A Fall Leaf

Leaf Blanket, folded.

When the Leaf Blanket was originally published, my mind couldn’t help but wander to all the possibilities. With the chill in the air this past weekend, I was itching to cast on something ultra cozy, so I immediately thought of the Leaf Blanket in sweet Spud & Chloë Outer!

Leaf Blanket, flat.

I don’t have any wee ones on the way, but this speedy knit will wait for the next little one. It completely satisfied my cozy-knit-need and looks perfectly October in Cedar #7209.

    Fall–cool nights—warm days(hopefully) My favorite part of fall are the falling magnificent colored leaves—beauty on a tree then a carpet of color to walk on–Great time for knitting this blanket is a neat project–large needles and done in a leaf color and just the right size so I don’t spill my hot apple cider on it.

    I love crunching through the leaves and the sounds and smell while walking through them.
