The Hunter's Moon


There is a full moon here tonight and thankfully the clouds cleared in time to get a photograph. The full moon in October is known as the Hunter's Moon, named so because in the past ~ plenty of moonlight was ideal for the hunters of migratory birds and wild game, they would have been stockpiling food for the long winter ahead. For us, it provides a beautiful light to enjoy our fall evenings. Have a wonderful weekend ~

That is a gorgeous photo. The full moon from my side of the world was beautiful too and very big.

Beautiful photograph of the moon. I've seen some lovely moons recently.
The knitting looks so delicate.

What lovely lacy knitting in your previous post. I love knitting, but have never tried knitting lace. Is it difficult to learn? And how do you know if you've dropped a stitch? Once I have moved (yes, I'm packing, I move in the middle of November) I'll have more time to sit down and concentrate on a new project.... perhaps a lacy scarf!

The hunters are out here. It is time to wear bright orange will hiking...

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
