Orange you glad you checked my blog?

I found a dishcloth that I really liked On Criminy Jickets blog, I liked the pattern so much and the cotton yarn was actually decent to knit with (Ok so it's not cashmere or merino, but not bad to knit with, this cotton is actually pretty comfortable on the hand). I knitted this up with Sugar N Cream's Hot Orange and Sage Green, I am hoping that it washes well.
Do you remember lazy summer days, sitting on a porch and sipping a cold soda from a bottle. Well this was the soda from my childhood (on the rare occaisions that my Mother allowed us to have soda). There is something about drinking soda from a glass bottle, the flavor is crisper, cleaner, the fragrance somehow bolder. Soda's from a plastic bottle just seem to be missing something.

These carrots were very sweet and crunchy, they were very smooth in appearance compared to the carrots in the other stalls. I may end up succombing to the urge to straighten the vendor's produce prior to taking a photo.

Fall is definately on its way and these little mini pumpkins were quite charming, recalling the aroma of pumpkin pies baking in the oven

I spotted this lovely Orange daylily in a parking lot, there were lots of daylillies strewn throughout the lot, yet this one captured my attention.

Orange, Orange everywhere - ok now maybe it wasn't everywhere and maybe I had to be a little more observant than usual to see all these orange possibilities, still it was a pleasant diversion. I'm done with the color theme for now. So here is something beautiful that isn't orange. I spotted this bouquet at Costco and was amazed - it was SO romantic, I was tempted to pick it up, but it was the only one of this quality and I am a hopeful romantic, I could imagine some galant gentleman bringing this to his lady love.

luscious oranges:) I especially love the baby pumpkins. I've just finished orange socks for the solid sock KAL and it was good to work with a colour I don't always use on its own:)

What a wonderful orangey fall post! I've made many dishcloths from Sugar N Cream (It's called Peaches N Cream here)and we use them all the time both for washcloths and dishcloths - I love your color combo!

Orange is one of my favorite colors in nature. Looks so far like you are starting a color theme. So what is the next color that you are going to observe?
