autumn makes me want to knit! such a pretty misty blue you've got there.
giddyup! what are you making?
Love this gorgeous blue. You've made me regret not knitting as it must be a wonderful way to spend those long evenings.
I've pulled out my big red sweater, set aside a year ago. I had to relearn how to cable, but am making progress once again. Yay for yarn!
LOVE that color!Happy autumn Denise.
Love this picture
I feel a rustic cosiness creeping over me when I look at this. Bring on the ocean winds.
love your blue...and love the moment that you realise that's the end of summer, that what lies ahead is (for now) is a season of welcome change.
Yes, me too! I recently picked up the socks that I had almost finished last spring, but then lost interest in over the summer. Who needs wool socks in summer, anyway? That's a lovely yarn you have there. I too would like to know what you're making.
Same here! I like it!That's a very lovely blue indeed - what is it that you're knitting?
Yes, indeed. And this image makes me wish knitting wasn't so frustrating for me - I want to like it!
Love the blue and light wood together. Makes a fetching color combination. Whatcha makin'? A cool-blue scarf to wear on these chilly autumnal evenings?
Hello, Ladies. Thanks for stopping by. It's a scarf. The yarn is really soft (merino wool + kid mohair) and I enjoy knitting with it. I had to unravel and start over a couple of times before I found the right needle and stitch. Such is life. All set now. Moving along... Rachael, Sweater? Cable? You are way ahead of me. I tried to start a sweater once. I still have the yarn, an awesome chocolate brown alpaca. I should give it another go.Sharon, I haven't tried socks. It might be nice to have a handmade pair for winter...
cozy cozy cozy. That color is yummy. I need you to teach me how to knit properly.
Kim, I'd love to teach you how to knit. I don't know about "properly", but I'd be happy to show you what I know. Just let me know when you are up for it.
I used to meet up every Saturday with a very talented older woman who quilted and knit and made baskets. She would "coach" a bunch of us, my sister and I included, in our knitting projects. We've since moved and she actually passed away a few years ago, but I do miss the Saturday mornings, over coffee and some sort of baked good. And of course the unique feel of yarn around my fingers and the clicking of the needles. But i'd be lost, really lost without a coach. Your scarf is going to be beautiful.
such a lovely blue!
I love the colours and textures in this photo.
Nicole, When I lived in Point Reyes Station I attended knitting group gatherings in the public library. Sue was the talented older woman who "coached" our group. I miss those gatherings.
This was the perfect post to direct me to! And it helped me get 'back in the saddle' as well. Knitting has commenced...life is slowly returning to normal!btw--what are you knitting? beautiful color!
Rachel, I'm sure a little normalcy is welcome in your life right now. Enjoy it. This was my first attempt at a scarf I knit for a friend. I unraveled and tightened up the same stitch by starting over with a smaller needle. The color reminds me of you.
