Some Fall ramblings ...

Monday, September 22, 2014

September begins with a bang!  High school for my kids and family birthdays too.
 Lauren turns 17!!!  I can't believe how fast time goes!  Seems like yesterday my little Lauren was 5, now she is driving.  EEEEKKKKKKK!

Chalk Art for Lauren :)
Kitchen Art :)
Maybe overkill but I don't care!

We celebrated with FUDGY THE WHALE!  as per Lauren's request.

In the spirit of Fall, as it begins officially this evening .... I want to share some of our WIP's and finished knits.

I Love this cardigan.  From this book.
I bought this book sometime last year and currently have 2 projects on needles.  I LOVE almost every pattern in the book.  I am using 100% cotton yarn in a perfect fall shade :)

Saturday mornings ... knitting ... baseball practices ... Coffee!

Finished the back ... on to the front.
Weekend Pullover

This is the coziest sweater.  Highland alpaca wool!  Yummy.

This is going to be perfect when I am by the water watching my son play baseball!

Poncho Perfect!!!  Pattern here.  I used 2 strands of yarn together and larger needle size. The pattern is for child sizes.  I followed the larger size and used lots of leftover yarns to create the varied stripes. 
Okay ... this one is my favorite!  Made by Lauren (my daughter) for me. 
This was lying unfinished for some time.  I finally blocked it and weaved in the ends. 

Beautiful coral yarn from my local yarn shop.  Wish I saved the tags.  I'm pretty sure its cashmere and another blend.  The beads are a beautiful champagne color.   

Ahhhh, so pretty! Pattern here.  Lauren left off the pointy edge finish.  I think it makes it a little more fallish if that makes sense.  She also used larger needles and thicker yarn than the pattern suggests. 

And ..... A little DIY for the front door. 

 Happy First day of Fall Y'all!!!!
