Bring on Autumn

I just love this time of year! I love watching the World Series (I will really enjoy the World Series if the Royals and the Cardinals are playing in it). I love knitting while watching a football game on T.V. I love the leaves falling, apples in abundance, hot dog roasts, etc. However, the best part of this change of seasons is the knitting-to-do list.

I have once again asked all grown sons to make sure they still have their neckwarmers, the grown daughters are checking the hat situation for all the grandchildren, and my six daughters are also choosing hats, cowls, and fingerless mitts for themselves. In addition, I have several projects to make for myself. At the moment, there are twenty-three projects on the knitting-to-do list and I love it.

Bring on autumn!


Llama Lace

I SO adore fiber. I SO adore all fibers. I thought I had created a project from every fiber in the world. Yet, I now realize that I have never knitted with yarn made from the fiber of a Llama. That just may have to change today! Yarns Sold and Told has just received ten different colors of this luxurious yarn. Gorgeous colors and soft, soft, soft. This yarn could be combined with another yarn to make the Metalouse shawl or even other Stephen West shawls. Stop by YARNS and see for yourself.

The perfect cowl

As soon as I walked into Yarns Sold and Told today, I notice new kits! The Rivington Cowl is beyond belief! YARNS has organized this kit with the pattern and the pairing of Jilly Dream yarn with Heritage Silk. Using those two yarns, you are guaranteed the wonderful drape like the model Connie Jo made for the store! As usual, Marilyn got the job of pairing up the skeins as she is our “Color Expert”. Drop by and see these kits or even choose your own yarn for this delightful cowl.
