It’s the most wonderful…gingerbread cookie recipe.

Every year this time of year, my husband requests that I make my gingerbread men cookies that I make throughout the Fall and Winter seasons. I have to say that there are no short of a thousand different recipes but when I found this one, I looked no further. I love this recipe called “The…

Cute Knitted Pumpkins

Aside from Summer, Fall has to be my most favorite season of the year. I love the crisp air, Football, the leaves, the wardrobe (hello, sweater weather!) and most of all, the knits that come with it. Take this little guy….I made this pumpkin on my Singer toy knitting machine that I got last year…

And I love it! This is a pattern by Simplicity (#8520)and 95% of this, I sewed on my serger. The other 5% pertained to sewing the zipper which I used my regular machine for. I really love how this turned out. I found this fabric at my local Jo-Ann Fabrics in the Artsy Doodle section…

Happy Thanksgiving, friends.  This is my Thanksgiving sweater.  I started this Mailin sweater by Isabell Kraemer about a week before Halloween and just finished it on November 16th.  Much like people make Rhinebeck sweaters, I’ve been off-and-on knitting sweaters to wear in time for Thanksgiving.  I think that will be my yearly thing. Regarding the…

I made a Toaster…(sweater)

I finally made a version of the Toaster sweater by Sew House Seven.  This pattern is actually Simplicity pattern #8529 but it does have Sew House Seven written on the pattern, so I believe it was a collaboration.  After doing a little research, it seems that this Simplicity pattern is a version of the original…

FO Show: Deschain

Right before Fall officially started, I finished my Deschain pullover.  I knit it out of Juniper Moon Farms Neve in the Mulberry colorway.  Neve is a 100% cotton chainette-type yarn and provides great drape. What I like about this top is that it is very versatile.  It can be styled over top a maxi dress,…

FO Show: Turtle Dove

A few posts back I relayed how I was going to use my stash of Cascade Eco+ yarn to knit up the Turtle Dove which is the latest sweater pattern by Espace Tricot. As of Sunday, I can happily call it a finished object! I previously mentioned I would do the split hem, however, I…
