The light
is soft in the Surprise Lilies

and the cone flowers.

The light seems to bounce about in the zinnias

and the bee balm.

The Gold Finches have a light of their own.

I have finished knitting my first yarn from Flora,
the Paco-Vicuna, I visited last month.

I designed a simple garter stitch scarf for my friend.
The bow detail is the tail from when I casted on my first stitches.
I am knitting another Flora scarf for me.
I once again will be knitting the simple plain stitch.
I am interesting in showing Flora's fiber
not how cleaver I am with the knitting needles!
The garter stitch scarves will hold up nicely.

The light seems to bounce from the yarn.
The yarn so soft.
When I walk this Autumn I will be warmed by Flora.
I will be connected with my friend in England.

My dear Sherry.....first the blooms butterflies and birds show the skill of your photography......one day I will get there, I am learning patience.

The scarf is so beautiful.....to know which animal the yarn came from is such a lovely connection......each stitch, made with care and love......
I love the simplicity of the stitch.....somehow it reflects the beauty of all the scarf holds. The sweet little bow is almost like a signature.....

I am sure that your friend will treasure it always......and will look forward to the colder autumn days to come.......

Oh Sherry, the blossoms, birds and butterflies are so beautiful---and what a lucky friend, your scarf is just gorgeous--I can 'feel' the silkiness of it.

Congrats on your first project finished. It looks great. I love the loose look of the scarf. You and Cheryl will be nice and toasty this winter.

What pretty flowers and birds. The yarn looks soft too. I'm glad you enjoy knitting. My mom likes to knit also.
