Two beautiful options
Y’know, normally by this time of the year, everything feels autumnal. It begins in early September – a few trees here and there turning that pale apple-y yellow – and picks up speed through the month. By the time October arrives, the trees are in glorious shades of russets and golds, and the air is crisp and tinged with the smell of dying leaves.
Not so this year. For reasons I don’t understand, the leaves on the trees around here refused to acknowledge the end of summer. For weeks now, the temperatures have been warm and the trees have remained green. And not just that pale, end-of-summer green, but the same vibrant, deep hues that we see all summer long: light and glowing where the sun glints through the leaves, deep and blue-ish where the shadows pool.
And yet, there were a few trees flirting with autumn, whose leaves were taking on a duller tinge and bringing a layer of nuance and depth to the landscape. As strange as it seemed to see so much green so late in the year, the effect has been beautiful.
Of course, I had to try to capture that in yarn. We started with a pale green, one with that softer quality of dappled sunlight filtered through a canopy of leaves. And then we took the colour two ways to add the depth of this odd season: first layering on the beautiful deep blue-greens of the darkest leaves, hidden from the sun in pools of shadow, then going the other way and adding in a duller, khaki green to represent the leaves that are just thinking of turning. The result is a colourway that takes green from one end of the spectrum to the other.
