Falling Leaves

It arrived in the mail this week ~ along with the full moon, clear cold nights and change in the air that signals autumn...my favorite time of the yarn and my yarn gift from Natalie:

Beautiful yarn in flaming fall colors and a pattern written by Natalie herself called Falling Leaves. The photo that inspired her is inspiring to me, too...I love it!

I did reskein the yarn (see below) and I really, really want to start on the socks right NOW ~ LOL ~ but I have so many other little projects close to completion that I should finish first. But couldn't I at least cast on?!?

Thank you so much, Natalie, and thank you Celena for a fun swap!
