’re on now! Or that you were on when you snapped the photo… 🙂 And those are lovely soft fall colors. I wouldn’t have thought of them as such until after that parade of autumn in Atlanta colors! But they are, indeed. Enjoy!

    Beautiful photos ! We are enjoying cool nights and low 80s, it’s been a welcom reprieve to our normal summer heat. Loving the look of you Shifty 😊

  • Bonny

    I think you have more leaves changing than we do. but I’m glad to see some autumn color! Your Shifty is looking lovely, too (but that pattern really needs a better name)!

  • Sarah

    It’s nice to see that you get some fall color even down south. Also, you’re already past where I am on your sweater — I only just split off the sleeves last night!

  • Kat

    Lovely photos, Mary! Thank you for sharing! It is nice to see bits of autumn popping up all around the Blogiverse! (and I agree with Bonny… that sweater needs a better name! lol)

    this time last year there was brilliant fall colors, it’s a little slow going this time around. However, the leaves are changing and dropping, yay.

    I like the subtle colors of your “Shifty,” Mary. I think it will be so lovely! (I’m afraid we may miss out on fall color altogether this year. The leaves are starting to fall . . . still green.) (So weird.)

    Finally getting caught up blog reading and love the subtle fall colors of this sweater. Can’t wait to see it finished.

    What beautiful photos. The flowers are gorgeous. We had a touch of frost this week. The zinnas are still standing but look rather ragged. The trees though are really pretty.
