The color starts slowly. The cold front moved in last night and brought with it some much needed rain. The rain washed the dryness away and everything appears clean, crisp and sharp.

the cooler air is welcome, the overcast sky makes for interesting light. Each morning when I wake, I am noticing the darkness. I don't mind the passing of summer, just the loss of light. I've been washing windows...

I am not inspired by my walk today. I cannot seem to stop thinking about the yarn I am spinning. A finn/alpaca blend. See it inside the window on the niddy noddy? Seeing it makes me want to go inside and do some more spinning...it's on the Canadian's (Quebec) bobbin...it beckons...

The other night when I could not sleep, I came downstairs to spin this wool. I spun for over an hour. It was better than sleep. No plans for it, no project awaits...I just want to spin it...all of it...

Oh my Gosh! The yarn is gorgeous (and so are your windows)!

It's absolutely beautiful! I love the reflection of your hands in the window, too. How'd you do that?

Love the picture of the indside and outside together. Yarn looks pretty good too. I know you have to have somthing in the queue on Ravelry to use that on!

Cyndy, you have such a fantastic photographer's eye. The second and third pictures are both wonderful; one for the starkness and lines, the other for all that is captured in such clarity.

I've thought about getting up and spinning during the dark hours. I'm afraid it'd easily become a bad habit.

Lovely to look at your yarn. :) here in nyc we're also finally enjoying the cooler air that came in with the heavy rain.
