Autumn

We are trying to hang on to autumn for as long as possible, although the mornings and nights are getting chillier, the stores all have their holiday displays out and the kids have already started planning their lists to Santa. For this week at least, I am ignoring it all, taking things slow and leisurely knitting on my fall sweaters.

The herbs are all safely tucked inside for the winter

Just have the left sleeve and left front to go on my Spoked Cardigan. Can't wait to wear this before the season is over.

Loving the mindless stockinette

My Vodka Gimlet has seen a lot of attention this week. Almost finished with the collar and then there will only be the sleeves left to knit. It has been hard to put down, especially as most of it has been knitted while sitting in my favorite new knitting spot. The full room reveal will be coming up soon.


I went a little yarn crazy at Michaels the other day and bought a basketful of Stitch Nation yarns. So many pretty colors to choose from. These are for an upcoming crochet(!) project.



 (In the mood for some lovely projects? Head on over to WIP Wednesday with TAMI'S AMIS.)

  6. I know what you mean about keeping fall... I am trying not to be sad about the upcoming rainy and gloomy winter we have here. Right now I am loving the leaves and the different angles of the sunlight.

  7. Your WIPs are lovely and I'm a huge fan of stitch nation -- the colors are so beautiful. I have to ask -- did you make that autumn basket or did you buy it? I love it.
