Hello everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. It is so beautiful where I live right now, the fall colors are outstanding! Speaking of color, or the lack thereof, I am bringing you a post showing the beauty and simplicity of some knitwear designs that are very neutral but pleasing to the eye and which are rich in texture which is imperative in a neutral color scheme. Aaah, it is amazing what can be done with yarn, right?

The latest book by Kaffe Fassett and Brandon Mably, “Knitting With The Color Guys”, is finally in my possession! I have had my eye on this book for some time and it has not disappointed. As we have all come to love and expect, it is full of wonderfully colorful photos and extremely creative projects. Some of the projects are relatively easy ranging to some more challenging ones. For those of you who are intimidated by color projects (I am), I really think several of these patterns are very doable and well worth a try. Here are some excerpts from the book:
Good morning everyone. I would like to introduce you to a wonderful podcast if you already don’t know about it. It is iMake, hosted by the lovely Martine from the Guernsey Islands. She talks about a wide range of crafty topics that might include knitting, sewing, the Guernsey culture, etc. It is very entertaining and enjoyable, please be sure and check it out.
And now for a knitting update; I have been working on the Garter Stitch Coat by Debbie Bliss for a while now. It is moving right along and the first sweater/coat I have ever made. So far, I am very pleased and encouraged by it. Since it is done entirely in garter stitch, it is a very good project for a newbie sweater knitter such as myself. I would encourage any of you out there to jump right in and not be intimidated by starting a sweater as I was for so very long. Once you get going, it is not bad at all and very rewarding to do.
Hellooooo everyone. Yes, I am back from a very interesting and enlightening two weeks of college planning and visiting for my senior son, soon-to-be graduate. It is like a part-time job!
ANYHOO, I though it might be fun to take a look at some mood boards and maybe inspire you to make your own. Here are a few:
Hello there and hope you are having a splendid day. I have here two publications I recently acquired that I thought you all might enjoy and be inspired by and want to go out and grab!

Hello, everyone. I am so glad to be here talking to you about knitting mostly, other crafts, maybe some food now and then, and whatever else I think might trip your flipper. To start off with, here is what I have been working on lately; a design of my own, a stole, “Sunflower” after the yarn I used (a handpainted Merino-Worsted 4-ply by the talented lady at http:/www.yarndaze.com. It’s a nice fall color, don’t you think?
I hope you all have had a great yellow/Fall day! Thank you for visiting, please come again.
