I'm told that the color for the fall is Marsala, which is a rich dark red. I approve of this, it's a color I look good in and such it is that I'm scanning clothing sales hoping to add judiciously to the wardrobe before they bring some odd spring color upon us next year that makes me look either like a small child or that I have no color sense. "Rich earthy neutrals" (says Pantone)--Yes please.
Of course, I'm also preparing for Winter, a season well worth the capital letter. My first Loopy Academy Project for the fall helped with that.
The pattern is Adama and it it knit out of two skeins of Steamer Trunk (by Mrs. Crosby, of course)
Normally, it's meant to be worn more like a very small shoulder cape, but I liked the idea of pulling it up as a hood. It is long enough that it would still tuck under my coat.
The goal for this project was texture and this pattern has lots of it.
And I think it will provide a very nice pop of color with my cream winter coat.
Marshmallow time is almost upon us.
Now if I could just get those other two projects rolling....
