Down on the Farm, rug to be felted

Crocheting a rug to be felted with wool yarn in the colors of autumn.

There is so much to love about autumn on the farm. The incessant bugs take a back seat, the humidity drops, the nights are crisp and cool, and it’s harvest time. But the colors of autumn are something I always treasure.

Remember springtime, when the earth shook off its perpetual black-and-white photograph look of winter and burst with color once more? Greens, pinks, yellows. How thrilling to see buds and blooms after winter. Autumn holds that magic as well, when after months of every shade of green imaginable, the world is transformed into the most brilliant reds, oranges, burgundies, and golds. While humans often bemoan change, it’s as if nature celebrates it with all her might.
