Hamster bald

So I needed to knit me up some autumn.  Calm burgundy over there…no. Didn’t want a leaves-turning-brown effect, I wanted bright red maples and blue blue skies! With a little bit of climbing blooming Californian bougainvillea thrown in–I love those flowers.

Looking around, I found some of Lisa Souza’s Mardi Gras merino kicking around and my Fibersphere to keep the yarn from running around, and hamster-balling it, I was off and away.

That is really pretty. I wonder how the hamsters feel about it?

Are the hamsters related to the squirrels? That could explain the olive that was hidden. hahahaha

Enjoy knitting that beautiful yarn! I hope to have the pleasure of doing just that myself, some day. 🙂

Loved the colors of your knitting – you’ve described them perfectly.

Many years ago we had a hamster ball to exercise DD’s mouse. However, in our house hamster ball = cat toy. Just think, a big plastic ball that moves itself and has something that wiggles all around and smells good – cat heaven!

Beautiful! Looks life maple leaf red for the east, and bright blue for California skies.


A doctor examining a woman who had been rushed to the Emergency Room,
took the husband aside, and said, ‘I don’t like the looks of your wife at all.’ 
‘Me neither doc,’ said the husband. 
‘But she’s a great cook and really good with the kids.’

I’ve been feeling that need myself–although mine manifests in hats and scarves, rather than autumnal colors. (Of course, if it stays like summer around here for too much longer, I may be reaching for the reds . . .)
