Cool Weather Projects

Well, I knitted a hat.  It was a spur of the moment project that turned out... o.k.  After thumbing through the pages of the new French Girl Knits Accessories book...

I was instantly drawn to a pretty cable beret.  So I decided to make up one of my own.  Despite the confusion of the pattern I finished and it looks o.k.  There are some changes that I would have made if I were to make it again, plus it's a little big, but I will still wear it.

And with the cooler weather I have been a cooking and baking fool.

I have been itching to do some Fall reading and get my fingers into some yarning projects.  I think I might break into the 100+ half-finished projects that I have waiting for me instead of staring anything new.  We will see how that works out.  Until then, Happy Fall!!!!

Recently Lovelies

I recently had a few Thank You gifts to make. Scarves are easy and perfect to make this season and thus are my go-to gifts for such occasion.  

I have also been making some store samples, here is what I like to call my "50 Shades" hat.  If you have read the book, you'll get the references....  if you haven't, then read the book!!! :-)

It's been a busy start to fall and I have much more to do.  The cooler weather definitely kicks off my "Yarning" season, so I am sure that I will have plenty more to share soon!  Until then... Happy Fall!
