I am posting so late! Today was one of those days were I only worked for part of the day, so I thought I had plenty of time to get lots of things done. Well, one never has an infinite amount of time. I did run some important errands, including getting my hair cut:
Anyway, I finished this scarf last night, and I meant to post this a lot earlier. But I am doing it now; that’s what counts.
Behold! Grey scarf, knitted in baby alpaca yarn, from a pattern printed in the 1940s.
I tricked the Man into modeling for me. Doesn’t he look manly?!
This scarf is soft like a baby lamb or knitted scarf. Seriously, this is beautiful to feel. I can’t say it any better than that. It’s big too, which is how I like my scarves.
I am planning on listing this in the Etsy shop this weekend. It’s the first of (hopefully) many items I want to knit based on vintage patterns. Like I mentioned earlier, this pattern was printed in the 1940s. There was a glove pattern that matches, but it would be a PITA to knit. So I just made the scarf.
I’ve already got something new on the needles! I’m hoping to get some serious knitting done this weekend on a little road trip. Hope you’re all having a creative weekend! See you back here next week. As always, I want to hear what you’re making too. Share!
Fall has arrived in New England. We are having chilly mornings and evenings, leaves falling from the trees, and mums popping up everywhere.
I took on this week’s Gussy Sews Inspiration Workshop!‘s prompt as a photography challenge. Whenever I saw something “Fall”, I whipped out my camera and snapped some pictures.
For your eyeballs only, my version of Fall:
We are having a rainy fall. I went into the woods to take a picture of the leaves falling and discovered this waterfall in full force. The sound was deafening. It was beautiful!
Here is the project that’s on my needles right now. I am knitting this man’s scarf based on a pattern from the 1940′s. I am using Alpaca yarn; it feels like a cloud. Look for it in my shop hopefully this weekend!
I was knitting at my favorite coffee shop, where I ordered a Pumpkin Spice Latte. Yum! I try not to drink too much caffeine, but if I did, I would definitely have one of these every day.
With the chilly air, I have started rocking my tights. I love these in blue! They really do make a difference.
Tulmeadow Farm has their pumpkins and mums out. Beautiful! I saw yesterday that they also sell huge stalks of corn for fall decorating. I love this place, especially their ice cream. I bought Pumpkin ice cream when I was there yesterday. I love that I live so close to a farm; it is a jewel.
That’s my little fall tour from Connecticut. The leaves aren’t in full color yet, but fall has definitely arrived.
Do you experience fall where you live? Are you seeing the signs yet? This weather makes me want to knit all day. Thanks for stopping by!
