Fall Knitting


Fall Knitting, originally uploaded by ivoryblushroses.

When the weather changes and the days become damp and chill, the knitting needles that have sat idle all summer long come into use once again. In the stash of wool I received from my mother last year, there were 7 skeins of a lovely natural wool in a heavy worsted weight. I've been wanting to knit a small lap blanket and chose a simple pattern in a basketweave stitch. It is knitting up quickly on size 9 needles!

China Cabinet in Autumn
Some simple changes to the top of the china cabinet made it seem more fall like. A beeswax candle in an old brass holder, a couple of metal birds and some of my favorite ironstone pieces. The floral garland has been put away until the spring and the summery wreath has been replaced by one in fiery autumn shades.

Bunny
One of the white bunnies from my collection resides under the china cabinet. I love this season of settling in for the colder seasons.

I always get a chuckle when you say "simple", it looks more than simple to me:) Mary

Love the knitting Lisa. I love this season too. Right now I'm making an afghan to keep Jack warm this winter. I'm trying to finish it but I made it bigger than usual since he is bigger than usual...

Happy season! xo Susan
