Get cozy for fall!

Fall is almost here!! I love fall, its my favorite time of year, the temperature is getting into a more comfortable range, the leaves are turning colors, craft stores have yarn on sale and all the best holidays (like my birthday) are coming up!

As the fall days get cooler, we all start thinking about keeping warm. Some, like myself, start thinking about that in July and August and start hooking up blankets, shawls and scarves. So, if you need some cozy new things this fall, I am more than happy to help you out!

I just finished this pretty pink, blue and white blanket. I've had these yarns in my statsh for quite some time. In fact, the rosy/pink yarn has been used in many projects - a pound of yarn truly does go a long way!! And the pink, blue and white variagated yarn has been calling out to me for some time, but I love it so much, I couldn't use it in just any old project. So, finally, they come together and make this soft and cozy lap blanket. Perfect for cuddling up with a good book, snoozing on the couch or for watching a movie with a bowl of popcorn!


I've been wanting to make a shawl for some time now and I had the perfect white yarn in my stash. I tried a really cool waffle pattern and I love the way it came out. This shawl is great for a sunset walk, a fancy dinner out or even to throw over your shoulders when you grab the mail or walk the dog!


The most important fall and winter accessory is a good warm scarf. I love making scarves and right now I am really having fun digging through my stash and putting together some really great scarves. This brand new navy blue scarf is classic and simple with some fun fringe!


And this colorful cotton scarf is so soft that you won't want to take it off!


This pretty glittery purple scarf is perfect for the little lady who wants to look fashionable while keeping warm:


Happy Shopping!

My project for Fall is to learn how to crochet, there weren't any classes for it at our local school, so I'm going to try and pick it myself with the help of books! Wish me luck! Your work is amazing, and prolific!
