Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.
Today, I will have a little farewell ceremony for my window boxes then cut the flowers off. They have been glorious this season and we have had warm weather later than usual but frost is predicted for tonight and snow for tomorrow. Then I’ll make my annual pilgrimage to New Harmony. This photo shows one of the oldest homes in New Harmony. It is a charming little town on the banks of the Wabash far away. For a number of years, a group of knitters have met, shared and enjoyed each other’s company there each autumn. It seems easier to face the bite of winter with a ball of wool and a set of knitting needles in my hand.

Hello from SW Indiana! I just found your blog through a link on the Indiana Knits site and was pleasantly surprised to see your post on New Harmony! When I live in Mt. Vernon, I worked for Historic New Harmony giving tours, acting as a site interpreter and other things and really enjoyed helping people make connections between the past and the present. Do you meet there every year for a retreat? The local spinning guild has a retreat at the Barn Abbey every year. It’s such a nice place to get away from it all! Glad I stumbled onto your blog!

Hugs from SW Indiana… We did have a wonderful weekend in New Harmony and shared many stories, techniques and made more warm memories with knitting friends.
I hope you did connect with Gloria or Pat RE: a little red item that was left behind. We were in a panic for you…
I am on the last part of the ugly hat (what a misnomer that is)and it is soooo cute.
Peace and untangled yarn wishes… laa
