I am so happy to be a part of this knit-along! This is the first time I have ever joined a knit along, and I am really enjoying all of you already!
I have sent Susan a photo of my yarn choices so she can post it--I promise to learn how to post a photo myself! In the mean time, I wanted you to see what I chose. I love the ruby red, silver silver and loden leaf; the chianti, roasted coffee and tahiti teal looked great in the yarn shop, but now that it is home with me , , ,hmmmmmmm. The khaki and gold are fine, I think. I chose to use Brown Sheep: my yarn shop has a great choice of colors, and I like the way it knits for projects like this! The guage is 4.5 per inch on an 8 needle, which is what I will work up to see if it matched the pattern. I can't wait to cast on!

As a point of reference, all of the colors I chose look like the leaves falling in Pennsylvania right now!

The leaves are like that here too. Still quite beautiful, although I think by the end of the week, they'll all be on the ground. We've had a long, lovely fall in Toronto.

Jenny, is there snow for you yet? I'm probably going to be in Calgary sometime in the next month and I'm already shivering just thinking about it.

Melissa,
Find an image you like, then we'll save it as an image to your computer. Then, under profile, you can upload/download...I get these confused...your pic. Or send it to me, and I can do it. We'll get you a picture.

Sarah, we had snow the other day but not too much and now it's gone, just really cold. I miss the beautiful autumn of Toronto (I lived there for a year). We don't have autumn in Edmonton - it just goes from green to dead.

Melissa, I love the colors! The pillows will be magnificent. (that's my big word usage for the day)
