There's Gold in Them Thar Hills!!

Before last week's storms(with gusts of hurricane force winds) the big leaf maples were full of gold.

First a lemon gold on the hill behind the house...My own golden pond...
And all this gold comes out in a sweater for me! I had this mustard/buckskin Manos wool for 7-8 years, waiting for the right idea. When I buy yarn for myself, I buy color, and often it's that "weirdo" color that ends up an orphan. I had three skeins, and added the dark brown and ivory in either an old chunky Harrisville wool, or Bartlett--labels long gone. The mill end mystery fur yarn I bought at the now gone Robin and Russ Handweavers in McMinnville, Or. Now I wish I'd snapped up all the cones--it's great for a shearling look! I had to design around the three skeins of Manos, and was left with a few yards.
