I had a few days off and my uncle and aunt invited me up to their vacation house in the Poconos to get away for a spell. They have a house in Hawley, PA which is about a 5 - 6 hour drive. I knew there would be lots of sitting on the porch and looking at the leaves. I would need a project that would allow me to concentrate on the conversation and not the chart or tricky pattern.
While Autumn Rose was sitting there haunting me, I needed something a bit more mindless. I came out of the
gold (that is what I tell people is in there so they will understand why I won't let them see in there), stash, extra bedroom with the "Striped Silky Wool Jacket" which had been marinating in there for a couple of years.
I choose a slightly less bright colorway and the project fit my purposes perfectly. I was able to finish one sleeve and get started on another before driving back to Virginia. Here is a picture of the left front that I am currently working on.
