(Edited Update)
I will continue to take photo entries until November 16th. All entries will be posted in the photo section.

Voting will open on November 18th and will end on the 23rd. Winners will be announced on the 24th. So far, I have some variagated sock yarn and handmade stitch markers as a prize. I hope to add more goodies over the next week. Thanks for all of your great pictures.

Fall Foliage, that is (get your minds out of the gutter). After seeing all of the sky pictures out there, I thought that ya'll might be interested in seeing the fall foliage as it changes in the mountains of SW Virginia. I'm also very interested in seeing what it looks like in your part of the world. You can include knitting or landmarks in your pictures, whatever floats your boat as long as fall foliage is featured. Send me the link to your fall foliage pictures in the "shout outs" section of this post. In November (after most of the leaves should have changed), I'll hold a contest where everyone can vote for their favorite picture. We'll include several categories including best amateur photo, best professional photo and best photo with knitting. The winner(s) will win some yet to be determined knitting swag. If you would like to destash and offer prezzies as part of this contest, let me know via email - indigomuseatverizondotnet. Let the exihibitionism begin!

Wish I had some fall leaves! Everything here is just brown or maybe yellow. A lot is still green... Oh how I miss New York falls!

My yard is surrounded by oak trees. Unfortunately, these kind of trees don't go much for color. Leaves go from green straight to brown, then cover our yard.

But here is a photo of them, with my daughter (16 months old) playing in the pile her dad had just raked up!

This was on Sunday. By Monday evening, the yard was covered again! I tease him every day, "Why didn't you rake the leaves?" :)

Tanya...you left a comment on my blog asking if I'd like to enter your Fall Foilage Photo contest by submitting the picture of Hocking Hills that I posted on Sunday October 24th.

Neither Cherise or I took that picture - I found it on the 'net. BUT! Cherise took a few great pictures of a beautiful tree across from our house. I've got to find it - but I plan to send it to you later today or tomorrow.

Love your blog!
