Wonderful Word Wednesday


by Helen Hunt Jackson
The goldenrod is yellow;
The corn is turning brown;
The trees in apple orchards
With fruit are bending down.
The gentian's bluest fringes
Are curling in the sun;
In dusky pods the milkweed
Its hidden silk has spun.
The sedges flaunt their harvest
In every meadow-nook;
And asters by the brookside
Make asters in the brook.
From dewy lanes at morning
The grapes' sweet odors rise;
At noon the roads all flutter
With yellow butterflies.
By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer's best of weather,
And autumn's best of cheer.

Yoke Sweater for Alex

I got the boy to model the sweater I knitted for him...not to his neglect but we had rain for three days.

    The pattern and the yarn are Bernat...I really like the denim style yarn it is very soft and easy to work with.

The pattern was a little difficult to read.  Kind of skipped a few steps...but I figured it out.  It was also written different than what the photo showed. I had to use four balls of blue instead of three  But it fit well, and I will be making one for my doughtier in Red.  Hers I will make a size larger, though his is a perfect will not fit him next year.

I am not selling anything...but if you want to make one go to and the sweater is called Yoke Sweater.
