A Falling Out

autumnal Tones

green Slips into brown.
yellows, reds? they Rust away -
transmutation Time.

Shibui Knits Trifle
ShibuiKnits "Autumn" (top, bottom) "Honey" (middle)

I think shibui, or Japanese for "elegant with a touch of bitterness" perfectly describes the harbinger of change that is the first day of the Fall season.

Even though I don't see fall coming with a touch of bitterness, I love the translation for shibui. I'm looking forward to some rain!

Those red beads really make that yarn pop!

Oh I love this! I don't think I've seen that particiular color before. The way you styled it, yum!

I still fear fall is mythical. :(

Well, Fall is here where I live. I regreted wearing short sleeves while running errands today. Also, we're predicted to have showers every other day this week and morning fog on the days we have no rain.

Interesting choice of green they made in that colorway - not the traditional olive-y color.

Hope you're feeling better and the injection worked.

Oh, fall. I've seen Fall in bits and pieces whenever we traveled, but I've never *lived* with Fall weather. The trees are turning colors *exactly* like those in your pictures, here in Germany. So, so beautiful!

Mmmmmm, have you been to The Loopy Ewe again? Luscious, simply luscious, but I could see the top/bottom color as a hot/salsa/south beach florida springtime color as well.

Fall brings the smell of fireplaces and the tastes of cinnamon and spice. That's what those colors say to me. How beautiful the photo is.
