The beautiful Parrotia persica tree I showed you in my September 15 post is even more intensely purple now, and divested of about half of its leaves by a few days and nights of our first Autumn rain and wind storms. Said leaves have created a tattered carpet beneath the tree, a harbinger of far more yet to come.
Meanwhile, I’ve been dedicated to weaving the four scarves on that rough yet soft silk noil warp ~
The combination of wonderful colors, subtle texture and complex patterning makes these scarves some of my best in recent times. They’ll be about eight inches wide and over six feet long after washing and firm ironing, and will drape and shimmer beautifully. It’s quite possible I’ll keep one of them for myself; this is, after all, my favorite season.
