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…

Crocheted Pouf & a free pattern for it!

I’m pretty sure we’ve all seen these knitted and crochet poufs everywhere…Target, Marshall’s, Walmart…you get the idea.  Some of them actually come with a hefty price tag while others are more reasonably priced but smaller in size. If you are like me and have been really wanting to make one…look no further.  I’ve been on…

FO: Mailin Sweater

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…

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…

Ideas for Fall Sweater Knitting

Look at these yarn babies! I have 2 skeins of Cascade’s Eco wool yarn which means I have 956 yards to work with. Trying to pick out the perfect sweater pattern has been challenging, but I think I’m almost there… One of my favorite newly released (and free!) patterns is the Turtle Dove sweater by…

Sewing: McCalls’s M7505 Pattern

When I want to sew or knit something that I will wear, I try to be very conscious of how it will “get along” with the other pieces I have in my wardrobe which is why I tend to make neutral-based, non-trendy items. A couple of months ago, I was in the mood to make…

Danforth Pullover

When I first saw the Danforth Pullover pattern, I instantly fell in love with it as I do with most all Quince & Co. patterns.  There’s just something about the simplicity of it that gets me…and the fact that it is very wearable.  And what’s even better- NO SLEEVES!!  For all my knitting friends currently…
