Feeling Fall...

It's still a bit warm in Southern Louisiana, but mornings are becoming cooler and cooler.  I made a scarf.  Mom found 3 mohair skeins of a discontinued Lang Yarns colorway for next to nothing.  This pattern made use of all three with a slight modification to the pattern...I can't wait to wear it! 
The sparrows started arriving this weekend...a sure sign cooler weather is on the way.  Here are my feathered friends, the white-throated sparrow and slightly smaller chipping sparrow...a tad dull coloring but each has lovely song just in time for gray days.
Our biggest concern this winter is Pepe, we have no idea how old he is but is showing signs of arthritis when the mornings are chill.  So far, he lets me pamper him and has agreed to no jumping off or on the bed.  His sister pups tend to cuddle near him so someone is always with him day and night...but it is hard to think about letting go.
And a little work work happened this weekend.  I changed up the colors of my Pump Up the Jam Canning towel in a hand-mixed green.  I had some request for this color to match the reintroduction of Ball's green jars...just a small run of 6 to see how they do.
