Autumn forest walk with Bo, and some current WIPs

October is the most beautiful month in Korea, in my humble opinion. I made time this week for a forest walk with my pup, having in mind to admire the foliage in all its fiery glory.

I’m not familiar with all the names of the trees, except those red Japanese maples, and the Korean pines. You can see a bit of video of our walk, below (Bodhi makes a cameo at the end):

I’ve brought the autumn colors inside, too, with my ongoing projects. I’m about half-way through the Wanderlust shawl. The yarn is a treat to work with – it’s 100% acrylic, very soft, and has a subtle halo. I’m well on my way to using 3 skeins, and I am pretty sure now that I will edge it in brown, and add some tassels.

I’m using another Scheepjes yarn, Sugar Rush in Moon Rock (a medium taupe), to create a lampshade skirt for a drum shade in my living room. This shade so happens to exactly match the chair next to the lamp, and if you remember the Spice Market mandala, this is one of the yarns I used for it – I had more than a ball left, plenty to make this shade cover. In the left photo, you can see I am almost finished. The final touch will be fire-polished glass beads, coming in the mail this week from the Czech Republic. I’m so grateful that I am still able to order supplies form around the world to support my hobbies.

Warm wishes for a wonderful autumn or spring, wherever you may reside! I’ll be sure to check in around Halloween to share a treat and some news.
