Autumn approach!

kerstin kerr

September at last! While not wanting to wish time away, I am looking forward to cooler weather as it has been so hot this Summer! Knitting doesn't stop but it changes with the seasons and keeps thing interesting. I worked on one big project, a cardigan which had some challenges but still a very enjoyable and satisfying knit. Then I switched to smaller items to have as samples of some of the yarns that I have in my shop. As Autumn approaches I have been busy searching for new yarn and gift items and knitters are joining together in KALs and encouraging each other along the way. 

A visit to Beneath The Sun Alpacas to see all the new crias as well as my own 2 alpacas was one of the highlights of my Summer....they really make me smile:)

This was the Houghton Cardigan by Marie Greene which I knit in O-Wool Local, a yarn that I am continually impressed with and thoroughly enjoy working with. It comes in 20+ gorgeous colours.

On August 28th our fifth granddaughter arrived and this is one of the little items that I made for her. It is the Newborn Vertebrae by Kelly Brooker. I can hardly wait to meet Georgia and hold her for the first time:)

If you have seen the latest knitting magazines you will have will have noticed all the beautiful natural colours and I for one love the naturals! You will still find lots of yarn left in its beautiful natural state as well as tastefully dyed yarns for when you need colour, in my store. I am always looking for new yarn but continue to support local suppliers as much as possible.

Why not join a knit along even if its with one other person and encourage each other not just with the knitting but with your time and love....we can all use it, can't we? I will be joining the Be Kind KAL which starts September 1 and also a Mystery KAL, Left Coast hosted by Olive Knits. Details of both can be found on Ravelry and on Instagram.
