There's one place I need to make a pilgrimage to whenever I come east. I really like to have an hour or two, rather than a meager half-hour, when I come; but I still managed to find a treasure on this trip! I love the way this yarn looks and feels--so soft! There were only 4 balls of this color on the shelf, so that's all I got; but there are more on the website. It comes in "natural" colors and I'm already thinking that the grey would make a lovely sweater. For me. Mmmm!

One reason I didn't have much time at Webs was that I went to see my dad.
He's currently residing at the Holyoke Soldiers' Home. This is the view from the parking lot, in a couple of different directions. It's too bad that I'm here a little too early for "peak color" but it's already well under way. Some of the trees seem to glow with an inner fire. It's indescribably beautiful.

Usually, the hills and mountains are just a mass of greenery, which while lovely is a bit uniform. But once the leaves start turning, each individual tree takes on its own color and you can really see them standing apart. Makes driving down the Interstate kind of dangerous, because my tendency is to get distracted and go Oooh! and Aaah!

More later. I'm driving all the way to the bottom of Connecticut today...

Wow. Webs. It's real. Definitely worthy of a pilgrimage!

And the trees are gorgeous; I know what you mean about being distracted while driving - I always have the same problem when I'm back east this time of year :)

*hee* I knew you'd get to Webs.

Have fun at the reunion!

Hope you're having a great trip! I'm jealous - of your trip to Webs and being in New England while the leaves are changing. Enjoy!

Fall means going back to school and that always makes me grumble. But then the leaves turn and I suddenly love fall again! Isn't it gorgeous?
