    Default Fall Projects

    Hey everyone!

    Any fall projects you'd like to share? I'm just finishing up a pair of longies for a friend, will post pics when they're done in a few days. I find that the cooler weather is taking a toll on my hands, they're so sore and achey.

    I'm back to knitting a sweater that's been on hold since April. It's hard to knit something big and bulky during the hot weather.

    That's awesome! Totally understandable about knitting during the warm weather. I'm so afraid to try a sweater, I hate seaming. I knit a sweater for a 1 yr old a while back, and it turned out great, but the body was knit in one piece, and for the sleeves, I just picked up the stitches evenly around the arm hole.

    I can do hats, longies, soakers, longies, socks, slippers.. whatever, but the thought of a sweater scares me!

    Is the sweater for yourself?

    i am just getting back into knitting (taught myself in college) and have picked up crocheting. I'm hoping to finish this simple "waffle scarf' I started this weekend. I'll post a picture when it's done. With another LO on the way, I'd love to make each of the kids a nice blanket but I may only have the energy to do some simple fleece tag blankets for now.

    You have to start somewhere!

    To this day, all of the hand made stuff I've received from my grandmothers are still my favorites. Whether it's a tag blanket or a crocheted one, I'm sure they'll love it

    I finished the longies, so I'm going to take one last look for my camera charger and cord. If not, I'll try to get some decent pics with my phone!

    I've bought the yarn and have all the needles, now to find time to get started! Still tons of garden cleanup to finish. Book Club book to complete too.

    Aww its kind of nice to see that people are still sharing here! Even if its only a little bit. I'll share some projects that I've completed this fall, even though some of them were started a long long time ago!

    NYSSW Leaf Hat:


    Honey Cowl:


    Daisy Stitch Handwarmers:


    Thats it for now! Trying to decide what to knit next! I should go through my UFO's and find another to complete!

    Gorgeous leaf hat, lovely cowl! I made a scarf last year that resembles the cowl yarn. I'll try to photograph it tomorrow for you.

    There are so many handwarmer patterns out there these days! I'd use them for gardening, except they'd be destroyed in minutes.

    Who's the gorgeous model?

    Here's last year's project, a scarf made with 400 stitches per row!

    The model is me! (And thats not dandruff in my hair in the first picture, it was snowing lol)

    That scarf is beautiful. Love the yarn! Definitely reminds me of the yarn i used for the cowl. 400 stitches! Do use circular needles to hold them all?

    I like using the hand-warmers because my hands are often very cold, but i did learn quickly that they get snagged on things really easily. Well if i wear through them quickly, i guess i'll just have to make myself another pair!
